Gutless wonder

I don’t think I’m going to have the fortitude to watch the Republican Convention. I know that makes me a small person, but I just can’t take it.

But reading the bloggery about it is a different matter. For example, Jay Rosen is nailing down ideas like a cabinet maker. And here’s Ken Mehlman – a guy who “gets” the Net as far as I can tell – spinning the Kerry campaign as Rip van Winkely. And Oxblog on the Log Cabin Republicans’ party (and on a talk with Koch). And here’s a photo of Ari “Shameless” Fleischer holding a Blogs for Bush bumpersticker.

But watch the gloat-fest on TV? I just can’t.

  1. I know how you feel. And I know that it is an info-mercial (just like the DNR was).

    But I continue to feel the duty to listen. I worry about: 1) how 50% of the country believes what it does and 2) my own sanity.

    I keep saying: res ipsa loquitor, and really don’t get much further. “Don’t you SEE it?!”

    It would be interesting to know, not ‘Bush or Kerry?’, but how important compared to most elections: 1) yawn, 2) somewhat of relevance 3) the future of democracy?

  3. Having worked one I can’t stomach watching either poltical convention. They are very well programmed events, with much sound and fury signifying, well politics as usual. At least the Libertarian one, usually shown on CSPAN is entertaining.

  4. It was a lot of fun, guys. I’ve really taken to blogging lately. It’s almost like my next book is wiriting itself.
