“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation” -James Madison

Why bother?

Consider the most burning news stories of the last few months:

Anna Nicole Smith - the entire tawdry tale, not just the death thing (and was anyone REALLY surprised she died young and high?).

Imus, who has ALWAYS sounded like a mean drunk at the end of his fourth day on the wagon.

Early presidential campaigns in general; specifically, the current gaggle of no-account losers on both sides.

The drive-by media's breathless scorekeeping of said campaigns via fundraising numbers, which theoretically should be irrelevant and SMALL given the so-called restraints of the so-called Campaign Finance Reform era.

The ongoing Plamegate whatever thing that seems to have Capitol Hill in an uproar but no one else outside of party hacks really knows what went down, much less cares.

Tussles over troop funding and timetables and withdrawal dates.
Sorry, y'all....I really have nothing to talk or write about in terms of political commentary and current events. I suppose I should probably crank out some piece on political or conservative philosophy, but nothing is really inspiring me at the moment on this front.

Real life is far more important and entertaining right now, so check back in a few weeks/months when the presidential stuff has crystallized a bit, and/or I get inspired or fed up enough to be another internet crank again.....
