About that event next November we’re not talking about…
Andrew spoke for all of us at Anchor Rising when he made a vow to not discuss a certain political event, and those who aim to be deeply involved in said event, until the actual event was much closer. It seems we are not alone. Here’s The Anchoress (no relation ;):
I resent like hell that these politicians – all of them, but I seem to recall it was Hillary who started early, forcing everyone else to do so, as well – began their stumping and fund-raising two years before an election. Some of them – like Clinton – barely finished their re-election celebrations before reaching out their hands for ‘08 campaign funds.
They’ve decided to be in our faces for an excessive period of time, and the acquiescent media is allowing it by covering their every belch and hiccup, but that doesn’t mean I have to read it and get sucked into a pre-election vortex that has no business forming just now. Our “public servants,” duly elected to represent their states, are running back and forth across the country giving speeches, eating festival food and raising money, money, money instead of attending to the concerns of their constituents, voting on pending legislation, FUNDING OUR TROOPS and otherwise doing what they were hired to do.
I’m not participating in this, yet. I’m not going to allow myself to be suckered into paying attention to these people – and giving them either my money or my time – before I deem it practical and intelligent to do so, and that will be sometime around November of ‘07.
So far, we’ve done a pretty good job of staying mum around here (though we’ve given our readers an opportunity to “weigh” in).
At first I thought it was something about bloggers who have an affinity with “anchor,” but other bloggers have put up their own “Protest Manifestos“. And there’s even a logo.
Maybe this could be the next, big blogger movement?
