I have a strong distaste for clowns, circuses, rodeos, traveling-shows and hucksters. And yet, every 4 years I succumb to the biggest and most transparent sideshow around--the U.S. Presidential election. I know better, I really do. And yet, I am drawn to it, as one would be to a forest fire, tornado, flood or other unfolding disaster. In light of this affliction, I remain resolute in my determination NOT to blog on 2008 politics until after the election. But I find myself distracted by all the political noise and have difficulty writing of anything else. Time is the only cure. In another month and 2 days, I should start the recovery process, and regular blogging should resume. In the meantime, I had better start getting ready for tonight's Vice-Presidential debate.
