Sen. Lindsey Graham is so embarrassed about the 9 percent approval rating — released Tuesday night in a New York Times/CBS poll — that he’s going incognito.
“It’s so bad sometimes I tell people I’m a lawyer,” the South Carolina Republican told POLITICO on Wednesday. “I don’t want to be associated with a body that in the eyes of your fellow citizens seems to be dysfunctional. It matters to me.”
“We’re below sharks and contract killers,” added freshman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).
Indeed, lawmakers themselves aren’t among the 9 percent who approve of their own work.
