Dear Jeannie,

I”m so sorry for being this flaky but can I just use Election day as an excuse? The sense-making aspect of American politics has apparently decided to take a break so I feel like I should get to as well. (But really, I’ve just been swamped with project proposals, research, homework, exams etc.)

Here’s some fun links to tide you over till my next scintillating post:

Edited to add: This is a hilarious and also horrifying look into the heads of political speechwriters and the politicians they represent: http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/perfect-stump-speech/. (Click the highlighted words for super nsightful comments).

Anyway, see you on the flip side,

Crystal
