    My political destiny

    I’m just getting this feeling:

    A life of perpetual opposition.

    Recognizing too well the sentiment, I can only surmise the professor is married and has children.

    My ideal scenario would be to live next door to my wife and kids.

    I love the subtlety of not closing the quote – implying an eternal life of opposition; Prof Jacobson, even in burnout you are gifted. Perhaps you’ve forgotten that while readers like me frantically assessed the left’s crushing triumph in 2008, you were a calm, steady, re-assuring voice telling us not to be afraid. This blog was a confident and serene presence not deeply invested in how readers reacted or how events unfolded. In quantum physics, the very act of observing a particle can change the status of the particle. Perhaps in political blogging, it is the particles that wreak change on the observer.
