I’m going to spend some time this weekend thinking about when and why I became such a political partisan, since people keep asking me about the partisan slant of my blog. I already know the answer, I think, but it’ll be nice to jot it all down here, especially since it’s bound to be an incredibly partisan answer that will alternatively enrage and amuse.
Keep in mind that I wasn’t a registered member of a political party until 2008, when I had to register as a Democrat in order to attend the first-ever presidential caucus in Nebraska (which was something that, as a political scientist, I really wanted to see).
But, also, while you’re watching this space for that exciting future post, here are a couple of questions for you: How would it be possible not to be partisan right now? And what’s so very problematic about partisanship anyhow?
