So when can we expect the Congress-jocks to give us an analysis of the voting on HR 1? Maybe in the Summer 2013 AJPS? Maybe never? It was only the largest supplemental approps bill in history and the first major test of a new President...nothing to see here, more W-nominate scores to plug into Stata...
Sorry boys, CQ nailed it the next day. Political science has moved from "slow journalism" to totally irrelevent in my lifetime. Sad really.
Every once in a while I think about coming back to "the academy." It brings me to sites like this to see if the game has changed for the better, it hasn't.
So I will stick with my COLA, and my generous travel per diem (faculty actually share rooms at conferences?) and my 40 hour week (with comp time or overtime if I go over) and the sense that the work I do actually makes a small difference in people's lives.
