It appears there already was a forum for politics (under Topics). DemonD and I both apparently missed it. This being the case, it's not clear that yet more forums would be helpful, especially if they are broken down by subject matter, but by the medium that happens to carry it. One can imagine a proliferation of fora for TV, radio, cassette tape, vinyl, DVD, LCD, 8 track ...

Perhaps it would be better to simply put the thread under the Politics topic?
