Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Hey, look Boehner!  America sent you a cake!

Public Policy Polling was the most accurate pollster of 2012, yet was routinely derided because they were left leaning.  Math, remember, has a liberal bias.

Nevertheless, this is hilarious:

Among several items and individuals tested, the automated poll found that American voters have a higher opinion of root canals, Canadian rock band Nickelback, head lice, colonoscopies, France, Donald Trump and cockroaches than they do of Congress. 

On the other hand, Congress, which registered a paltry favorability rating of 9 percent in the survey, is still more popular than telemarketers, ebola, North Korea, Lindsey Lohan, communism, meth labs and the Kardashian family

Look, I can see being less popular than France.  There's cheese and wine and mimes Emmanuel Beart.  But how the hell can you be less popular than Nickelback?
