Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

Okay, these numbers just make no sense to me. The latest New York Times/CBS News Poll shows that 82 percent of Americans now disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job.

Where the hell are they finding these people? Sensory deprivation tanks? Institutions for the criminally insane? Astronauts just back from the Space Station?

Are these approvers really just thankful that they haven’t yet received a photo of their congressman shirtless, or worse?
