    Even if you don't like reading about polls, you may enjoy checking this one out.

    The Pew Research Center asked 749 Americans to offer just one word to describe their current impressions of Congress.

    Turns out no one word dominated the list, but the sentiment was consistent:

    Dysfunctional (chosen 21 times.)

    Corrupt (20)

    Self-serving, self-centered or selfish (19)

    Inept (16)

    Confused, confusing, confusion (15) was tied with incompetent, ineffective and lazy

    And some of the terms were just insulting. Check it out here to see the full list.

    Meanwhile, the latest Gallup tracking poll finds Congress' approval rating at a skimpy 16 percent.

    My word woulda been "FAIL".
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    And appended with 'whores'.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    It has a ring to it, indeed.
