'I want to go home.'11:09 AM, Dec 15, 2014 • By DANIEL HALPER
The top Democrat in the Senate, Harry Reid, admitted today that he hasn't slept at home since May. The admission comes the same week Reid is beginning to plot his 2016 reelection.
"I hope that everyone understands so that we can move forward," Reid said on the Senate floor. "But we're going to have to be here until we finish our work, whether that's Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. So everyone should understand you can't be leaving.
"I know we all have things to do. I haven't been home, Mr. President, in such a long time. And I want go home. I bought a new home there, as everyone knows. I sold my place in Searchlight. I have a home in the greater Las Vegas area. I'd like to be able to see the home. I have not slept in it. We bought it in may. I have not been there."

In times past, government "service" was the career choice for people who didn't really believe in fun. Or had never had much practice at it, anyway. The federal bureaucrat, back then, dressed gray and thought in columns of figures. The kind with many, many zeroes. Washington, D.C., in those days, was a dreary town famously described by John F. Kennedy as a place of "Northern charm and Southern efficiency."
