Obama More Popular Than Stimulus Bill And STDs, Congress Not So Much

Cheer Up Barry, Compared To The Stimulus, You're A-Okay!

Alert the presses America! A new poll is sending shockwaves across the nation with some startling findings. Brace yourself for the surprise of the century: President Barack Obama is more popular than his stimulus bill!

Are you still breathing? I know it's hard to believe, but a full 76 percent of Americans approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, while only 54 percent support the economic stimulus bill he is pushing.

So while Barry is slightly less popular than sliced bread or an all-expense paid vacation to Cancun, he is decidedly more popular than a flat tire, Lindsay Lohan's debut album, or getting your wisdom teeth removed, without anesthesia.

Congress, on the other hand, didn't fare quite as well. With a measly 29 percent public approval rating, Congress as a whole finds itself hovering somewhere between Mad Cow Disease and SARS, though still slightly ahead of Ebola.

Democratic leaders were also considered slightly more palatable than their Republican counterparts, with 60 percent of people saying they approve of the way Democratic leaders in Congress are handling their jobs, compared to just 44 percent for Republicans.

Good thing Republicans don't care about silly things like public opinion polls or popularity contests. Or getting elected. Ever again.

Just ask Dubya!

Congress slightly ahead of Ebola? I think that's being a little too generous!
