Blog Report: Politics

With the overlong election campaign at last over, let me suggest that readers of political blogs move to lit-blogs instead.

Aren't people sick of politics? Disgusted nauseated hospital emergency room traumatized?

We've had politics shoved down our throats and slammed over our heads. The perpetual propaganda campaign only demonstrated the utter bankruptcy of our political system and the total blundering mediocrity of those who front it. Hundreds of political bloggers have engaged in hosannas of hype about shitty trivialities of difference between two monopolistic "parties" which aren't very different at all, merely two styles of hogs at the trough. Pseudo-Conservative Weekly Standard or phony-Leftist Wonkette are able to generate interest in this ludicrous sideshow as they hungrily push for their own places in the mud. Enough!

I invite folks to find meaning in literature and art, the greatest truth.

I'd vote for you -- if you ever had the courage and will to run for office. ;-)

The Cliche you have heard for the last three years is how different our World is because of 9-11, and yet that is not reflected by our writers.

Franzen writes another dull irrelevant story that could have been written in the 1980s or the 1890s. O' Distraught Family.
