Political Geekery, Neatly Mapped [9/04/2008 04:09:00 PM]:
I've been somewhat out of the political realm the past few years, after diving head-on into it back in 2001 or so; when my daughter came into my life, I simultaneously realized I needed to quit worrying about this shit quite so much and
that I really, truly enjoy the music side of things more than the political. The Kid and Good Tunes are a hell
of a lot more fulfilling than Political Wonkery. Plus, they have the added advantage of making me feel good
, which politics almost never has. I mean, even on a good
day, I still walk away feeling dirty & disillusioned.
That said, I do still love to indulge my armchair politico-geek. And right now, the awesome-awesome Electoral-vote.com site has me giggling like a GOP staffer watching Ann Coulter. It's very cool, a nicely-done encapsulation of the state of all the major races in the country, plus good links & some nice political musings, to boot. My grungy baseball cap's off to the anonymous(?) Votemaster for all his/her hard work...
