    Just a few minutes to shutdown and the Republicans have the ball...

    Washington (CNN) -- With the government shut down over a bitter partisan battle over the new health care law, the approval rating for Congress is plummeting to historic lows.

    And a CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday indicates that it's not just Congress and its top leaders making history for all the wrong reasons. It's also the tea party and the Democratic and Republican parties.

    According to the survey, just 10% of Americans say they approve of the job Congress is doing, an all-time low in a CNN poll. And 87% say they disapprove of the job federal lawmakers are doing, higher than it's ever been in CNN polling.

    The 10% approval rating in the new CNN survey, which was conducted Friday through Sunday, is down 10 percentage points from CNN's previous survey at the beginning of the month. The 87% disapproval rating is a jump of nine points from the first week in September.

    Um okay. Not exactly news that we think Congress sucks a fat one.

    It already did. They missed the deadline.

    Guess they finally did what they said they were going to do for once. Color me surprised.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Huh. I probably should have set the poll to stop accepting votes on Tuesday Morning. Whoops
