This post by the Anchoress about why she has grown weary of the current political debate and stopped writing begins like this:
"But really, I’m not writing because…well, it’s all beginning to feel a little futile, isn’t it? The daily grind of news is essentially the same. Bush is an antiquated manly sort who is also bad, evil, incompetent, hitler, a terrorist etc, etc. How will Democrats regain power (without resorting to buying votes or engaging in detectable fraud) - because nothing in the world will be right until they do? Iraq is (is not) in civil war. It’s not, really, but we want to report that it is, and so “truthiness” is the order of the day. The economy - near full employment with the strongest job market in years - is terrible."
Did her words pull you in and make you want to read more of her post? It did me.
