Not writing as much about politics?

I was over at Rob and Dana Greenlee’s to record Webtalk today and he asked why I wasn’t writing as much about politics lately. It’s simple: The Bush Administration is doing such a good job of damning itself these days that it would be redundant to point out their foibles as much as I have at other times.

The Bushies are like the mean old man down the block who yelled at anyone who walked by his house, everyone calls him a mean old bastard. But one day he wakes up mad as a hatter and stands in his yard stabbing himself in the head with his wife’s old knitting needles. You don’t feel angry anymore and don’t call him a mean old bastard; and in the case of Bush and cronies, it’s impossible not to feel sad about what they’ve done to the country and what the country is doing to itself.

  1. Mad as a hatter is right. Although I work in Lakewood now, at one point I did live in Crawford. I’ve drafted a letter withdrawing my name from consideration as the next Supreme Court Associate Justice, just in case. I have no legal experience, but you never know.
