We all learned in High School how important popularity is. If you’re popular you get a date to the prom, you aren’t lonely on the weekends and your parents have no choice but to buy you unlimited texting! But how would you like it if people said they would rather have a root canal then to trust in anything you say or stand for?
How would you feel if you were considered less popular than NFL replacement refs, head lice, or even the band Nickelback? What if you were less popular than colonoscopies, carnies, traffic jams, cockroaches, Donald Trump, France, Genghis Khan, used-car salesmen and Brussels sprouts? Welcome to the United States Congress! This info comes from a poll conducted by Public Policy Polling when they asked Americans if they had a higher opinion of Congress or these unpleasant things.
There is good news! Congress beat out telemarketers, John Edwards, lobbyists, North Korea, the Ebola virus, Lindsay Lohan, Fidel Castro, playground bullies, meth labs, communism and gonorrhea. Whew!
