Polls, lies, and statistics

I don't know said "Lies, damn lies, and statistics", but that pretty much describes the recent binge of news pointing out that President Bush's approval numbers are dismal, down near the patron saint of liberalism, Jimmy Carter. However, what every one of these stories don't tell you is that congress' approval rating is equally as low. Nancy Pelosi's crew is sitting at about 35%, while Bush is around 32%, a statistical dead heat.

But of course, since the Congress is controlled by the media's buds, that story is probably hidden on page H-47.
