Ted Poe, Obsessed With Vagina

When you're named Al Green, of course you're going to talk about the ladies
For hardcore political junkies -- and we do mean hardcore -- capitolwords.org can be downright addicting. Although the actual meaningfulness of the site might be up for debate, its wonkish fun factor is not: the site tracks how many words are spoken by individual U.S. legislators in a given time period and the frequency of certain words.

As might be expected, Sheila Jackson Lee is the undisputed champ among Texas lawmakers: measuring wordcount in the Congressional Record from May 13, 2009 to May 12, 2010, the Honorable SJL racked up 12,774 words -- about 4,300 more than second-placer Ted Poe.

Democrat Charles Gonzalez falls dead last, at a mere 380. (Nine of the top 10 are Republicans; six of the bottom ten are Democrats).
