You would scarcely know that anything is happening in the world other than our election politics if you get your news from the American media. It strikes me as lazy and provincial on the part of our editors and reporters — so what else is new?
In this presidential race, every hemi-demi-semi-quaver spoken, every blink blinked, by the candidates is analyzed to the subatomic level, from every perspective. Unless I have something to add, I plan to blog mainly about other stuff that strikes me as interesting or important. The rest of the world doesn't sleep while we go through our bizarre election rituals.
