Now this is a list with some real competition for the top spot.
You might think Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina would have it in a walk away! However seems the best the South Carolina Republican can do is a measly third place! Poor old Tea Party favorite Senators David Vitter (R-LA), Tom Coburn (R-OK) and James Inhofe (R-OK) can't even make the top ten! It must be horribly embarrassing for them in right wing circles.
