An op-ed in the Washington Post suggests that people hate Congress, ‘again’. But I don’t ever recall thinking Congress anything but a collection of clowns, sellouts, buffoons, and imbeciles. It isn’t the best we send to Congress, it’s the worst- motivated, as they are, to a man and woman, by lust for power and greed for wealth. That hardly is the cream of the crop.
Have you ever known a politician who wasn’t power hungry or willing to take what they can get from lobbyists and PACS and anyone else?
If we really wanted to send the best to Congress, we would draft public servants. The people who run for office are running for self.
