Something called GradeGov.com has assigned letter ratings based on reader opinion to the 535 members of Congress, and I haven’t quite decided what I think of this. Surely at least 291 deserve an F, maybe more, but F is an awfully broad score: it’s hard to tell the difference between #247 Ben Chandler (D-KY 6) and #531 Henry Waxman (D-CA 30).
Only two As were handed out by the readership. Oklahoma’s seven-member delegation rates as follows: #60 Jim Inhofe, B-plus; #79 Tom Coburn, B; #113 Frank Lucas, B-minus; #115 Mary Fallin, B-minus; #155 Tom Cole, C-plus; #163 John Sullivan, C; #210 Dan Boren, D.
I looked more closely at Boren’s rating, since he’s the only Democrat on board from this state. Democrats rate him more highly than do Republicans or Independents, but not much more. Most of the individual comments are, as you might expect, blather — as is this, I suppose.
