2008 Feels Like No Big Deal

2005 came, and then 2006, the future.

2006 ended, and then 2007, the future!

2007 will soon be over, and then 2008, the past?

For some reason, 2008 just strikes me as more of the same. I think it may have to do with the election. 2008 = 2004 + 4. So it's like a rerun.

Anyway, today I got a call asking me who I was likely to vote for. I said I hadn't decided yet. Honestly I haven't. Maybe Colbert. JK.

At the end of the phone call, the woman said, "This poll has been paid for by Hillary Clinton."

So that means that the Clinton campaign is funding telemarketing recon activity. Is that fair? It felt like a professional call from some bureau of information that would present the results to news programs everywhere, for the benefit of the public. "Coming up, tonight at 11, recent polls show Giuliani pulling ahead." Instead, whatever insight is gleamed from the polls will be the property of the Clinton campaign.

I had thought somewhat favorably of Hillary Clinton. And if I were running for President, I'd probably use every means of getting ahead, including gathering intelligence through telephone polls. But for some reason, I get the vibe that if Hillary is elected, more and more information is going to be collected until there's no privacy left anywhere.

But maybe that's inevitable?
