This is why the argument “How can someone like Herschel Walker do the important work of being a senator with his obvious brain damage and werewolf fetish”? What, exactly, is a Senator’s work again? Vote with the party unless the personal rewards for not doing so outweigh any personal/career cost.
That’s it. That’s the whole fucking job and most of them don’t even worry about the second part.Sure, some of them go above and beyond this bare minimum in order to ruthlessly gather power and influence far beyond the job description, but one of those bobbing bird toys could be a Senator if it bobbed with enough force to push a button and Mitch was there to move it between Yes and No.
