They Say We Get Politicians That We Deserve

Onorato, Specter, Ravenstahl

Man, what did we do to deserve these three?

I'm thinking of "Schmuck, Pisher, and Shyster" as a caption for this:
Onorato, Ravenstahl, Specter: Schmuck, Pisher, and Shyster

The phrase "we get the politicians we deserve" seems to originate with Thomas Jefferson who said, “The government you elect is government you deserve.” H.L. Mencken put it a bit more coarsely when he wrote, “People deserve the government they get, and they deserve to get it good and hard.
