A friend asked why I'm not blogging much about politics these days. It's mostly because I find the present presidential campaign utterly dispiriting. It's a daily contest to see who can sling the most mud on the most trivial matter. Our country faces incredible challenges, and these guys are pissing away at each other over stuff that just doesn't matter ion the greater scheme of things.
I go back and forth on whether I find Obama and Romney more loathsome. All I do know is that it's a pity they can't both lose.
All of which goes to why I'm only blogging about the campaign, for the most part, when it impinges on an area of professional interest (as some of the Bain Capital stuff did, until Obama went off the rails and starting throwing around felony charges).
OTOH, my Twitter feed does tend to be more political, so you can always follow me there.
