(Newser) – Congress is wrapping up a spectacularly unproductive year, as the Huffington Post notes, so why not end the year with a spectacularly dismal public-opinion poll: Enter CNN with a survey that finds two-thirds of Americans think this is the worst Congress in their lifetime. Republican or Democrat, old or young, man or woman, doesn't matter. Pretty much everyone thinks the 113th Congress is the pits. About the same percentage say Congress hasn't done anything to fix the nation's problems. Don't expect a 2014 comeback, however. With the midterm elections, Congress will be in session even fewer days next year, notes the Hill.

The world is run by visitors from space not humans any more. Welcome to the new world order. May the thinning of the herd begin. Rest in peace.

PFFFT. This is just ignoramuses quoting Liberal talking points. Do a poll asking how many BILLS WERE PASSED in the HOUSE that Reid refused to allow in the Senate. They won't know that either. Also do a poll asking the purpose of the Senate, to CREATE A SLOW DOWN so that someone like Obama cannot radically and swiftly change America. They won't know that, either. Madison is twisting in his grave.
