I was taking a break from binge-watching the election coverage about ten days ago, enjoying the delicious middle of the latest Project Runway show … fringe, bias binding, ripping things apart at the seams … when the news came over my Democratic Underground Latest Thread page that the FBI had reopened their investigation into Hillary Clinton. I turned to MSNBC and pretty much lived there until her concession call last night.
It’s high time I write something – anything – to keep this journal alive and eventually have something to offer the mobs of people when they finally find me and come to read. I have been starting and abandoning many different topics these last few weeks … mostly because of the nasty politics that are currently consuming me. I am becoming addicted, bewitched, bothered.
Sure, other things are sometimes on my mind, and I am actually doing many physical things when I’m not sitting on the couch reading or watching news of the presidential race. But from dinner until well into the night, I tape and review shows on MSNBC, CNN, and even Fox with my lefty-leaning friends like Rachel and Joy and Steve and now especially Chris and John. I follow some of them on Twitter and I’m only one step away from abandoning all pretense of passivity and just diving in and trying to persuade readers and listeners to avoid voting for Donald Trump, at all costs.
