99 Percent Loathe Congress for the Wrong Reasons

Posted October 22, 2014 at 1:23pm

Even after occupying every headline-grabbing address around the country, anti-establishment activists remain hung up on outdated grievances against elected officials.  

Might some lawmakers be feathering their nest eggs with K Street contributions? That’s certainly a possibility.  

But as “The Daily Show” cleverly portrayed just a few weeks ago, the greatest trick Congress ever pulled was making the electorate believe that what transpires on Capitol Hill is anything more than political theater.

Haters, take heart!  

Stop wasting your time denigrating lawmakers for POSSIBLY being corrupt and redirect your rancor where it truly belongs: aimed squarely at the ideological grandstanding and procedural feet-dragging pols currently attempt to pass off as part of the job.
