According to William Bigelow on Breitbard.com,
Now what would you think the Democratic Party’s favorite Public Policy Polling (PPP) would find, if taking favorability ratings for Congress?
PPP found that Congress rated lower than colonoscopies, lice, root canals, and being stuck in traffic. Also beating out Congress were used car salesmen, carnival workers, NFL replacement referees, Genghis Khan and cockroaches.
What could PPP find that would be less popular than Congress? Lindsay Lohan, the Kardashians, John Edwards, Fidel Castro, North Korea, Washington lobbyists, gonorrhea and ebola.
Meanwhile, in Jewish world news, Satmar has come to be associated with convicted sex offender, Nechemya Weberman. Google “Satmar” and you will find Weberman in 7 of the top ten hits. Googling Satmar + Weberman yields ~97,000 hits!
It didn’t have to be this way. Satmar insiders knew he was guilty. They should have privately collected enough money for him to plead guilty. His conviction would have been a one-time back-page story with no impact on Satmar’s reputation. He could have gotten off with a 5 year plea bargain. After ~15% off for good behavior he would have been out in 4.25 years. If he had taken the deal when he was arrested in March 2011, he would have been out of jail less than three years from now. Instead he will probably get a sentence of 20-25 years and will be lucky not to get carried out of jail by the burial society.
Satmar opted for super-sized portions chutzpah on which they are now choking. Right now, Satmar is probably less popular than Congress. On the positive side, they are probably still more popular than Ebola, and only tied with Fidel Castro.
