My Bizarro World post from last night generated some great comments, but it's quickly rolling off of the screen. Such is the nature of active blogs. So I thought I'd post a few quick links for any other "free thinkers" who are in a similar state of mental unrest.
Bob Harris over at This Modern World (with Tom Tomorrow) has an absolutely wonderful blog entry, which very articulately consolidates some of my thoughts from the past week (particularly my 'big bang' theory).
Backslider, a frequent commenter @ Eschaton (and author of his own thoughtful blog, Backslider's Wine), had a great conversation with his brother -- the kind that only two intelligent siblings can have in the comfort of a stable relationship. Kind of a how-the-fuck-did-we-get-into-this-mess sort of discussion. Superb reading.
Liz and Patricia over at Blondesense have been melting the paint off the wall over the past few days with the same-vein thoughts as mine. I can't point to one particular post, because each is so well focused on the "is this what we've become??" theme.
There's a little more than six weeks left before the election. Things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get better for us political obsessives. Stock up on the Prozac™ and Jagermeister.
