Crafting is my bliss. Besides politics, it is my favorite thing in life. But it’s better than politics because it’s useful and doesn’t make you want to slap people and call them bad names.
When the political blogosphere starts to drive me mad, I escape to the “crafting” folder in my feed reader for solace.
But these days, I have to put up with crap like this:
And there is more. Much much more, ranging from the amazingly talented to the freakishly odd. Obama cupcakes, Obama embroidery, Obama jewelry, Obama knitting. There is even a portrait of Obama made out of – wait for it – change! (Actually, that one is pretty cool, so I’m going to link to it.)
It’s like the whole nation is under some kind of bizarre spell. It’s weird. I don’t get it.
I don’t begrudge people the right to worship Obama, and I certainly respect that people can do what they want with their own blogs, but it is such a bummer that now I have nowhere to go when I want to get away from politics.
I certainly hope that changes soon.
