"Pull Back From the Noise"--UPDATED

This last weekend I went on a retreat of sorts with a girlfriend to a land far, far away (metaphorically speaking). Excised from society was such a relief, I didn't want to come back. Alas, I came back anyway. Clothes needed washing. Kids needed teaching. Life needed living. Still, it was nice to not be in the midst of the chronic ulcerated state of the political process.

The Florida primaries? Uninterested. Republican debates between ...... Oh, wait a minute. I'm painting my nails.

Frankly, Hill and Bill, I don't give a damn. The Congress, where most of the dirty work happens, is a bloated, corrupt oinker. Sucking power from the people one day at a time for their own pet projects while ignoring looming crises.

The presidential candidates seem the same to me. They've all been blandified by focus groups telling them to be less this and less that. It turns out that they all just seem less. Maybe that's why a bland guy like Obama seems so amazing. He's different! He's part black! Whoopee!

The Anchoress says to Pull Back From The Noise. Amen, sister. Her post is worth reading in its entirety. She ends with the idea of grateful prayer. Amen again.

Update: Some people are making da' noise.
