What is this feeling?

I feel guilty that I haven't been blogging. The problem is I only feel like blogging about politics right now, but my words seem inadequate to express how I think and feel. In listening to the Wicked cast album, I realized there was a song that says it very well:

What is this feeling, so sudden and new?

I felt it the moment I laid eyes on you.
My pulse is rushing, my head is reeling,
My face is flushing — what is this feeling?
Fervid as a flame... does it have a name?

Loathing! Unadulterated loathing!
For your face, your voice, your clothing!
Let's just say... I loathe it all.
Every little trait, however small,
Makes my very flesh begin to crawl,
With simple utter loathing.
There's a strange exhilaration,
In such total detestation.
It's so pure and strong!

Though I do admit it came on fast,
Still I do believe that it can last.
And I will be loathing, loathing you
My whole..... life...... long!

You know, loathing isn't really terribly constructive. I am disappointed - I expected you to be more solution-oriented. Instead, you have chosen to be consumed by the same emotionality that is preventing the country from finding any solutions or having any truly constructive debates. Oh well!

Hey, Rabbi: lighten up!
