I'm not sure why, but I just haven't seen much over the past couple of weeks that I felt like writing about. Maybe it is the summer, but so much of what is going on in the world seems to be simply a rerun of shows we've already watched...

The Democrats are screaming for Gonzales to be indicted or fired. More American soldiers die in Iraq, with precious little to show for their sacrifice. The stock market goes up, the stock market goes down. Another former CEO goes to jail. More professional athletes are shown to be beneath contempt. Bush seems to be doing nothing but biding his time, waiting for his term to end. The Democratic candidates for President alternate between insulting Bush and insulting each other. There's yet another media semi-scandal, as yet another liberal writer made up things that reflect badly on things liberals don't like. There's yet another story about yet another aspect of Pat Tillman's unfortunate death. The Democrats in Congress have yet again shown they're more serious about fighting Bush than fighting terrorists. Another Democrat claims criticism of her is tantamount to questioning her patriotism. Yet another federal agency shows itself to be unable to get its act together. Congress passes yet another lard-laden farm bill, while yet another Congressman announces that Congress will look into yet another issue that they really don't have any business looking into.

And as everything is 'been there, seen that', what is there to say? Those who insist on hitting the keyboard can simply recycle their posts from the last time they wrote on the subject du jour. Change a name here, a little else there, and, presto, they've ready to post. And, in all likelihood, with as little impact as they had the first, second, third and thirtieth time they wrote on that particular topic...

I'll save my fingers.
