I’m tired of reading those polls telling us how all the Republicans in the field are doing against each other.
First of all, we may not even have the full field yet. Second of all, the lesser-known names on the list have not built up their constituencies yet. Third of all, all sorts of things will change and change and change. And fourth of all, there are so many entrants that even the so-called front-runners (Romney at present) don’t have anywhere near a majority.
It’s just so much blah-blah-blah at this point, even more than usual. But what else are pundits to do in a slow season?
I’m always kind of glad when the news is slow, even though it gives me less to think about and less to write about. But slow news is good news most of the time, because most news is not of the feel-good variety. What’s more, New England has finally decided to stop pretending it’s Seattle in the winter and has started impersonating North Carolina in the spring. We’ve got a three-day weekend coming; let’s hear it for slow news and fine weather!
