The “throw out all the rascals next election” plan will not work because: (a) most voters think their representative and senators are fine, and (b) electing wholesale a bunch of newbies will give you a Congress that is even more dependent on lobbyists, bureaucrats and professional staffers.

What would most help would be to stop electing flap-jawed, flannel-mouthed four-flushers, and dingbats who mainly run around with their hair on fire screaming.
