THIS IS NOT A JOKE....BUT A POLL!
It takes real skill to be less appreciated than one of the most phobia-inducing insects on the planet, but somehow Congress managed, hitting new lows in a recent Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey that found even cockroaches more appealing.
Also MORE popular than Congress: root canals, NFL replacement referees, head lice, Canadian rock band Nickelback, colonoscopies, carnies (that is, carnival employees), traffic jams, Donald Trump, France, Genghis Khan, used-car salesmen, Washington political pundits and brussels sprouts.
“We all know Congress is unpopular,” said PPP president Dean Debnam. “But the fact that voters like it even less than cockroaches, lice and Genghis Khan really shows how far its esteem has fallen with the American public over the last few weeks.”
It wasn’t all bad news for Congress, however; the elected body still managed to beat out John Edwards, lobbyists, telemarketers, the Kardashians, North Korea, Lindsay Lohan, playground bullies, Fidel Castro, meth labs, communism, gonorrhea and the Ebola virus.
DO YOU THINK THIS WILL MAKE THEM BETTER CONGRESSMEN?
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
OH, YOU THOUGHT THEY'D CARE?
NOT UNLESS MAYBE YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THEIR CAMPAIGNS WAS OVER A MILLION $$$$.
THEY HAVE FINANCE COMMITTEES, THEY DON'T HAVE TO CARE!
Head lice, cockroaches more popular than Congress.
