Hmmm. That's quite a tally of "misdeeds." Would this be one of the reasons the House has been called a rogue's gallery?

Of course, there are many representatives whose work and lives I have admired...

Pretty scary. Seems like a lot of them should never have made it into office.

@ BoC, let hope and pray that these are the exceptions and not the rule. If not, we're in a bad way since these are the folks who make the laws we all live by...or suppose to live by...maybe their exempt.

@ ShAe', how does that saying go about absolute power and corruption...think these are cases where power definetely corrupted absolutely!

@ Monroe, got this from a friend in an email. I modified it for this post. The original starts out with the question: NFL or NBA? Now that's a real kicker (no pun intended).

@ HD, I heard you...and yes it is some sh...stuff!

@ Lisa, {shaking my head}, too!
