The self-indulgent benefits of having an old blog

This post comparing what Obama did in his first month versus what Trump has done so far got me thinking of those days of yore and wondering what I was thinking at the time. That got me into the archives so I just read everything I posted here in February 2009.

It was a nice reminder of how much politics can change in a relatively short period of time. I mean, 2009 wasn't that long ago. But when I read the archives and compare what I was thinking and worrying about then with what I think and worry about now, it's like I'm peering into a parallel universe.
