Quote of the Day:
""Congress does two things very well: one is nothing and two is overreact."
-- Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga. (Referring to the recently passed bill which cracks down on mortgage lenders who steer buyers toward risky subprime loans)
The U.S. Congress, particularly for a Republican, is pretty much the only fucking place in America where the easiest way to get and keep a job is to basically insist that the entire institution and everything it stands for is shit. Imagine for a minute walking into your office and applying for employment, then telling not only your prospective boss but every other employee there -- as well as the media -- that the whole goddamned place is an inefficient, corrupt mess and that nothing can fix it. Now imagine being allowed to repeat this ridiculous public mantra every single day for the duration of the position that you, for some unknown reason, were actually given.
You know what, you pompous asshole? Somebody out there hired you to change things -- to make the system better. Shut the fuck up, stop bitching about it and get to work.
