For some reason, my sleep schedule is out of synch again, so I’m checking email and pretending to be productive while You’ve Got Mail, a slightly better choice than any number of infomercials, plays in the background on TBS, but it’s making me think that I really do need to consider getting cable.
So what’s so interesting at 2 AM? I’d imagine I’m losing a little sleep over the election. David and Bitch PhD (and countless others) have been blogging up a storm on this year’s election, and I haven’t really said much. In part, this is due to the fact that I’m teaching the election course and know that some (if not all) of my students have found this blog (one of my students Googled “Zell Miller” in class and found this), and while I’d imagine they’re smart enough to guess my politics, I don’t want them to think I’m trying to force a political stance on them. The result is that I haven’t been talking about the election nearly as much as I would like. I am pretty worried about what will happen if Bush wins the election, even if I’m somewhat optomistic that won’t happen.
Also, just a quick note: I got an email from another recruit for the “Georgia Super-Highway Patrol.” A la Gauche is blog by a fellow Georgian who has pretty good taste in political parties.
