Right Whingers


whinge Pronunciation (hwinj, winj) intr.v. whinged, whing·ing, whing·es Chiefly British
To complain or protest, especially in an annoying or persistent manner.

It came to me tonight in a flash: the Right Wing in this country is a bunch of whiners. They control every branch of government; most of the media; most of the business establishment; and pretty much everything except a few colleges and universties and the Unitarians. But they still whine about how they're so oppressed, and how they're being picked on.

The Brits have a great version of "whine" for this: "whinge". Let's call them Right Whingers from now on.

This is your Modest Proposal for the day.
