    WASHINGTON Eleven are running for the Senate. Five for state or local
    office. One for president of the United States. Another is resigning to
    become a university president. And more and more say they are hanging up
    their hats in public office altogether.

    More than three dozen members of Congress have announced they will not
    seek reelection next year, some to pursue other offices and many others
    simply to get out of Washington. Twelve have announced their plans just
    this month.

    The wave of lawmakers across chambers and parties announcing they intend
    to leave Congress comes at a time of breathtaking dysfunction on Capitol
    Hill, primarily instigated by House Republicans. The House GOP majority
    spent the past few months deposing its leader, waging a weekslong internal
    war to select a new speaker and struggling to keep federal funding
    flowing. Right-wing members have rejected any spending legislation that
    could become law and railed against their new leader for turning to
    Democrats, as his predecessor did, to avert a government shutdown.

    There is much truth in this.

    The dysfunction in Congress is entirely the fault of Republiscums/QAnon.
