I figure I should let you know that between some network problems today (I hope just today; ugh) and the political science meetings later in the week, posting will likely be somewhat irregular through labor day. I'm not entirely gone though, just off my more-or-less regular schedule, so I do suggest that everyone obsessively keep checking for new posts.
I suppose I'll also say, for any political scientists who are going to Washington this week and inexplicably read this blog but not Seth Masket or the Monkey Cage, that John Sides and Henry Farrell have put together an absolutely terrific-looking panel with a great set of reporters, including friend of political science bloggers Ezra Klein, as seen on MSNBC. Thursday, 2PM (full details here). See you there!
