This whole campaign season is rather novel for me. If I turn on the news and there’s a Crossfire-style segment with pundits representing Obama versus Romney, I turn it off. If I click on to talk-radio and the discussion is defending Romney, I click it off. I see Romney giving a speech on tv, I turn it off just like I turn off Obama’s. This is a total reversal for me, after three decades as a political junkie.
During election cycles I’ve always had someone to root for each time, but this time, I can’t get myself the least bit invested in the proceedings. It all seems so pointless. The only thing left that manages to somewhat get my pulse-rate up is the potential of Tea Party type candidates to successfully oust the old-guard GOP-e into a well-earned oblivion.
You’ve got a great plan!
