It's kind of nice to have very little idea of what's going on in the outside world. I will stay out of it, for the most part. You don't want to hear about the endless Sarko chronicles.
But, I do want to say how incredible it is that the Democrats have actually seemed to figured out how to lose to a boring old fart who nobody really wants after 8 years of Bush and in the middle of an unpopular war. It's inspiring in a strange way. I really think they'll pull it off and lose again. Just wow.
