How Hard Can it Be...

To find 535 non-pervert, non-lawbreaking, non-corrupt people to be senators and congressmen? I mean, really, the behavior of our elected representatives is becoming ridiculous.

And it’s hardly a Republican problem, although Foley and Craig make this generation think that gay congressional sex scandals are sole the province of the GOP. I’m old enough to remember the Barney Frank fiasco.

But it’s not just sex scandals, either: we’ve got two assaults, lots and lots and lots of corruption, and a general sleaziness seldom found outside your local adult bookstore.

We need to wash out Congress, from top to bottom. Stop voting for them based on party, and start voting for them based on integrity, for heaven’s sakes. Trust that a collection of 500-odd decent human beings would make the right decision together, instead of blindly pulling the lever because the candidate has an R or a D next to their name.

It’s the only way we’ll get a government not full of creeps, weirdoes, and sleazebags.
