Getting to be the slow season.

You’d think that a major American holiday was approaching, or that it was the end of the year after a hard-fought political cycle.  Or something like that. Seriously, though, it was a stressful election cycle.  Even more than 2010 was, in some ways. At least in ’10 we had blown through our initial objectives early and were just trying to run up the score as much as we could; this go-round we were trying to hit victory conditions in the Senate that looked like they were just out of reach.

Turned out that they weren’t.

Anyway, now that LA’s done with I’m wondering whether to eve[n] [oops!] try to political blog until 2015. A lot of the next few weeks is likely to be highly stylized. I don’t know how many of the players will be taking all – or any – of it seriously, so I don’t know how much *I* should. Something to think about, I guess…

  1. Last paragraph appears to contain a typo in the first sentence? “..Whether to ever try…” should be “… to even try…”, I guess? Only way I can make sense of it, but I don’t get paid to write, so maybe I’m missing something!

  2. Moe, be the iconoclast. Do what makes you happy.
    As site policy, it’s served you well, no?

  3. Moe,
    Just remember that Barak Hussein Obama, a./k./a. the emperor, is the gift that keeps on giving for Rebublican partisans. Do you really think that he will let the next few days go by without more constitutional atrocities (sp?)? You will just be more iritated if you swear off political blogging and he forces you to do it anyway.

  4. what are our alternatives? the average political site telling us that we should talk endlessly about the latest example of white oppression? Hell, the way the “news media” is going, and the nation of “social media consumers” are following, pointless inside the beltway machinations would be seen as a reprieve to some of us.

  5. Well I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve left a message on Speaker Boehner’s answering machine telling him that he needs to stop Obama’s executive amnesty even if that means shutting down the government.

    I essentially said he took an oath to protect the constitution, and his oath is more important than opinion polls, or what the chamber of commerce wants.
