When I started Polinaut, we really wanted to shed some light on the blogosphere and the people in it. I’m glad we did, because everybody I’ve met, everybody I’ve read, has made for a very entertaining election season.
We get wrapped up in politics a lot. We think it’s life and death for us in the same way the Twins losing the playoffs is. Sometimes, it’s just a game. But that doesn’t stop us from projecting as ‘evil’ those with whom we politically disagree. We should catch ourselves doing that in the heat of the campaign because when all is said and done, we’re supposed to be united and when this election season is over, if we still view others as ‘evil,’ then nothing good can come of it, regardless of who wins the election.
The next person I meet in the blogosphere who actually is a first class jerk personally, will be the first one.
That’s a long-winded way of saying it would be good if we can think good thoughts for others during this “hair-trigger” stage of the campaign… even those with whom you may disagree politically.
