NO MATTER HOW MUCH LIPSTICK YOU PUT ON THE PIG...:

The Speaker's Grand Illusion (David Broder, 12/27/07, Real Clear Politics)

After one year of Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, public approval ratings for Congress have sunk below their level when Republicans were still in control. A Post poll this month put the approval score at 32 percent, the disapproval at 60.

In the last such survey during Republican control, congressional approval was 36 percent. So what are the Democrats to make of that? They could be using this interregnum before the start of their second year to evaluate their strategy and improve their standing. But if Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House and leader of their new majority, is to be believed, they are, instead, going to brag about their achievements.


...folks are still going to know that you're the ones squealin'.

Imagine just how low their poll numbers would be if the media told the truth about their doings.
