The American people have pretty much lost all respect for Congress. But at least our fine elected leaders can take some solace in knowing we like them more than train wreck celebrities, serial killers, and diseases.
A new poll just asked people whether they had a higher opinion of Congress versus other notorious people and things.
A few of the things people like MORE than Congress are: Wall Street . . . witches . . . jury duty . . . dog poop . . . toenail fungus . . . cockroaches . . . the IRS . . . mothers-in-law . . . the DMV . . . potholes . . . zombies . . . hipsters . . . and HEMORRHOIDS.
That's pretty DAMNING. When Congress finishes behind the IRS and the DMV, you KNOW they've lost us. BUT . . . there were a few things people actually respect LESS than Congress.
People prefer Congress to: Vladimir Putin . . . Anthony Weiner . . . Miley Cyrus . . . the Ebola virus . . . Charles Manson . . . Lindsay Lohan . . . Honey Boo Boo . . . heroin . . . Syria . . . and twerking.
Overall, only 8% of people surveyed say they approve of the job Congress is doing.
