Apparently the University of Tampa is the place to be right now.  John McCain is making his second visit to the UT today.  Though, of course, John McCain doesn’t actually want to talk to students or faculty.  He’s talking to the bigwigs at MacDill Airforce Base and other local business leaders.  It’s some “security” pow-wow.  Debi was able to sneak into the last one, though no one really got to ask questions.  I’m guessing today’s meeting will be pretty much the same.  I wonder why McCain doesn’t have Sarah Palin talking with the bigwigs at MacDill…

On Monday we also had Brian Moore of the Socialist Party on campus to speak to students.  Strangely, he called and invited himself.  I was the only faculty member who showed up.  His talk was during one of my classes, so I took my entire class to see him.  When we showed up, we doubled the audience (from 15 to about 35 with my class).  Alas, Brian Moore did himself no favors.  His initial talk was fine, not spectacular, but when it came time for him to answer questions he crashed and burned.  He couldn’t answer most of the questions students asked.  He ended up trying to have them answer their own questions.  It was pretty disappointing.  I hate to say it, but if the election was between McCain and Moore, I’d vote McCain.  Actually, I take that back, I’d write in Bill Gates.  Sad…
