There was this embarrassing period of time that happened back in 2004, but let's not talk about that. (Seriously, let's not.)
I kind of wish that my attention level for politics remained this high for the rest of the time, but it only really shows up this late in the game. It's not like I'm uninformed. It just means that competitions are fun and governing is hard, thankless work. Hard work is boring and depressing; Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair is instant hilarity.
Still, I love voting, man. There was a primary last week, and I went in after a bad day at work, but I came out of it feeling like a million bucks. Civic duty is like pure endorphins. Elections are great.*
