A Congressman Wrote A Book Anonymously That Is Guaranteed To P*ss You Off

84 pages of how the United States House of Representatives really works is set to be released by a small Minnesota publisher on May 24th. The tell-all, written by a sitting US congressman rumored to be a Democrat, confirms the storied we’ve heard and adds a few new twists to how life as a “public servant” actually works opposed to the facade of friendly people in nice clothes who shake your hand and care deeply for your needs, whatever they may be.

First let’s start off by saying that like anything, there are exceptions to the rule. There’s gonna be a district of good people somewhere who have elected a man or a woman who genuinely cares about their municipalities and their lives and improving them no matter what. There are far more, however, nefarious career con artists who have seen first hand through their families or learned coming up the ladder that congressional politics is, for the most part, all or nothing scumbaggery. They know the system and are bred for it.

This particular congressman has decided that through anonymity he (says he’s a he but could be a she?) will only honestly and openly describe the life of a US Representative at the expense of letting the people know exactly how he — and most of his colleagues — view the American public. DailyMail.com reports having seen the book, using these bullet points to describe the contents:

  • ‘My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything,’ an anonymous member of Congress writes in a new book
  • ‘Voters are incredibly ignorant and know little about our form of government and how it works,’ he writes
  • ‘It’s far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification’
  • The author is a Democrat in Congress who laid out his complaints to a long-time friend and former Capitol Hill staffer who edited them into a book
  • ‘The Confessions of Congressman X’ will be released May 24 by a small Minnesota-based ‘vanity press’ publisher 

As disturbing as that sounds, it isn’t really all that far off from how many Americans already view congress. Their approval rating barely hits double digits. They do…nothing. Partisan politics and campaigning have replaced governing in America. There are good people coming up with great ideas being squashed by people like this guy who buy their way through life one election at a time, hoping to someday get the call to the upper chamber where all that fundraising can be replaced with a few years of vacation in between. Maybe someday someone will find out you have the right look for a presidential run.

It would be impossible to eliminate politics from government. Limiting the amount of time a particular politician can remain in office, however, would go far towards removing people like the selfish bastard who wrote this book and everyone else who has turned Capitol Hill into 535 ongoing campaigns.
