The popular kids in Congress
Just like mean girls, members of Congress roll in cliques. Congressional clique members even save seats for each other, eighth grade lunchroom style.
“It’s like church,” said Rep. James P. McGovern (D-MA). “Everyone sits in the same chairs — and if anyone sits in our chairs, we give them a dirty look and they leave.”
That's how he acts in church?! So the U.S. Capitol is actually a junior high school, and members of congress think it's okay to give people dirty looks in church. (Is that a new strategy to reach faithful voters? Giving 'em dirty looks?) Good to know that your Congressional representative is not any more mature - or any more well behaved on Sunday - than a very mean girl. Nice. [Politico]
