Congress Critters

Now, I'm not a fan of Congress Critters generally speaking. In fact, if this blog were a comic book, my arch-nemesis would be Senator Payne or Congressman Destruction or perhaps to a lesser extent Delegate Death, who would only do battle with me in American Samoa, Guam, the US. Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia.

Delegate Death is not expected to be a big sell when the action figures come out.

However, if you want to raise your level of ire about the current 109th Congress to a point where blood will shoot out of your eyes and make flames shoot out of the side of your head, take a look at this article in Roling Stone. If you're too lazy to get to even through the first paragraph, here's the second and it pretty much sums up the tone of the rest of the article:

These past six years were more than just the most shameful, corrupt and incompetent period in the history of the American legislative branch. These were the years when the U.S. parliament became a historical punch line, a political obscenity on par with the court of Nero or Caligula -- a stable of thieves and perverts who committed crimes rolling out of bed in the morning and did their very best to turn the mighty American empire into a debt-laden, despotic backwater, a Burkina Faso with cable.
Makes the whole "Do Nothing" 80th Congress look like a regular pillar of legislative excellence.
