I'm very actively not giving a shit about any of the legacy party candidates on offer, or likely to be on offer. Even if Joan Walsh has already made her preferences known.
And it's still 2011. It's like the Xmas muzak started in the stores not after Halloween, but right after the previous New Year's.
Of course, both parties will endeavor to make me give a shit -- the Rs by becoming nuttier, and the Ds by saying ZOMG! Look how nutty they are! But I'm tired of being blackmailed. Fuck that, and Fuck them.
So it's extremely unlikely I'll be able to write on the horse race, except to mock it for being the shambles it is. Not to say there won't be other more interesting forms of politics, since there certainly will be!
NOTE Went to a leftie festival the other day, and picked up some literature at the Green's table, including a newspaper. Started reading it on the way home, and the stories seemed a little familiar, then overly familiar.... And when I checked the date, the paper was printed in 2006. Yes, that was the promotional material. C'mon, guys. Goddammit.
UPDATE I know this isn't the best post EVAH... But the feeling of not giving a shit about a Presidential race is new to me. It's very odd.
