The most distressful country that you have ever seen

A result that should be shocking, from pollsters at Rasmussen Reports:
The percentage of voters who give Congress good or excellent ratings has fallen to single digits for the first time in Rasmussen Reports tracking history. This month, just 9% say Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Most voters (52%) say Congress is doing a poor job, which ties the record high in that dubious category.

Everybody despises Congress, but among Independents, only 3% rate Congress as good or excellent. That’s an amazing contempt for one of the central institutions of our nation. Read it all here. I wish I could register Independent in Texas, or that there were a third party in this country, or that one could vote 'none of the above' in any race. I suspect the results would dismay our putative leaders.

Just goes to show ya, loathing and disgust is an equal-opportunity emotion. I am so nauseous from the whole shebang of late that, for the first time in my life, I am NOT looking forward to November. Seems the more things change, the more they truly stay the same.
