Bernstein argues that hate for Congress, in an of itself, isn't a good enough reason to demand reform:
People always hate Congress. Mark Twain hated Congress. Will Rogers hated Congress. Johnny Carson hated Congress. Jay Leno hates Congress, and I suppose the disembodied head of Jay Leno will be hating Congress decades into the future. That Congress is unpopular is about as remarkable as a Joss Whedon show getting lousy ratings on network TV.
