well, here's a new one
I suppose this was inevitable.
After class today, my little darlings, who are apparently incapable of passing a sign-up sheet through the entire classroom over the course of 150 minutes of class time, were finishing choosing roles for the in-class presidential debate we'll do in a month or so. And one of them comes up to me to whine (there's no other word) about the fact that she can only choose between representing Barack Obama or John McCain.
Apparently I have a LaRouche supporter. Or so I assume. Ron Paul and Denis Kucinich are out, and she doesn't dress like a Bob Barr fan.
Can anyone think of a nicer response than, "Because my patience with exercises in futility is spent on hoping you'll correctly cite your sources in the paper"?
