Well, John Kerry is coming to my area Tuesday and already the academes are gearing up for his visit. I recieved an email from a professor in my department (who happens to be the leader of the teachers' union) asking for volunteers to make signs for his visit. Now, I don't really have a point, except to say that I'm thoroughly annoyed (again) that academics assume we are all liberals. If I sent out a message announcing Bush's arrival (though he will never set foot in this area since it is deep democrat country) the department would go freaking ape-shit and they probably would kick me out de facto. No doubt there is propoganda in my department mailbox as I write this. If the tables were turned, however, you can bet there'd be hell to pay.
