Fueled by new poll numbers showing Americans fed up with everything and everyone in public office, http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2010-03-31-1Apoll_N.htmCongress introduced a resolution this morning to change the name of the beloved cherry blossoms, now in peak season out there on the Mall.

From here on the flowers will be called

cheery blossoms.

Oh please.
