On the House floor yesterday afternoon, Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) unveiled what some are describing as the “worst” visual chart to ever grace the legislative body.
As flagged by Politico’s Seung Min Kim, Rep. Pocan was seen doodling on his favorite white flipchart about something or other:
What even is this? To the casual viewer, it might look like a chart about some World Trade Center conspiracy theory. Or perhaps a child’s drawing of his/her family via the use of large blocks instead of people.
But no, this chart is meant to illustrate Pocan’s big concern: Income disparity in America.
The Democratic congressman probably would have been better served to have an intern go to Kinkos and print up a nice glossy chart with the same figures, but hey, “A” for effort perhaps? We all know art is hard.
