Remember that old joke regarding Dick Cheney's 18% approval rating, about how there's a higher percentage of dentists who recommend chewing sugary gum than there is of Americans who approve of Dick Cheney? Now let's do a version of that with the 112th and current Congress, with its comical, dumpy rating of 9%.

Sen. Michael Bennet, who is very much a member of this Congress, put together this chart showing that, among other things, there are more Americans who want the United States to become a communist country than there are Americans who approve of the performance of the first branch of government outlined in the Constitution.

Looks like those clowns in Congress did it again. What a bunch of clowns.
