Throw the whole lot out

Congress is so corrupt it's almost impossible to believe. If you don't believe me, read what Rolling Stone has to say (thanks Dan). They also have a nifty list of the 10 most corrupt members of Congress. A couple highlights:

Mr. Pork, Don Young of Alaska:

And during a debate on the right of native Alaskans to sell the sex organs of endangered animals as aphrodisiacs, Young whipped out the eighteen-inch penis bone of a walrus and brandished it like a sword on the House floor.

The Bribe Taker, William Jefferson of Louisiana:

Equally shameful were Jefferson's antics after Katrina struck: He commandeered a Coast Guard helicopter to gather personal effects from his home in New Orleans -- at a time when his constituents were literally drowning in their attics. Yet despite his unethical behavior, Jefferson is cruising to re-election.

  1. Rich, I commend you for higlighting both a Democrat and Republican for your post. I read the Rolling Stone article, 9/10 members they listed were Republicans. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm sure all the people they listed suck. But I can't honestly believe that only one Democrat should make that list, please.

    Anyways, check out this deleted scence from BTTF:
