I haven't been posting.

I've been asked why I haven't been posting. I could say it's because of work, school, and volunteering for the Obama campaign [the preceding is probably poor grammar]. Really, it is because I've been so immersed in the Obama campaign that the campaign or the campaign's subject is all that I would write about. I write about things 'kicking around in my head' and since I spend a significant portion of my free time talking with 'undecided' voters; my blog could easily turn into a 'tech support hell' type of place for low level political operatives. While that would be cathartic for me, and probably funny to some folks; that's not want I want to do.

The tone of my observations on this election season are more than adequately described by the posters and commenters at various sites.

These sites include:

Talking Points Memo
Sadly, No
Balloon Juice
The Huffington Post
The New York Times
The Washington Post
FiveThirtyEight.com
The Field Negro
BBC News
Reuters
McClatchy
CQ Politics
Open Left
FireDogLake
Economist (Democracy in America)
Politifact
Hullabaloo
Crooks and Liars
The Field (Al Giordano)
Too Sense
Slate
The Atlantic (Andrew Sullivan)

and more...

So, if you want an approximation of my opinion; compile the themes for these sites, and you'll find a large degree of accuracy.

I never thought that the United States could ever have undecided voters at this stage of the consciousness of the people.

In my country, the Philippines, there are a lot and it is not a sad truth but truth in how the people here are.

Good Luck to your campaign for Obama and I just hope his win will America a thing of the past.

Good to know you're still active at least. I tried to pick up a little slack and live blogged the first debate. Tuesday night, while Obama made more sense, lacked pizazz though, so went with the new Bill Maher movie this week.

Stop by and catch up when you get a chance. And with hockey season starting tomorrow, it wouldn't kill you to call your fellow sabres fans.

Looks like you haven't posted in a bit.

Let us know when you get back on the keyboard.

Totally like your site. Just came across it today. The only question I have for Ask a Real Black Man is where did you find such a fine looking wife? (joke) Keep up the good work!

Yes, why haven't you posted for a long time since Obama won. I hope you make more of what's been up about the US president now.
