I'm a politics addict, especially during presidential election years. This time, I was a strong member of camp #FeelTheBern throughout the primaries and followed Sanders into the Clinton campaign so that now #ImWithHer. I watched all the debates and watch every live appearance of a candidate I can find. I listen to pundits from both sides, and I fact-check everything I come across. I have friends and relatives from both sides, and most of them are sick of it all and ready to see the end of it. I can't turn away. I'll continue to pay attention to political coverage and discuss it with whoever's willing. Discussion doesn't need to be putting forth arguments to convince but can be honest efforts to understand. I truly believe that. If you've managed to read through that paragraph, maybe you like discussing politics as much as I do.
On the other hand, maybe you're just being polite.
In either case, I offer you Peter Capaldi speaking on coffee as a non-political treat:
Small pleasures, that's the spirit! Now, if you haven't already, GO VOTE! And then join in the festivities at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's T Tuesday gathering.
