Doing Something Productive?

The Atlantic has a fascinating (and short) interview with former Ohio GOP Congressman Steve LaTourette, who just resigned after 18 years. He answers questions about what’s going on with the extremist Republicans in the house and how John Boehner is attempting to deal with them (and largely failing).

My favorite answer is the very last one:

Q: How about you? You recently resigned from Congress after nine terms.
LaTourette: I’ll go back and find something productive to do with my life. As opposed to the last 18 years.
