Help! I'm addicted to political wrangling...
I used to love hearing the Council Wars on WXRT with Aaron Freeman back in the 80's, recounting what was happening with Mayor Harold Washington and the lakefront liberals VS. the Vrdolyak 29 and the other naysayers of Daley's old machine. Mayor Washington and the liberals had to use the force against Ed Vrdolyak and Ed Burke.
I used to see Barack Obama on WTTW's Chicago Tonight with John Calloway, talking about the folks on the south side of Chicago and the dire problems they were facing.
Now, every day I obsessively read Daily Kos and Huffington Post and Mothering.com which has links to The New York Times and The Atlantic.
With the smear tactics of McCain's campaign and the worry of the roller-coaster polls, I'm getting sick of this round of fighting. Thank goodness the election is only a couple of weeks away. I can not take much more of this.
Or can I?
