Greetings from the plague pit.

I’m fairly certain that every single member of my family is currently down with a different disease or injury.  My wife’s stuffed up, my elder kid’s coughing, my younger kid’s grouchy and off his feed, and I apparently have tendinitis.  Heck, even the cat’s got something weird going on with his kidney function.

Hence the quarantine sign on the door (no, I didn’t put a quarantine sign on the door). Personally, I’d like to lie about and be wretched, but somebody’s got to get the groceries and whatnot, and apparently I can deal with my condition well enough with a variety of pills.  Whine whine whine, moan moan, complain complain, whine…

QotD, Lamenting Democrats edition.

(Via Hot Air Headlines) House Democrats are not handling their recent spanking well.  They’re especially distraught over losing control of the House in such an insanely short time:

“We only had it for four years,” one senior Democrat lamented. “It took so long to get it back, and now it is all gone.”

Well, that’s what happens when politicians run as moderates and rule as liberals, Sparky.  This is also what happens when a political party lets itself be run by its liberal fringe on the legislative level and by a feckless dilettante on the executive.  And, finally, this is what happens when politicians ignore necessary business in order to pass ideological wish lists – then inform the American people that it’s all for their own good, so don’t worry their pretty little heads over it.  And what are the consequences of all of that?  The political party guilty of such behaviors gets promptly backhanded by the American people.  As we saw.

Learn or don’t learn, as you blessed well please – but do not whine about it.  It’s unbecoming.
