I don’t know what it is about Capitol Hill. Maybe it’s that a bunch of broke people working bizarre hours and living in close proximity is just too close to a frat house. Maybe it’s that once all the political geeks get together, they explode into joy at suddenly not being the biggest nerd in the room. Maybe it’s just the rush of power. But whatever it is, childish behavior is central to the place. As testament, I give you your government’s version of superlatives – except on capitol hill “most likely to succeed” is probably a touch more competitive than in high school.
Never say politics isn’t shallow
