The Long Dark November Of The Blogging Soul

Wunderkraut's unhappy:

Maybe all bloggers go through this at some point. This must be where most give up, while others stick it out. You reach a point where you have written about the things that most interest you and you feel like you are repeating yourself. What more is there to say? How many more times can one point out the bias in the MSM? How many more times can you point out the hypocrisy of the Democrats in Congress concerning the war in Iraq? How many times can you bash Republicans for selling their souls and spending like drunken Democrats? How many times can you criticize President Bush for failing to use the bully pulpit to explain his positions on the war and on Social Security?

How many times?

Trust me-- a lot of frickin' times if you want to keep this up. I don't think I've said something original since May 2004.

It's the nature of the beast, though. Anyone who has to produce opinions day-in day-out is going to have to start, errm, judiciously recycling them. How many times has the Doyenne of Ditz Maureen Dowd likened the Bush Administration to the Sopranos and/or The Godfather? About sixty-seven bazillion at last count. And she only writes twice a week. (Or, as Truman Capote said of Jacqueline Susanne, "She doesn't write, she types." And, yes, I've quoted that before, too.)

And yeah, that's why I sometimes don't post much... sometimes I just think, "Does anyone really want to read that CBSNews is a liberal institution again? Or that Mary Mapes is an idiot?"

I couldn't even bring myself to comment on Mapes' book. It's like picking on the retarded kid at school-- sure it's great fun for all involved (including for the retard, who's happy as a clam to play a rousing game of "Who took my favorite Snoopy hat and filled it with vegetarian chili and dissected cat organs?"), but it leaves you feeling a little empty.

That said, Wunderkraut goes into the breach once more and notes media and Democratic hypocrisy on Michael Steele, "twisted intelligence," and the like.

Repetition About Repetition: Actually, I'm pretty sure I wrote a similar post with the same title "The Long Dark November of the Blogging Soul."

In fact, I might have written the same f'n' post twice before.
