You are correct if you have noted a recent reluctance on my part to comment on political matters as much. It is only partly fatigue from the election.
I follow the links on Maggie's and Insty, at Neo's site and Tigerhawk's and Carl's NOFP. Barely into the Obama presidency and the new congress, there is already a stunning array of lies, scandals, reversals, and pettiness. Others are outraged. I am numbed, seeing article after article of corruption, blatant pandering, evasion of responsibility - and all at a cost hitherto unimagined. His supporters seem to be retreating into an imaginary land: Well, the country needs to change. I think we can do it.
It's a slow-motion train wreck. What is there to say? I'm glad all those other guys are keeping up their work, to hasten the disillusionment before the deluge. But I simply shake my head.
