Never do I feel so powerless and deflated in my role as a citizen as I do toward the end of an election season, but 2012 is quickly reaching a new level of awfulness. I just can’t wait for this to be over.

Today NPR told us some “good news,” the story that finally, by popular demand and Presidential edict, America is going to get a national college football playoff.
