Congress and Cockroaches

What do they have in common, other than a little alliteration?

They're quite unpopular with the American public, according to the latest PPP poll (since we're alluding to alliteration!):

Business Insider reports that people preferred cockroaches to the 2012 Congress. They also preferred "root canals, the NFL replacement referees, lice, Nickelback, colonoscopies, political pundits, carnies, traffic jams, ... France, Genghis Khan, used car salesmen, [and] Brussels sprouts... On the other hand, Congress won out over telemarketers and the Kardashians, again showing the good taste of the majority of us.

What a great poll! Finally, one that interests me!

Good gravy! The Kardashians actually showed up on a poll?

This rating of Congress is belied by the fact that over 90% of the House of Representatives gets re-elected every year, year after year, as their poll numbers steadily decline.

If this doesn't compute, that makes at least three of us (you, me, and myself).
