System Check: Politics

The Whatever continues its dearth of political commentary these days, mostly because I still have the urge to jam a stick into my eye whenever I start to write about it. Just tried to write something about the Iraq funding bill the president just signed; blatted out some verbiage, looked at it, and decided that its real value was therapeutic rather than being of readable quality. Deleted it; it’s gone, you won’t miss it.

It’s not that I’m feeling apolitical, mind you. I’m just not seeing myself adding anything particularly interesting to the discussion. Of course, part of the problem is a vague feeling I should add something substantive; maybe I should just go for the snark. Three sentences and out. That’s always fun. I’ll have to think about that.
