Best Political Comment Of The Day… that I know of.

Dean Barnett at Hugh Hewitt, commenting on the “wisdom” of selecting former Republican senate majority leader Trent Lott as minority whip:

“Is it just me, or is it becoming increasingly apparent that the Republicans and Democrats are determined to engage in a two year dumb-off? If it weren’t for the fact that there are some very determined lunatics out there trying to kill us, this would be funny.”

Well, today I taught my first class as a substitute. Subbing is harder than you would think. It was an 8th grade computer science class. The day went well enough – no one died or got sent to the office, and I didn’t get flustered or freak when things didn’t go smoothly, like when I lost the definitions web page I was using during the vocabulary exercise. The students didn’t throw spit balls at me or anything. But, more than once, I felt very much out of my element. I definitely felt the pressure and uncertainty one feels when trying something really important for the first time, hoping they didn’t screw anything up. I’m not ready to write about it yet as I’m still analyzing the experience, trying to figure out what I did right and what I need to improve on. I’m not freaked out over the experience too much, but I know I was very, very green. When I’m done absorbing the experience, I’ll tell you all about the experience of the first time subbing job. But right now, I’d rather go have a beer, watch some tube, and relax for a spell. I must say, it was quite an experience.
