Congress vs. Cockroaches

Jan 09, 2013 -- 10:10am

This is not a political statement, but a matter of fact. Americans do not like Congress. The proof? A recent survey by Public Policy Polling.

Voters were asked whether they preferred Congress or a traditionally unpleasant person or thing. Congress, and its 9 percent approval rating, lost out to some pretty unpleasant stuff.

Congress is liked less than: root canals, the rock band Nickelback, colonoscopies, traffic jams, Donald Trump, France, the warlord Genghis Kahn and cockroaches. Wow, that's quite the list!

The good news is that Congress is actually liked MORE than: the Kardashians, North Korea, the ebola virus, Lindsay Lohan, Fidel Castro, meth labs, communism and gonorrhea.

That's good news for Nickelback :)
