I know I'm addicted to primary news, when I've already read every single article that anybody links.

I mean, really, I'm always a bit of a news addict. But, in a way, this is the election I've been waiting for my entire life. Oh, sure, they're all politicians, and oh sure, maybe people don't live up to their promises, but damn, right now, this is marvelous good fun.

Pedantic, even for me:

Nicholas Kristof on whom the administration is backing in Africa.

When I'm sick, I get more annoying.
