You know, I came across this
video a few days back. It does quite a nice job at giving me the urge to wish we could have nation wide elections on the pay and days worked by our oh so lovely representatives.
They can spend an whole day pontificating/blabbering/eulogizing a fellow member or figure....push for new federal boxing oversight (I am looking at you McCain), and tons of other wastes of time, yet they cannot, as pointed out, even be bothered to read the bills they pass, and worse, dont bother to look at what earmarks might have been stuffed in out of the selfish fear that their own earmarks might get cut if they threw a fuss. Disgusting!
On another note, with regard to the parents sig...I would offer this: In explaining any puzzling Washington phenomenon, always choose stupidity over conspiracy, incompetence over cunning. Anything else gives them too much credit. - Charles Krauthammer
With all due respect to FDR, I think this one is closer to the truth concerning the political clown car that is congress.
PS. Apologies to all the decent representitives, may God help you all.
