I'd go with Corruption. It's always there and is the lowest hanging fruit of all the evils in Washington DC.

The corrupt always think they can get away with it. They consider We the People too stupid to figure it out. With at least 50 years of supporting example it is easy to see how that conclusion is reached.

WASHINGTON -- The Simpsons on unpredictable judges:

Marge: "Do you want your son to become chief justice of the Supreme Court, or a sleazy male stripper?"

Homer: "Can't he be both, like the late Earl Warren?"

Marge: "Earl Warren wasn't a stripper!"

Homer: "Now who's being nave."

Warren's actual vices tended more toward the ideological. Dwight Eisenhower came to regret the liberal activism of his choice for the Supreme Court, calling it the "biggest damned-fool mistake I ever made." Other presidents must also have been frustrated by their selections on the far side of life...
