Why I haven't been talking about the elections

'Cause it's just too horrifying. I remain deeply pessimistic the outcome. First, I'm not at all convinced that the polls can be trusted. And second, even if they can be, I think that election fraud is gonna negate any advantage the Dems have. Sure, I don't doubt that they'll pick up a few seats, but I don't think it's gonna be enough. And the downward spiral will continue.

I'd love to be pleasantly surprised, of course. But I remember how optimistic I felt in 04, and how awful it felt to have that faint beam of light abruptly snuffed out. So I'm not getting my hopes up.
