Lower than Car Salesmen

Politico reports that members of Congress, both House and Senate, rate lower on public opinion polls than car salesmen.
Being a member of Congress rates as the least ethical and honest professions – faring worse than car salesmen by 4 percent – according to a new Gallup poll out Wednesday.
I'd say that there is good reason for that, and it's a bipartisan opinion.

We elect politicians to political office. It's a hazard of the democratic process. Where we err is in letting them stay in office more than two terms.

I'd defer to that anonymous pundit who exclaimed that "Politicians, like diapers, have to be changed frequently – and for the very same reason."

In closing, I'd also defer to the judgment of another great American.
There is no distinctly American criminal class – except Congress.
Mark Twain
I intend to vote against all incumbents in the next Congressional elections.

We may very well screw up 2010, but every incumbant on the ballot should NOT have a check mark.
