Congressman: Big Ben is an 'Idiot'

A respected member of the House of Representatives is finally taking a stand on an issue affecting the American people -- he thinks Ben Roethlisberger is an "idiot."

The Congressman making the statement is Rep. Tom Rooney (R -FL) -- who also happens to be the grandson of legendary Pittsburgh Steelers founder Art Rooney.

During a recent stop at a Florida high school, Tom was asked about his favorite football team -- to which he replied, "The Steelers, I have no choice ... but our quarterback is still an idiot."

How's that for politically correct?
