Big babies

The Republican Congress, about to lose its majority, is leaving power acting like a bunch of spoiled brats.

AP is reporting that the current Congress is deliberately leaving a half trillion dollars of spending bills undone in the current session so the Democrats will be bogged down with them when they take control in January and have to devote time and energy to them instead of their own priorities.

You should try skipping out of work sometime without doing the job you're supposed to - see how well that would go over.

Meanwhile, a Democratic staffer on the House intelligence committee has been cleared of any wrongdoing after being accused of leaking a document to the New York Times, and has been reinstated to his position. An inquiry found that the charge against him was basically a fraud, retaliation from the Republican chairman of the committee to punish a Democratic member who had offended him.

It's really unbelievable. These are supposedly serious people, legislating life and death issues and doing the nation's business, but they're basically seventh graders having a hissy fit.
