I can virtually guarantee there will be no political content on my LJ. I might have something to say the morning after election day, or not, but that's about the extent of it. At the most, you may see me mentioning I put in some volunteer hours at campaign headquarters. But those posts, should they happen, will be mercifully detail free.
As for political posts on my f'list -- passion is awesome! I'm passionate about the subject myself. I just happen to have other places on the internet to vent my spleen. I may not agree with you, and goodness knows, the majority of my f'list is totally on the other side of the political fence from me, but I think it's a good thing when people care enough to be involved. If Mary Matalin and James Carville can have a happy marriage, I think I can manage keeping my friends list uncut through the election. That's what scroll keys are for [g]
