This is how I often think about the current crop of Congressmen - they impress me as a bunch of whiny pre-adolescents, who throw tantrums when they don't get their way. I see precious little difference in attitude between a 6-year old who won't take his bath until mommy gives him another cookie, and this group of idiots who won't raise the debt ceiling (to allow us to continue paying off the debt that THEY ran up!) until we give them everything they want.
One critical difference, though - when they throw their tantrums and stamp their little feet and hold their breath, WE turn blue! ... or is it red?
