    Default Vader 2016

    Darth Vader is more popular than Obama, Congress, and every single 2016 presidential hopeful as of Wednesday.

    The results of a comparison of the net favorability ratings of Star Wars characters and U.S. political figures, published in The Washington Post, suggest Americans would choose a fictional evil villain as president over Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Emperor Palpatine, Paul Ryan, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Andrew Cuomo, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Martin O’Malley, Jeb Bush, Joe Biden, Rick Santorum, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell and, of course, Congress — in that order.

    I'm convinced most people just say they dislike Congress because they think it makes them sound smarter. As in, "this country would be better off if the people in charge would only follow my ideas."

    Most people can't even name their own Congressmen, and considering that most people can't name or identify pictures of the Senate Majority or Minority Leader, the House Majority or Minority Leader, etc. there's a good chance they just say "Congress is bad" simply because it's fashionable to do.

    That's not to say Congress should be lauded for their work--because the houses together have done jack shit recently--but for those kind of numbers people are clearly just piling on, otherwise we wouldn't see the re-election rates we do. I'm sure if you asked a follow up question of "what legislation should they be working on," you'd get a lot "uhhs" and "uummms" while they stall for time to come up with a BS answer they are probably parroting from somewhere in pop culture.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
