The really odd thing is that the residents of Washington DC don't realize they are regarded, justifiably, as parasites. They are worthless to the vast, VAST, majority of Americans. They are liars, they are dishonest, they are obstructionist, they are worthless.
These people are more than happy to keep the entire country paying for their bullshit, and people are fed up. 18 years of war because of these "noble" people. Hypocrisy in the extreme.
