Even a congressional super committee might not be able to save Congress from its archenemy: the disappointed American people.

“Will the Supercommittee save Congress from Congress’ archenemy: the American people?”

The debt ceiling debacle's first act is now over and we can look forward to the second part with the rise of the super committee.

Our heroes include: “The Senator Drone,” (Sen. Reid) who will “talk to you about things for a long time,” “Professor Kvetch,” Jon Kyl as "The Trickler" (his golden stream shielding the rich), (Sen. Charles Schumer) “drowning out opponents with his supersonic whine,” and “Old-Man Man” (Sen. John McCain), the guy who's lawn you must not tread upon.

Can you help us out?
