Note to Main Street: Congress LOVES You

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Pundits are poking some fun at the surge of
political rhetoric these days.
Metaphors are rising to the surface as lawmakers make clear they
feel voter pain.
Debate over an economic rescue plan has been peppered with the
image of Main Street. It's come to connote Middle America, even
though the most common address in the country today is actually
Second Street. And most people long ago bailed out on neighborhoods
around Main Street in favor of the 'burbs and places like Hawthorne
Terrace in Sun Valley Estates.
Sarah Palin in the vice presidential debate referred to ``Main
Streeters like me.'' She also added her own down-home tribute to
``Joe Six Pack.''
