Ouch, that's harsh: Congress less popular than head lice and Nickelback

Having a bad day? Take comfort in the fact you're not as hated as Congress.

According to a recent poll by Public Policy Polling, Congress just dropped to their lowest approval rating in American history, a brutal nine percent.

Things viewed more favorably than Congress include head lice, brussel sprouts, the "love-to-hate-them" band Nickelback, used car salesmen, and colonoscopies.

Yep. People have more favorable feelings about colonoscopies than Congress. At least a colonoscopy might detect cancer. (Note: the survey failed to ask what people thought about giving Congress colonscopies.)

The Internet is in agreement: Nickelback sucks
...but they're still more popular than Congress

There are some rays of hope for our congresscritters. They're still more popular than meth labs and Ebola

So, not all bad news. People like Congress better than a disease that makes you gush blood from all your body orifices until you die. Well done, Congress!
