You may have a point that the effects of kryptonite were handled inconsistently. But your original complaint was to do with Superman getting vanquished by common thugs. It's surely relevant, though, that this occurred in the presence of kryptonite - hence, the Senator mentioning it. And if you dislike that Supes can be rendered helpless as a kitten by a mere rock, then that's the flaw of the mythos in general (not SR in particular).
