JOHN PODHORETZ WRITES:
Has there ever, ever, ever been an election as exciting as this one?
The answer, after some consideration, is: No way, not by a long shot. . . .
Most exciting and most addicting are the blogs — the citizen-journalist news sites. They offer campaign coverage of the highest order, from viewpoints spanning the political spectrum. So when I'm awake in the middle of the night taking care of a baby, I can surf Web sites to see the latest polling — and then do so again five hours later, and again every hour after that.
I think by the time this is over I'll have had all the excitement I want.
UPDATE: A reader emails asking if the above means I'm planning to quit. No, not anytime soon. But I started this blog with the intent of dealing with, um, less intense issues, and I'll be glad to see the election end. I realize that there will still be lots of stuff to worry about, but still. As Steven den Beste wrote, I was tired of this election in November of 2003.
