A new poll finds that Congress, with a surreally dismal 9% favorability rating, comes out behind when tested against 26 reasonably universally disliked things, including traffic jams, colonoscopies, Genghis Khan, NFL replacement refs, the band Nickelback and the country of France. They did beat out telemarketers, gonorrhea, North Korea and the Kardashians. So....there's hope? Sigh.

Brussel Sprouts: 69% Congress: 23%
Replacement refs: 56% Congress: 29%
