It seems that my quest for some distance from blogging has finally caught up to me. I thought I would take the weekend off, then resume blogging at full steam yesterday, but I had other things on my mind; and it was nice not to have to think about politics as much as I normally do.
Does seem so people are so obsessed by it — that if they can’t talk about politics, they have nothing to say. (Saw someone just like that last night–even at a panel related to the entertainment industry, he kept turning it back to politics, blaming Bush for Obama’s spending binge.)
There are a number of issues I do wish to address, have yet to weigh in as I would like on the Romney campaign’s awkward handling of the Grenell matter, given that I’ve had time to reflect on it since the story broke. And there’s still much to consider related to the president’s recent fundraising plea directed to the gay community.
(I had actually thought this would be a longer post and I do hope to start blogging regularly again tomorrow, but just needed to take a break. I feel a bit like I used to feel after I ran road races, particularly half-marathons, felt a kind of exhilaration for my effort, had enjoyed the experience, but needed a few days before I could get back up my pre-race pace.)
