politics, as usual

Comedian Janeane Garofalo was quoted saying that “being a Republican this year is more than a difference of opinion—it’s a character flaw.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.

I should mention that I don’t normally talk politics. In fact, I don’t normally even make my politics known. Occasionally I will do so with like-minded people, but even that’s pretty rare because I don’t ever bring the subject up. So, it kind of has to present itself.

The reason I don’t talk politics with non-like-minded people is that I’m not going to change their opinion and they’re not going to change mine, so what’s the point in discussing anything? I’m not one to argue just for the sake of arguing. I can find better things to do with my time (like pontificate on my blog, for example).

It is interesting that I don’t seem to have any problem discussing politics on my blog. Of course it could have something to do with my audience (you know, all six of them). For many of my readers, I’m preaching to the choir. For the others, I guess you’re learning something new about me, eh? Don’t agree with me? Get your own blog.
