I think this will save me a tremendous amount of wasted time and worry. I certainly won’t need to seek out media coverage of the election to stay reasonably up to date about what’s going on, and, despite every sports fan’s hope, whether or not I watch the event won’t change the result (I’m almost sure that Obama will win, anyway). It’s also very unlikely that anything that happens during the campaign will change the way I will vote, and if something of that magnitude does occur, I’m sure I’ll hear about it. But otherwise, I’ll happy tune out the sound and fury for the next six months. I have better things to think about, better things to make and do.
