Part of the June slack-off was due, to be sure, from our travels abroad. Part was, I think, the inevitable feeling of freedom that comes when school is out. The fact that this isn't actually a summer break for any of us is immaterial.
Part of it too though is that chronicling and analyzing the many robotic aspects of John McCain has begun to feel a bit like kicking a dog when its down. Staff shake ups, lame scandal responses, the fact that there is widespread agreement that the presidency is Obama's to lose, it's hard to make fun of a news story that portrays the McCain campaign in the most pathetic of terms.
So, I never thought I would say this, but I kind of feel bad. Robots, after all, need love too. That is, if they had the ability to experience any human emotion. (I even feel bad for that last swipe, although I guess Cindy can't express any human emotion on her face, so it evens out).
Where is the fire? Where is Karl Rove? I'm bored.
I will regret this post.
