Question of the Day

A new Associated Press-Pew poll has found that the interest of American voters in politics is at its highest level in more than a decade. Clearly, anyone hanging out here has an interest in politics, but, outside the blogosphere, do you express your interest in politics? I’m not talking so much about political activism in this case, but conveying an interest in political issues to others. Do you talk politics with friends? Family? Coworkers? Anyone who will listen?

Count me firmly as someone who talks politics with anyone who will listen. There are certain people with whom I know I can’t talk politics, because it will just erupt into a pointless argument (*cough*my dad*cough), but no one who knows me for more than about 10 seconds could possibly suffer from the misapprehension that I’m not an inveterate political junky, even if we never ending up talking about it.
