Astute question Dylan.  


Note that if the incessant political whining were to ever actually cease, John could face defeat and even disqualification from the regional Incessant Political Complaining competition, for failing to meet the “Incessant” requirement, explicitly spelled out in the rules.  Since his triumphs at the regionals in this sport, he was on his way up to the nationals, and perhaps even to the quadrennial International Incessant Political Complaining Olympics!  Disqualification at this stage would be tragic.
