I was going to write a reasonably lengthy reply to a thread on John Scalzi’s site about the Republicans and their new “rock star”, but I gave up in the end. Too rambling, too all over the place (part of the problem with writing it after midnight), and probably too pointless pissed off as well.
I’m having my usual problem with this stuff again — I probably concern myself too much with it. It’s a real issue for the world, true, but at the same time, I don’t need it to get into my headspace, just like I didn’t need John Howard’s crap to get to me for years. Just another unnecessary distraction to me mentally — it’s not that I can’t think about it, but I have to think about it in a more mellow and abstract way, rather than allowing it to consume me.
Because I’ve got way too much to think about, as I keep mentioning here. And no sign of any of it changing any time soon.
