|Poor Louie. He don't get no respect|
Nobody loves them. But the funny thing is that people have more love for parasites and STD's than they do for congresscritters. With a 9% approval rating this Congress isn't feeling very much love, but at least the voters score the lawmakers higher than some things.
What would be an interesting test of these ratings would be to ask the same questions but instead of lumping all of Congress together, have the voters compare their particular varmint to the same despicable items as were used in this test. It has been my experience that most voters think their particular representative is okay... its all those other scofflaws that are the problem.
