So I was planning to sit down and do an in-depth step by step comparison of the two candidates and their claims in the press. But then someone linked me to Obama and McCain — Truth and distortion and by the time I got through fact checking his work, I decided there was no need to reinvent the wheel. I also recommend running any new rumors through FactCheck.org if the deluge of new stories and accusations gets to be too much. I do plan to continue blogging about the election here, but real life also requires my attention and I realized while playing “follow the facts” that this is taking up a lot of time and energy that I need to devote to the work that I’m trying to get published. I don’t have a book deal, but I’d like one and I won’t get it if I don’t devote some time and attention to finishing my off-line projects.
