Yeah, I know it's more than a bit silly to complain about the stresses of running this blog. It's a privilege to be compensated decently for the equivalent of ranting away on the street corner, and I certainly appreciate the support I've received from Chevron, The Bestest Oil Company Evah, and MSNBC, The Bestest Cable News Network Evah, but when the silly season arrives, as it has, it's a struggle to keep paying attention to all the nonsense. What I'd love to do is go take a nap for the next 6 days.

I suppose we should remember that all the stupid news that's going to come out over the next few days really doesn't matter. I'd like to be able to ignore it, but this blog has always been about seeing how politics is portrayed by the media. Maybe I'll ignore it all and go all wonky until the election.

Who's up for a brief Econ 101 course?
