too long - all you need is “A House of Fools”! But that leaves out the Senate; so let’s go with “A Congress of Fools”, though that might be repetitious - to simplify, how about “Congress”!

Not sure what I might do to edit my post to be less inappropriate; if it helps, I don’t really feel everyone in Congress is a fool!
