When you are arrogant about your incompetence

The US Congress is dysfunctional, incompetent and corrupt and yet most members are blissfully arrogant about their inability to balance a budget et al. They are still quite confident of their moral and intellectual superiority. They are convinced that government is a righteous tool that should be used to force US to conform to their clearly superior moral vision.

Americans are frustrated with nearly everyone in Washington - including President Obama, Congress, and the Democratic and Republican parties - and have become increasingly pessimistic about what the future holds, according to a new CBS News poll.

Seven in ten Americans are dissatisfied with the way things are going in Washington, including 22 percent who say they are "angry" about the situation. Just 15 percent overall approve of the job being done by Congress.
