Astute Commentary From Lean Left
I was reading this over Lean Left
and it's right on target.
I just really hate the thought of listening to this crap for two full years, following on a year or more of the same leading up to the last election. Politicians have always jockeyed for position before elections, but in this case the official campaign has already started - Obama and Edwards have established formal exploratory committees, and Hillary has had hers up for months. They really are campaigning for the upcoming election before the prior election has ended - and I think it’s unprecedented for all the front-runners to do that. From this year forward, we will never be out of campaign season! God, what a depressing thought that is.
I agree but I couldn't put it this eloquently.
I've had political burnout recently. Other than some tongue in cheek stuff and an occasional shrine to Steve Cohen, there has been a shift here and I've gotten a bit more personal. Not meaning to say I won't shift back, but you know, the political mode is so 2008. And as the folks over at Lean Left
noticed quite astutely, they haven't even seated congress yet.
I'm going to find myself the latest Bigfoot news and go and finish my Neil Gaimon novel as I ponder all of this.
