Holland — Last year’s partisanship and politicking radiated Washington to an overheated crisp, but for some reason, Congress didn’t turn out so hot.
During 2011, Gallup reported that our nation’s collective approval of Congress hit three record lows and fell at a pace that, if continued, will see support disappear entirely in 2013 — an appropriate denouement to the Mayans’ impending apocalypse. Further, by 2011’s close, Gallup found that a scant fifth of us affirmed most of Congress’s re-election and that a pitiful 1/14th of us affirmed congressional ethics.
A shame, yes. But what’s new?
