A surge that failed

In 2006, Democrats took control of the U.S. Congress when voters sent a large batch of fresh-faced Democratic Representatives and Senators to Washington to clean the place up. Well, according to a new Harris Interactive poll, they ain't doin' such a great job.

According to the poll, only 8 percent of Americans have "a great deal of confidence" in the Congress. Congress's rating is lower than that of the press, law firms, the White House, unions, public schools, and the military.

If we're to believe a growing gaggle of pundits and political prognosticators, Democrats are set to expand their margins in both houses of the Congress this November. Now let me get this straight: Only 8 of every hundred Americans think the Democrat-led Congress is doing a crappy job, so American voters are going to give the Democrats even greater control of the place. Don't make no sense, does it?
