Thoughts that just come to me...
Or "Is there anything left to talk about?"
Published on December 8, 2004 By Genghis Hank In Blogging
I don’t know what it is. Post-Election burnout? Emotional overload? Lack of anything compelling in the news? Maybe the Christmas season? Bah Humbug! Can’t be that.

Whatever it is, I just can’t find a thing to say about politics right now. Not current events either. I don’t even have any interest in commenting on someone else’s blog. I can’t stand to see news on TV now. It just seems like they keep talking about the same things anyway. Whenever they act like they are having discussions, they aren’t really. It’s just people talking at each other, not to each other. Is it burnout, or have we really already said everything there is to say for now? Or are we all just waiting for the other shoe to drop, whatever that may be?

Anyone else feeling this way?

I tend to avoid heated political debates anyways, so I can't say that I've noticed. But I have noticed a more general something or other that sort of sounds like what your describing. Personally I think everyone has gone mad. Which means those of us that were already crazy are now mostly sane

I have been into politics ever since the Carter/Ford election back in 76. To me the presidential campaign season is up there with the Olympic Games. I've gone into every election day with the same butterflies in my stomach morphing into vampire bats as the drama unfolded. The spectre of "bloodless coup", along with the rise and fall of "my guy" was what I lived for.

This year was different. There was just as much drama, just as much excitement, and I was just as involved as every other year, but my stomach came through this one without the winged wildlife.

What was the difference???

This was the first time I went through it all without a TV.

Sanity is just the majority opinion anyway. If everyone's gone mad, it's the sane thing to do!

You just might be on to something there. This is the first year I followed it heavly with the Internet along with the TV.

seems like things are generally gettin back to normal but there were a few weeks when i was tempted to title an article somehting like 'north korea says 'we goofed' and applies for statehood'  just for the fun of watching it too die without a response.

As a fellow crazy person, I can vouch for that one.

Still is for me. It is like a drug. I canont wait for the presidential campaign season, shoot up on all the news and blogs I can, and then detox afterwards. It is actually a let down and I cannot wait for my next fix.
