  1. The fourth graf of that article gives a plausible explanation for Palin’s’ selection and continuing popularity:

    Only half (49%) believe that the current Congress is better than individuals selected at random from the phone book. Thirty-three percent (33%) believe a randomly selected group of Americans could do a better job and 19% are not sure (see crosstabs).

    Maybe that “random people could do better” idea is why Palin has been talking about representing Joe sixpacks and hockey moms so much.

  3. i kind of understand the populace’s anger, especially since it seems there was some real warrant for their concern about the bill. i, in contrast, blithely followed our elite’s lead, clucking my tongue at all these left and right-winged populist nutjobs who’d rather let the country go down a depression than do what’s sensible. but the more i hear about the entire deal, i’m beginning to have doubts i didn’t have at the time.

    elitest that i am and all.

  4. Since I’ve now come to view the congressional problem as systemic, I suspect the public frustration will continue to grow unabated, whatever the results of the elections.
