Back online

Well, I can’t say I had any epiphanies while I was gone, but I think I benefited from taking a step back.  I enjoy blogging, but sometimes it just feels like another thing on the to-do list.  There have been some horrific stories in the news, and I can’t imagine what I could have said that would have been meaningful.

The details are a little up in the air, but I’ve been invited to post several times over the next month as one of a group of political bloggers at Gather.com.  Gather seems to be something of a cross between a social networking site and a set of community blogs.  I’ll let you know when things firm up.  In the meanwhile, tomorrow (e.g. Thursday), their front page poll question is going to be who do you think is going to win the Virginia Senate race, Allen or Webb.  At this point, I think it’s probably too close to call — Allen is still ahead in the last set of polls, but Webb has momentum and finally enough money to get on TV.

    Welcome back! I think that Webb could win. In general around the country, anti-Republican sentiment is growing. This Foley thing is only adding fuel to the fire.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for Webb, even though I live in Maryland.

    I think Allen will win, but not by a large margin, and that he is utterly finished as a possible for President. And, that’s a pretty good outcome, given that this is Virginia, which last gave its electoral votes to a Dem when that Dem was Lyndon Johnson.

    it’s worth noting that the macaca business has seriously angered Virginia’s Indian community, and this has continued consequences:
