Work has been crushingly busy. I've been getting most of my news in soundbites and headlines. I imagine I'm getting the news that most people see, not the politically obsessed like all of us. That news is bad, bad, bad. What should be a great week for Romney has been one of the worst, thanks to the media. Generally speaking, I agree with Rob Long -- quit whining about media bias and deal with it. After this week, though, I want to take a baseball bat to most media outlets. And frankly, I don't know what to do about it. 98% of the people I encounter on a daily basis aren't old enough to vote, even if I could justify proselytizing on the job. Persuading people on the internet is the punchline to a bad joke. I just have to endure this endless parade of lies, straw men, and twisted narratives. Drusus Agonistes, indeed.
I'll still pull the lever, a meaningless gesture in my red, red state. Five cents, psychiatric help for this Charlie Brown. (Not really.)
