I have no feelings about this in particular. Just an unexpected & newsworthy development.

Oh, I've got opinions on his politics, which I will refrain from elucidating here, but I've got no opinion in particular on his decision to run. It's a very competitive district, so he's got his work cut out for him, and I figure his chance of winning is next door to zero. (Although crazier things have happened.)

It's certainly an unexpected move for him, but I'm not surprised and it tracks with his behavior throughout the past decade. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to feel about that. It's just Marty being Marty.

Actually, "I don't care" is the correct position to have and reflects a healthy, well-ordered life and emotional maturity.

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I've seen those English dramas too, they're cruel
So if there's any other way
To spell the word, it's fine with me, with me

The list only has two items.

It is not "{a healthy}, {well-ordered life} and {emotional maturity}."
It is "{a healthy, well-ordered life} and {emotional maturity}."

uberfoop showing once again why he's a Top 7 b.org poster.

I'm not even sure how someone could parse it differently. I guess someone may expect a comma between the two items to model a pause in spoken conversation: "...a well-ordered (upwards inflection) life (pause) and emotional maturity." But the list still has only two items.

I’ll keep my mouth shut on this one, but I think it’s prettying telling that his campaign site has paragraphs about his career as a composer and no policy information whatsoever.
