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.
