Congress Critter Approval Rating Drops...

And I'm a graduate of the university of DUH!
It's a Full Moon in Washington

The poll  a new Associated Press-GfK poll finds the tea party has lost support, Republican House Speaker John Boehner is increasingly unpopular and people are warming to the idea of not just cutting spending but also raising taxes – anathema to the GOP – just as both parties prepare for another struggle with deficit reduction. The poll finds more people are down on their own member of Congress, not just the institution, an unusual finding in surveys and one bound to make incumbents particularly nervous. In interviews, some people said the debt standoff itself, which caused a crisis of confidence to ripple through world markets, made them wonder whether lawmakers are able to govern at all.

Did we really need a poll to tell us this? Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moon light? If you voted Republican you have. But, you thought it was Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and he passed out Jesus Juice.

 Much about the next election hinges on independent voters (the dumbest and least informed), the ever-growing group fiercely wooed by campaigns for years. These respondents, the poll found, were the least forgiving toward incumbents and shifted substantially toward the need to raise taxes as part of the deficit and debt solution. They shift like the moon. *Poof, no new taxes. *Poof raise taxes. They don't know what they want or can find their own butts on a map.

My solution to the politician problem is term limits. Instead of amending the Cosntituti­on for abortion or traditiona­l marriage only - let's pass a law that no Senator or House Representa­tive can serve two consecutiv­e terms?

That way, if the person wants to run again - they simply have to sit out for one term and then they can run again in six or two years respective­ly.

AND no golden health
