Are Some Congressmen Really that Stupid?

This one, Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA), apparently has not learned the lesson from this August recess--that being your townhall meetings will be videotaped and shared on You Tube. Here, Moran is asking that a man provide identification before Moran will answer his question. Seriously, did Moran not think this was going to make into the public realm?

There have been other reports that Congressmen are conducting an ID check before people are admitted to a townhall meeting, presumably to ensure that attendees are actually residents of the district. While that in and of itself is rediculous, there is at least a feeble attempt at a justification. But to do this before answering a question is ludicrous.
