Who’s a zombie? I am, I am

I am sick with allergies that started a head cold that eventually turned into full-blown achy, moaning, zombiefied foot-dragging slouching through the apartment for the past two days. 

 This made me sicker:

“What’s most troubling about Senator Reid’s comments yesterday is his defeatism,” Mr. Cheney said. “It is cynical to declare that the war is lost because you believe it gives you political advantage. Leaders should make decisions based on the security interests of our country, not on the interests of their political party.”

Cheney has always tried to make Democrats seem unpatriotic and “negative” about the war, mired in defeatism, from the beginning.  It’s an old tactic that some people let fool them for the first few years of the war, but not many do now, Dick.  Get a new line of argument, one that actually speaks to the issues, instead of trying once again to make your opponents seem un-American when in fact they’re only doing the job the people hired them for when they turned control of congress over to them again.  Cheney should remember he’s in the service of the people, too, and the majority of us want this finished.

Now, back to dragging my foot behind me and moaning.
