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

George Washington's picture

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 not factually correct, is over-the-top, unfair and offensive.  We extend a sincere apology … to the “professional” women.

Politicians are not prostitutes … they are in fact pimps.
