While the politicians are unhappy with the budget deal, Americans are unhappy with the way it was hammered out. A Washington Post/Pew poll asked people to choose one word to describe the negotiations they’ve been watching for the past few weeks. Only 2% chose a positive word. The top 27 words were all negative. The #1 word chosen was “ridiculous,” with “disgusting, “stupid,” “frustrating,” “poor,” “terrible,” “disappointing,” “childish,” “messy,” and “joke” rounding out the top ten.
- But enough about critiques of this website…
- Politicians immediately countered that it was a “ridiculous, disgusting, stupid, frustrating, poor, terrible, disappointing, childish, messy joke of a poll!”
- So I guess we can rule out Congress and the Senate getting too many “Likes’ on their official facebook fan pages today.
- My teacher used those exact words to describe my behavior to my mother during my 3rd grade Parent-Teacher Conference!
