For the past couple of weeks, almost every blogger I know has covered the events unfolding in Wisconsin. Some in great detail, some in a more general sense. So what's with the lack of coverage in this little corner of the blogosphere? I mean, with all that is going on in Wisconsin and nationally, this should be a blogger's paradise! Why the silence here?
I'm not really sure, except to say that I'm sick of it all. I'm tired of every entry on my facebook page talking about it. I'm sick of turning on the TV and stories about what's happening in Wisconsin are headlining both the local and national news. The opposition to Governor Walker's budget repair bill has reached new lows. The protesters are getting downright dangerous. For God's sakes - we even have members of the legislature threatening death to a colleague. The Fugitive 14 are still acting like children. I still can't help but ask the question - what are they hoping to accomplish?
Seriously - get your asses back to work. If this bill and this budget are as detrimental as you say it is, it will fail miserably, chaos will ensue, Wisconsin will implode and fall off the face of the earth, and you can all pat yourselves on the back for being so wise.
In any event, I've had about enough. If that relegates me to the status of "not so serious" or "irrelevant" blogger so be it. This whole ugly situation has done something I really didn't think possible. I've lost my passion for politics.
Now, to be sure, this could be due in part to various goings on in my personal life. I've been focusing on some things that have taken up much of my time and are of a rather serious nature. I'm really hoping that this apathy is a temporary condition. It's gotten to the point that except for the fact that I promised a good friend a ride, I wouldn't even go to Drinking Right next week - I'm THAT sick of hearing/talking about the political goings on right now.
