Quote from Alexis de Tocqueville 

"There is hardly a congressman prepared to go home until
he has at least one speech printed and sent to his constituents,
and he won't let anybody interrupt his harangue until
he has made all his useful suggestions about the 24 states of the Union,
and especially the district he represents."
