"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


red and white and nearly over

Well, this is fun.

Sorry to those of y'all who aren't interested in politics. The next couple of weeks of posts won't be about much else. Election season is kindof like Christmas to those of us in political science. Seriously. We talk about polling data for fun. The best part is that not only do we actually know how to read polls (do not take Zogby or Rasmussen polls seriously, no matter what your local paper says.), but my friend Brian will actually be calling the election for a major network. The party on election night will be the best of the year.

Yeah, we're a little geeky. But did Ryan Adams write a song about your profession? I didn't think so.

Do you guys in the poli sci biz do pools or bet on the elections?

Um, no. People post their predictions as a matter of pride. We do have our professional integrity to uphold. Aside from the fact that I don't bet.
