How Good is Your Congressman's Vocab?

Words with Reps: Map of Vocabulary on the House Floor is a map to display the breadth of vocabulary of each of the nation’s 435 voting Representatives based on their speeches in the House.

The map shows each Representative's 'SQPD Ranking', measuring their usage of 3,393 different words that might be found on the SAT. The Congressional Record, the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress, was used for the textual analysis of each Representative's vocabulary.

So how does your Representative rank?
