Can anyone who has watched our Congress in action since January 2007 have anything but contempt for it?
In one wing of the U.S. Capitol we have what used to be the peoples' house. By jiggering district boundaries its members now choose their voters instead of having voters choosing their representatives, and it has transformed itself into the House of Reprehensibles. Fittingly, this clown show is led by a loony left dim bulb squeaker from San Francisco.
In the other wing, what once was referred to as the world's greatest deliberative body has degenerated into a national sty, a house of gasbags, in which the majority is led -- thankfully ineptly -- by Nevada's pathetically whiny version of Uriah Heap.
All in all, our national legislature probably is the greatest collection of self-seeking, time-serving poseurs ever assembled in one place.
I am in contempt not of, but for Congress.
