There was a time in the long ago past that we did Open Threads. Basically opening the floor to whatever you wanted to talk about in the comment section.
I have a lot of topics on my plate, but every now and then you need to stop and pause.
Tonight is one of those nights. And anyway, you probably are Sick and Tired of Blogger Burnout Stories:
Okay, blogging is tough. We get it. Great Grandma and Grandpa had it easy, with rotary phones and all (“You mean your Great Grandparents had a phone?”).
If I hear another blogger complain about blogger burnout, I’m going to scream….
Let me guess, you worked the fields all day, so you don’t have the strength to push down on the keyboard with your bloodied, swollen fingers?
What’s next, a co-blogger to ease the burden of cutting and pasting cut-and-pasted blog posts from other similarly exhausted bloggers?
Haven’t you figured it out, there is only one original blog post which, like the source yeast at the Guinness brewery, has been kept alive for generations so that others may cut from and paste to it.
It’s not rocket science.
I’ll leave you with this passage from the very first Legal Insurrection post, on October 12, 2008, Obama is “Door No. 2”:
Obama may be a post-racial healer, or he may be someone who carefully uses race and false accusations of racism to advance his political career. Obama may not have known about Jeremiah Wright’s political race-baiting, or he may have known but not cared. Obama may be someone who views this country as inherently good, or he may secretly share the views of his political enabler, William Ayers, that this country is inherently bad. We may know Obama better than Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers know Obama, or we may not know Obama at all.
Seems relevant now that #Obamagate is in the news.
#Obamagate is simply Obama being Obama.
