As the government shutdown has dragged into its second week, Congress is apparently less popular than another annoying pain in the backside: hemorrhoids. Public Policy Polling surveyed more than 500 registered voters and learned that 85 percent of them currently disapprove of the job Congress is doing. But that's both boring and doesn't tell us EXACTLY how much we totally hate Congress right now. So the polling people decided to have a little bit of fun with their jobs and started asking how our legislators compared to a bunch of other awful things.
The results? Congress was seen as less favorable than witches, zombies, toenail fungus, hemorrhoids and — gasp! — even the DMV and the IRS (and you totally know that someone at the DMV just hung that part of the survey on the breakroom fridge). But Congress still had the edge over Vladimir Putin, Charles Manson, Honey Boo Boo, the Ebola virus and heroin. Congrats, guys! [Source]
