I was reading over my RSS feed for politics, and I spotted an interesting pattern. There were articles about McCain and Obama talking about the economy and their plans to fix it, and articles about Congress being unable to agree on a way to deal with high gas prices, and then there was "Bush says Iran can't be trusted with enrichment."
I'm sorry, but honestly... who the fuck cares about Iran right now? Stop trying to beat the drums for another war, or even economic sanctions, against a country that is about as big a threat to us now and in the near future as, say, Iraq was. It's pathetic that even in the last, lame duck months of his Presidency, Bush and his administration continue to be completely and wholly out of step with what the American people care about, instead trying desperately to ram their agenda down the public's throats.
On a semi-related topic... anybody got any good political RSS feeds to recommend? I've got a small spread of stuff, but mostly I find interesting political articles through links from John Rogers or Rolling Stone politics. I subscribed to Huffington for about a day, until I realized that when I left my computer and came back, there were about a hundred unread posts. I don't have that kind of time. I need something that updates maybe a half-dozen, dozen times in a day at most. An item every couple of days, especially if it's good, is even better. I'm also looking for something with a bit of wit to it. Suggestions?
