Congressional approval falls to single digits for the first time ever. Pretty amazing, but just about right: people didn't put the Democrats in charge so they could keep rolling over on everything, they put the Democrats in charge because Bush drove the country off a cliff and they finally got sick of it. To whom is the Pelosi/Reid strategy of perpetual appeasement supposed to be appealing? The activists and party-line Democrats hate it; swing voters don't want it; and Republicans will hate them anyway no matter what they do. I'm surprised they found 9% of people willing to say that they like anything about what's going on.

UPDATE: This impacts the FISA issue, too. The Congressional leadership owns this debacle, not Obama; it's utterly insane to expect a presidential candidate to humiliate himself losing a fight with his own caucus.
