Uh, no. I've got a 'roid flare-up right now like you wouldn't believe. I can't bend over without it feeling like there's a handful frosted flakes being slowly inserted into my rectum. Every time I wipe my ass there's what feels like a cluster of sunflower seeds, and it just shreds the oiler paper. I'd much rather have congress than this.

Somebody else's hemorrhoid isn't your problem.

Well they better have some sort of preparation before the next election.

For the people elected to prove government can't work the rating couldn't be better.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I'd much rather have congress than this.


I'd much rather have a federal government that doesn't have the power to screw up my life as they take most of my money.  All the while their rich friends get richer and I can't afford to get my 'roids zapped with a laser or whatever they do to make them go away.

Ok now just what kind of polling firm uses dog poop as a comparison model and was it skewed toward the dog poop.

Well, I wouldn't hire a plumber that didn't believe in plumbing.

I must have misunderstood the question when the pollsters called. I told them I'd prefer outsiders to the asses that are in there.
 
2013-10-10 05:31:38 PM  
This is the most important question.

In the last presidential election, did you vote for
Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?
49%   Barack Obama
................................................
43%   Mitt Romney
....................................................
8%    Someone else/Don't remember

So, did the Onion get the idea from PPP, or did PPP get the idea from the Onion.
 
2013-10-10 05:33:29 PM  
So 65% of the people polled describe themselves as Moderate or Liberal yet only 57% voted for Obama or other. What is wrong with the other 7% please?

The people driving the shutdown are mostly first term Congressmen elected because they were outside the establishment. They are the worst part of the problem right now.

Funny you should mention hemorrhoids because I have a pretty bad santorum right now.

Onion article is about two weeks old, but the unpopularity of congress is widespread enough to give multiple people that idea.

Damn deceptive media. Congress beat out genital warts 47 - 43.

MY congresscritter is a batshiat looney who is even worse than the batshiat looney he replaced.

"While Congress remains divided amidst the government shutdown,
Americans are united in their disapproval of the legislating body. Of registered voters polled, 85% disapprove of the job Congress is doing. Only 8% approve- Democrats, Republicans and Independents are almost equally united in their distaste for Congress, with only 7%, 10% and 8% approving respectively. Very conservative voters differed slightly with a support of 15%."

Notice that the teahadists are the most likely to support congress burning the whole thing down.

I'm more scared for this country when there's 16% undecided who are torn between Congress and hemorrhoids. You mean, there are people who like hemorrhoids?

A lot of people from hyper partisans to actual moderates call themselves moderates.

there is a small percentage of people who, when polled, have no idea to what they are responding.
