What to do about our do-nothing Congress? Sure, we've tried voting them out. We've tried indicting them. Nothing works — them especially. Open mockery at least seems to get their attention, so maybe this collection of satirically motivational rhymes will prompt them to start doing what they campaigned so hard to get — their jobs.
Even if this book doesn't inspire Congress into action any more effectively than "Go the F**k to Sleep" got wide-awake children into slumberland, it will provide us frustrated citizens, like those bleary-eyed parents, a few laughs and make us feel just a little better about the whole mess.
