It is very liberating to know that we are not the only crowd who likes to generate smiles in lieu of government decline. In one of the latest polls people preferred witches, hemorrhoids and jury duty over their lawmakers in D.C. Actually, the data in relation to some of these comparisons is pretty staggering; we have hemorrhoids to Congress at a whopping 53% to 31%; more than 7 to 10 people prefer jury duty to congress (which translates to 18% of Americans picking Congress to jury duty); and toenail fungus is even favorable over Congress by 3%.
“Congress having an 8% approval rating tells us one thing about how unhappy voters are,” said Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling. “But it’s even more telling that voters have a lower opinion of it than annoyances like the DMV and jury duty, health issues like hemorrhoids, and even witches.”
Some pretty repugnant names are surfacing explicit to our government’s status quo. I say that, even though we have such hilarity amongst the polls (above), it proves to us that our government is of some importance to us, because we call it names of such disregard, that it explains our utter disgust with it, shattering our highly-esteemed national pride. . . . And, we do not want that!
Government . . . . BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!
