Well, I have come to another lull in the posting. I will have to once again blame it on all the pent up emotions regarding the election. I need it to be over.
But as many have pointed out, Jon Stewart’s appearance on Crossfire was a moment of sheer joy for me. Time will tell if it made any difference, but there was an essential truth in the whole exchange. The volume knob of “debate” needs to be turned way down in this country, so the actual voices can be heard.
As it is, we have this din of primal grunting and shouting around the fire. It’s not helping. When we have polls showing 70% of people from Tennesee saying they are “very interested” in the election and then something like 75% of them not able to answer a simple quiz on which candidate supports what issue, we have a serious problem.
