Matt Taibbi's article in Rolling Stone
is awesome. It's called "The Worst Congress Ever
" and boy howdy, does it explain just how f-cked up Washington is.
Excerpt:There is very little that sums up the record of the U.S. Congress in the Bush years better than a half-mad boy-addict put in charge of a federal commission on child exploitation. After all, 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?
And that's just the opening 'graph. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and then you'll get pissed.
