The Worst Congress Ever
No matter how much hatred and contempt you already have for this 109th Congress, your opinion will take a nosedive when you read this article. If you’re the most jaded and cynical person in the world, you’ll still be blown away when you learn about the sleazy, corrupt, incompetent assholes who are “representing” you.
This is a long article, but it’s well worth bookmarking. The author (Matt Taibbi) has a riveting style; you’ll be at the end before you know it. There’ll never be another Hunter Thompson, but Matt Taibbi has that same white-knuckle, edge-of-your-seat prose that’ll have you reaching for the Wild Turkey.
This article doesn’t spare anybody. The Republicans get torn to shreds for being nothing but a rubber stamp for King George. But after you’ve read about how lazy, braindead and useless they all are, you’ll be ready to vote out every last one of these overpaid, underworked bloated shitbags.
As the author says: “If a hairy-necked, raincoat-clad freak like Rep. Mark Foley can get himself named co-chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children, one can only wonder: What the hell else is going on in the corridors of Capitol Hill these days?”
It’s a good read. Enjoy yourself, and vote accordingly in two weeks.
Oh, wait — before you go you’ve gotta check this out. Satisfaction guaranteed. (H/T to Dead Guy)
