Congress: Lowest Approval Rating EVER

Remember, this Congress was supposed to be the "fix" for the previous Congress' inability to get things accomplished. How did that work out?

And now the same bunch is asking us to install a President who has all of two years' expericnce in the Senate, was wrong on the surge, is wrong about Judicial activism, is wrong about taxes, is wrong about ending our energy crisis--and who is a bona fide Marxist to boot?

At least if the polls are any indication, a lot of people aren't buying it:
THIS IS BAD FOR THE COUNTRY: Poll: Military approval beats Congress's 71-12. "Gallup's annual update on confidence in institutions finds just 12% of Americans expressing confidence in Congress, the lowest of the 16 institutions tested this year, and the worst rating Gallup has measured for any institution in the 35-year history of this question." (Via JWF, who notes that the Pelosi era hasn't done much for Congress's approval ratings.)
So why aren't the Republicans wanting to end this insanity not shouting this stuff from the mountaintops? Sun Tzu: when your enemy is at his weakest: attack. (And yes, John, this means you too...)
