The problem with political news is that it’s too funny to ignore.

Case in point:

Fifty-three percent of respondents to the CBS News poll said they approve of Congress’s response to last week’s shooting, which left five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), injured. Twenty-nine percent said they disapproved of the response from Congress.

First, this is a “news article” about a poll, which really ought to show up as a link under the encyclopedia definition of “fake news.” Which is why I almost never post about “news articles” that are about polls.

Except this one was too hilariously … stupid? Yeah. Stupid is good. … to ignore.

“[T]hey approve/disapprove of Congress’s response to last week’s shooting?” How could anyone even answer that question other than by flipping a coin? What was Congress’s response? “Investigate” Trump more? Raise taxes? Invade Liechtenstein? Have all the Supreme Court justices arrested? Other than taking a day off and televising a couple of speeches, I’m unaware of any congressional action related to the shooting. Oh, some republican congressmen did float a trial balloon about uninfringed gun rights for congressmen, but that sank like a rock when they suddenly found they’d accidentally pissed off all the armed people in the country who didn’t already work for them.

So seriously – what was this poll about exactly? I’d love to know.

But you won’t learn the answer by clicking the link.

In other news about the same stupid poll, everybody including generations yet unborn hates Donald Trump.
