A Brief Respite, an Easy Prediction

We can all get a break from suffering in the crossfire of the slings and arrows of the Republican primary battles. I think they damaged each other fairly permanently. The media atmosphere will be easier to breathe for a while until they all band together to do their best to damage Obama.

I’m going to start posting some of my thoughts. Pretty obviously, that’s what a blog’s for. I’ve been reluctant due to my doubts that the world needs any more punditry, especially from amateurs.
