On politics

Well, deanites.org has been slowing down quite a bit. I just don't have the energy to write new stuff in there daily, and on top of that, news is just slowing down. Or maybe my interest in the news is. I can't bring myself to write daily updates on the "white house leak" now that the story's out there.

I don't want it to be another one of those blogs that just regurgitates the rest of the political blogs out there. I want to have a new take on the things that are happening out there, and that takes time and thought.

Most importantly, I find some of the ideologism (is that a word?) in other blogs to be... dangerous. And I want to fight that tendency with my website, to try to see both sides of the issue, when the opposing side exists. So often I'll read a blog and it'll be mindless attacks, as if it were written by Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly. And I'd prefer it if a moderate Republican could come along, read one of our blog sites, and instead of saying "Look at how one-sided their ideas are," say "Hmm, that's not a bad point. They're wrong, but I can see how they would think that."
