Worst Congress Ever: Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi on How Our National Legislature Has Become a "Stable of Thieves and Perverts"
Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi takes an in-depth look at
the outgoing 109th Congress in his article, "The Worst Congress Ever."
In it, Taibbi writes that over the past six years, "The U.S. parliament
became a historical punch line, a political obscenity on par with the
court of Nero or Caligula -- a stable of thieves and perverts who
committed crimes rolling out of bed in the morning and did their very
best to turn the mighty American empire into a debt-laden, despotic
backwater, a Burkina Faso with cable." [includes rush transcript]
