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:
– Root Canals
– 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.
