Congress Is Less Popular than Cockroaches, Lice, Root Canals, Colonoscopies, Traffic Jams, Used Car Salesmen or Genghis Khan

… Or Communism, BP during the Gulf Oil Spill, Nixon During Watergate or King George During the American Revolution

We’ve previously noted that Congress is less popular among Americans than Communism, BP during the Gulf oil spill, Nixon during Watergate or King George during the American Revolution.

Public Policy Polling has a new poll out showing that Congress is less popular than:

  • Cockroaches
  • Lice
  • Root Canals
  • Colonoscopies
  • Traffic Jams
  • Used Car Salesmen
  • or Genghis Khan

The poll did not examine whether – as in China – politicians are viewed as less trustworthy than prostitutes.

But given that regulators sleep with industry-bought prostitutes, it is hard to tell where one ends and the other starts.

Postscript:  Obviously, my comparison of politicians with prostitutes is offensive, hyperbole, incorrect, and unfair.  We extend a sincere apology … to the hard-working “professional” women.

Politicians are not prostitutes … they are – in fact – pimps.

    If our “Brave men and women in uniform” are “fighting for our freedom” then why is the Congress, the Senate and the Supreme Court TAKING IT AWAY? Looks like they’ve been fighting the wrong enemy.

    Enough Government abuse ….. To date, 290 million human beings have been slaughtered at the hands of government…..

    Government democide and disarmament are greatest threats of violence

    Demand A Real Plan – Disarmament leads to Democide ….

    Well, what do you expect from a poll of people who:

    1. Think that ‘class’ means a Cadillac instead of a Mercedes,

    2. And of whom 34 per cent are obese (and 6 per cent are morbidly obese – +100lbs .. I mean, really?), and

    3. Some 46 per cent seriously believe that the world was made in (literally) six days.

    I suppose they are the same people who think that every man and his dog needs an assault rifle. Hello? If you had a rag-tag defence force it might be a good idea, but you have an educated, superbly trained and qualified army, navy and air force – not to mention the Marines – who do the job of defending you properly and well. The US is not Syria.

      It is possible, my good man that you are right on a couple counts. However since you are much less educated than those good gentlemen who spilled their own blood and spent their own money to fight for real freedom and then had the good forsight to actually frame a government that was diametrically opposed to the good british one they had just severed themselves from, I suggest you enlighten yourself as to their experience. Their intent was not that every “hick” should be armed, but rather, that every “hick” and any other able bodied man be armed so that they might kill, maime or otherwise subjugate German, Chinese, European, or even American marines, navies, armies and air forces that might attempt to usurp from them their “God-given” rights. They were not to have assault rifles, but any and all “ARMS” necessary and to be trained in the use of these as a citizen and not a military. This militia of the individual citizens was to defeat any standing army the United States or any other regime might assemble. Just as the “rag-tag” yankee rebel insurgents thoroughly trounced the highly trained forces of the King, so it seems our highly trained National Guard, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines seem to be having a devil of a time defeating a “rag-tag” bunch of drug-jaded Afghani’s and Iraqi insurgents to the point that we were somehow never able to “win” the war in either locality. So you in your fantastical wisdom pontificate upon the philosophy that we Americans are all without class, obese and don’t understand basic science, yet you haven’t the historical where-with-all to determine that determined men and women have always, by the most simple means, brought the deluded, tyrannical oligarchs and mis-fits of your ignorant ilk into order and union whether by word or by sword. I wish that it were possible to speak sense to the senseless, but then again they are they, who pass laws for the lawless and marvel with drooling chins and slack jaws that the disorderly will not assume order upon their puny orders. Such is the destruction of once good society, but it is long destroyed ‘ere the revolutions come. So, though I would love to believe the propaganda of the oligarchy which has usurped a republic, I cannot agree that the troops you mention are defending anyone in this once great nation “properly and well.” These disagreements to which I have alluded, are the crux upon which revolts become the hinge. The US is not Syria! It is America the home of the Free! You shaking and sad knees will also bow when humility removes from your bones your strength and you realize in your pitiful delusion of intelligence that not only did a supreme being most of us call God,truly create, in whatever time period he chose, this ordered Chaos into what your finite and truly enslaved mind cannot even comprehend in the fad cult you call science, but destruction of it is done just as summarily in a blink of an eye. You think terrorists are terrible, wait until you meet that being you deny…Cheerio

    • But Obama is working on it.
      Obama is conflicted … He wants to see Assad be overthrown by his alQueda and Muslim Brotherhood allies, but he can’t help himself but to admire Assad’s brutal dictatorial tactics.
      Obama can hardly wait to employ them here on us … All that’s standing in his way is that he hasn’t been able to disarm us yet.

  • Rape is more popular than congress now.

  • Jame A.Garfield: “Now, more than is the people who are responsible for the character of their congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt,the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption.”

    I wonder if they polled for :


    Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    Bleeding Festering Sores

    Genital crabs and warts


    Syphilis were left off the list

    Wait a second I found it “Bleeding Festering Sores and Irritable Bowel Syndrome” tied at 10% with Congress that’s why it was left off the list

    Next time lets try to improve the poll ratings of ” Bleeding Festering Sores and Irritable Bowel Syndrome” so they are ahead of Congress.
