Ai, Dios Mio, I better ramp-up and get back on track here and re-focus on my oh-so-researched political blogging ~~ Rox Populi has just released her I Call Bullshit and Offer My Own Best Political Bloggers Contest ~~ nominate your favorite political bloggers and/or suggest additional categories. I am very honored to say that lil ole Sensory Overload here has been nominated in the "Best Political Blogs Most of Blogdom Hasn't Heard Of" category. (We can't all be DailyKos or The Left Coaster, you know.) I've been distracted of late with this teeny-tiny-issue called unemployment and that deafening money-sucking-sound coming from my bank account, not to mention 2-3 chaotic weeks of trying to get a field placement position in a Swing State, all compounded by my not-very-Darwinesque survival mechanism of simply curling up in a corner of my apartment to read various books cover-to-cover, and blogging about that. So, I have in fact been sitting on quite a few new posts and will start uploading them tonight. For now, please accept this shameless marketing ploy to get you to read some of my past, favorite, politically-leaning, social-justicey with a hint of personal-angst-thrown-in-for-spice posts (you know, just in case you missed these the first time), to wit:
