Where Was I?
So except for my recent Pope-fest post, it's been FIVE MONTHS since I've written on this heavily trafficked blog! ;) But where have I been?
Emotionally drained, that's where. That election hit me hard. Bush "won", my arch-nemesis David Vitter won a Senate seat (giving him MORE power), this total blow-hard Bobby Jindal won a seat in the House for my district. All bad, bad, DIRE news. At first I took it pretty well. I said, "Screw this, we'll just fight harder." But then I started noticing that no matter how hard you fight, there's always so many idiots out there willing to believe the bullshit Bush pumps out, there's always the right-wing media to grind your ass back into the mud, there's always politicians desperate to take away your rights.
This isn't a pep-talk. I'm still down about politics and about this country in general. I'm very worried and frightened. But I'm going to try and face it again, rather than spend five months shying away from anything political and especially my beloved blog (that no one reads...).
So that's where I've been. And in a delicious irony, yesterday and today, I've seen two of those Ad Council ads for registerandvote2004.org. A little late, are we?
