Just a hint
It occurs to me that R congressmen could use a higher caliber of staff members, or at least some on-tap advice to staff. Clearly their present staff members don't understand the basic nature of the internal enemy; likely some of them are in fact enemy moles. So what's a poor rep to do? Hire expensive consultants? Not needed. Consultants are giving useful advice every day, for free. Thousands of them. Now here's the hint: If you want to know something about dealing with the enemy, you won't find it by reading a newspaper, and you won't hear it from anybody who hangs out in the cool restaurants in DC. You won't get it on TV, and you won't get specific and detailed info on the radio. Are we starting to narrow it down yet? Are we getting warm?
Actually this isn't even necessary. Just repeat to yourself, once a minute during waking hours, the following mantra:
"If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog."
Note to the wobbly: this is not from the Bible, or the Constitution, or any other disreputable source that you've never read anyway. It wasn't said by any of those Neanderthal right-wing Christians. It was said by Harry Truman, who was a Democrat, so it's permissible speech even under McCain-Feingold.
