So, To Be Clear

Six months (At least) of endless hype, oceans of ink and hyper text given to hyperventillating about the all-determining importance of poll swings last June or October towards a party convention this August and a general election this November, all this epic importance attatched to the votes of one hundred and twenty thousand people, (about the same as you'll get in the Lincoln mayorial race,) in a nation of three hundred and ten million, and all of this while actual sitting office-holders, including the sitting president, who all may or may not be voted out in the event that, you know, is still quite a hell of a long ways away; were all actually making decisions and doing basic public-interest stuff.
