Sheesh... maybe I ought to sweep this place out and clear out a few of the cobwebs...
When you're busy with real life, your InterTubes time is limited and you have no television it gets kind of hard to follow current events, which is why I haven't been commenting on same regardless of the rich material out there (Shotgun Dick claiming waterboarding is no big deal just being one... just "dunking people in water", after all. Maybe he'd like to talk to the ghost of Pol Pot about that one.)
Which makes me more understanding in this unfortunate election season of those who vote on the basis of a candidate's really impressive commercial. Not that I defend it, but it's apparent WHY it happens. How can we expect people to cast informed votes when the crap economy continues to drive people to exhaustion, and they end up perfectly understandably disinclined to spend their few free hours reading policy statements?
(Silly radical that I am, I'd suggest we need to change our economic system and economic priorities. Take some of the survival pressure off of people and allow them the space and time to become more politically aware. But what do I know, right?)
