Dearth of Political Ranting (Here)

It just occured to me that I haven’t written an explicitly politics-oriented entry on the Whatever since mid-January, when I compared Digital Rights Management to Guantanamo. The toothache entry gets political in the comments, to some extent, but I didn’t start that. It’s not like there’s not political stuff to write about. I think it’s because I’m in some sort of refractory period about politics right now, dating back from the last election, because if you look I haven’t really written much about politics since then; a bit here, a snark there, but really nothing of any substance. That’s because every once in a while I’ll see some political-oriented thing that looks like it could be worth writing about, and I’ll fire up the blog software and then… eh. It’s just not happening.

I don’t think this is a particularly bad thing. I enjoy winding myself up about political topics; it’s cathartic. But one of the nice things about this site being about whatever I want it is that I don’t have to write about whatever I don’t want, too. This is one of the reasons that I run the site like I do. It fits my attention span, or lack thereof. That said, it was a little bit surprising to me when I realized just how little I’ve been blathering about politics recently. I’m sure I’ll come back to it at some point. But at the moment I’m apparently not missing it much.
