America's worst brand: Congress

I usually try to avoid politics here, but just can't resist. One of the discussions I'm following on LinkedIn concerns unique brands - the ones that stand out - good or bad. Today's anti-climactic news of the failure of the so-called congressional "super committee" to reach an agreement on a deficit reduction plan is one for the "bad brands" column, for sure. The United States congress has a lower approval rating than even the IRS! Now that's a bad brand.
