The Congress of 'thieves and perverts'

Why the 109th Congress is the worst in American history.
Matt Taibbi's hilarious essay, The Worst Congress Ever, graces the cover of Rolling Stone. Therein, Taibbi explains how the United States Congress was reduced to a "cabal of thieves and perverts" in just six years and five easy steps:
  • Rule by cabal
  • Work as little as possible, and screw up what little work you do
  • Let the president do whatever he wants
  • Spend, spend, spend
  • Line your own pockets
Can you guess Rolling Stone's 10 Worst Congressmen?
