I admit that I have something of a feeling of schizophrenic ambivalence about the upcoming elections. I mean, there is so much more political irony out there during a presidential election. On the other hand, haven’t we seen just about everything that is possibly ironic, over and over again? Is there anything new in political irony?
Meanwhile, there was some really good news yesterday. Obama has managed to work out a deal with Iran to control their nuclear ambitions, while welcoming them back into the global community. Personally, I feel like Iran is the only nation that has any chance of stopping ISIS (or whatever people are calling them today), so this is very good news indeed. Besides, engagement is almost always better than isolation.
