At least my blog is still here. To the one or two people who still check this please accept my apologies, but quite frankly blogging is (and perhaps should be) one of my lowest priorities.
I'm still a news and political junkie, and could've been blogging my fingers off if I had a bit more free time, but the shift in focus has benefited me, a lot. Beginning in a few weeks I'll have more free time, and may continue to blog again regularly. We'll see.
Until then, here's a quote that just hit the nail on its fuckin head:
If you're an Obama supporter who gets frustrated that people still believe he's Muslim or won't put his hand on his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance, you should understand the frustration that Palin supporters feel when this slime is taken at face value.That's a very polite way to put it.
Another one. In comments to Megan McArdle's post on the 'bailout' and metaphors:
If you cannot explain in clear English exactly what all the salient questions and facts are about the bailout... then don't ask for seven hundred billion dollars.
