    The repubs are very good at negative campaigns, but not so good at governing!!!

      i know that in the interest of being on top of party rhetoric and media coverage / spin, i should watch the g.o.p. convention. but i just can't do it.

        ...for feeling the same way. Knowing that others feel the same way has given me the courage to out myself.

          i'll probably check in for 5 or 10 minute chunks here and there--can't completely shut it out--but i just don't have it in me to track along closely.

          i know they're going to lie, i know they're going to blow dog whistles of varying pitches, i know they're going to nine-eleven up the wazoo.

          in fact, that's all they've got. what real, compelling, worty-of-consideration policy initiatives are going to come to light during their  convention? jack squat. it's going to be a hate-for-all. i'm going to be very, very grateful to/for all those that do have the appetite for it, and the capacity to break it all down.
