It's been a while since we've done this. Congress, as a whole, has universal disapproval, but people usually like their member. What say you, Atlas?
I approve of Steve Cohen (D) TN-9.

Louise Slaughter does absolutely nothing for my part of the district so I disapprove of her, even though I generally agree with many of her political positions.

It seems like Lief's posts sometimes have a sexual tint to them. I've definitely seen references to spanking more than once.

My home district's two most recent representatives have both been great, in my opinion.

Current - Bill Owens (D, NY-23) - Approve (and highly disapprove of his most likely Republican challengers - Matt Doheny, Doug Hoffman, Will Barclay)

Former - John McHugh (R, 1993-2009) - Approve

I spend a lot of my time in Hochul's district; I suppose that I approve of her, too, though I don't pay as much attention to what she's doing.

EDIT: Forgot to mention Sherwood Boehlert (R), whose district I lived in for a short time. Also approve.

Approve of John Olver. Approve of Richard Neal, whose district I seem increasingly likely to end up in come next year.

Earl Blumenauer isn't too bad. He could be a little more vocal (think Alan Grayson/Anthony Weiner) if you ask me.

I'd vote for her over Joe the Plummer but vote for Rob Frost over her.

Doc Hastings - big HP, hopefully will retire soon. Maybe my district will be Hispanic enough for a democrat to win in an open race.

I'm not American, but words cannot express how big of a waste of sperm and huge sack of crap my MP is. Disapproving would probably be too nice.

Disapprove.  She represents a true swing district, but Rep. Herrera-Beutler has been a rubber stamp for the House GOP.

At home, I generally approve of Rick Larsen, as much as you can for Democrats around here. Here in Eastern Washington, McMorris Rodgers is ok, but it's hard to approve of a block-voting Republican.
