The Worst Congress Ever!

I often wonder as I read around the internet at various conservative sites how the denial and delusion that runs so deep, survives. As if anymore proof were needed, Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone Magazine has written the definitive article on the 109th do-nothing-but-fuck-up-the-country-congress. Ths 109th has managed to work less than any congress in American history, topping the old Truman congress of the 40's by more than a month. Then of course is the corrution that runs deeper than the Mariana Trench abyss. Read the terrific story, The Worst Congress Ever by Matt Taibbi

Take a listen to interview of Matt by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!

Great article - if one can bear the pain of getting through it.

I love the cartoon. Cue Spike Jones and the orchestra ... "when der fuehrer says we ist der master race..."

So, in addition to being corrupt, they are also lazy.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Hope. It is a painful reality, but signals our need to confront the truth and work for change.
Kind of amazing that it's Rolling Stone magazine that has done some of the best reporting this year.

I wish we had a do-nothing Congress. That would be paradise compared to the affirmative depradations visited upon us by the 109th: MCA, the confirmation of assorted right-wing judges, two of them to the Supreme Court, the Patriot Act, Part Deux, to mention a few. I'm too depressed to look up all the other things.
