I had every intention to watch the Collins and Poloncarz debate tonight with a keen eye on both and how they presented the issues.
As I have done in the recent past, I also made my way over to Twitter to see what local tweeple were saying about the debate.
What ended up happening is that I lost interest in about 5 minutes.
It is not that I don’t care…cuz I do. And as important as the upcoming Erie County Executive race is, I just saw two guys on stage who seemed disconnected from me as a voter.
Maybe it is political fatigue. Could it be that the never ending flow of political info, opinion and news in the information age has made me dead to the process? I think that is part of it. But I also think I have lost faith in people running for office.
As for Twitter, most of the tweets I read were just cheer leading for one side or the other. That gets boring quickly.
This is post is just a broad statement as to where I am politically in 2011.
