Becky notes that most of the readers of my blog are detractors of GWB and are eager to see him voted out of office on November 2. Among the people that I know who read my blog, this is certainly true. Even my critics seem to be pretty set in their opinions, and the things I write here aren’t likely to change their minds. Perhaps there are great cadres of undecided voters who are reading, but I doubt it.
Thus, I have decided to try to turn down the politics here and channel my political energies into more productive avenues for the next 9 weeks. I’m planning to put some time in with Democracy for America and with the Kerry campaign. Hopefully I can be involved in some efforts locally, as well as some efforts (online, hopefully) which might impact states more likely to turn blue in November.
In case I’ve left any doubt, let me be clear: I think George W. Bush is a horrible president. As John Scalzi once said (I’m paraphrasing), the USA has had some really awful presidents (e.g. Harding), so Bush may not be the worst ever, but he’ll be hard to beat as the worst president of the twenty-first century. Vote him out.
