Worst Congress ever?

A couple more links on this topic, the first two coming via James Wolcott's blog, which has now been moved to the new Vanity Fair website (which actually has the content now):

Wonkette, in a posting entitled Rape, Murder, it's just a shot away, on Rep. Jim Gibbons, who wants to be governor of Nevada.
And Talking Points Memo, on our president's campaigning for Rep. Don Sherwood.

And here's a new report: Under the Influence, Special Interest Money and Members of Congress (press release) and web site from Clean Up Washington, a Public Citizen project to identify special interests' influence on Congress. Among the most influenced, Bill Frist and the entire Tennessee legislative delegation. Here's North Carolina's delegation.

Can any of this be fixed? There's a list of priorities and policy changes for a new government on Among them, under Congress: "Criminals: expel convicted Members and cancel their pensions".


  • Oh woe! WOE IS US!!! Maybe I shouldn't even go vote this November since you Democrats have it all locked up. Congrats on your stupendous win...but shouldn't you be doing your end zone victory dance AFTER you score the touchdown?
