– On Congress:
Congress is dominated by intellectual lightweights who are chiefly consumed by electioneering and largely irrelevant in a body where a handful of members and many more staff do the actual work of legislating. . . .
many members of Congress are politics-obsessed mediocrities who know little about the policy they’re purportedly crafting and voting on….
That strikes as perhaps a bit overly generous. Do some of the members do the actual work of legislating? I highly doubt it.
