The anonymous author, said to be a Democrat, skewers their co-workers in a few excerpts that have been released by saying, "Most of my colleagues are dishonest career politicians who revel in the power and special-interest money that's lavished upon them."
"It's far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification."
A few other jaw dropping quotes from the upcoming book can be found here:
- "My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything."
- "Fundraising is so time consuming I seldom read any bills I vote on. Like many of my colleagues, I don't know how the legislation will be implemented, or what it'll cost."
- "We spend money we don't have and blithely mortgage the future with a wink and a nod. Screw the next generation. It's about getting credit now, lookin' good for the upcoming election."
Members of Congress are not the only ones on the chopping block; the author even rails against "incredibly ignorant" American voters, calling the country a "nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification."
The mysterious book is now on sale.
