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?
