Lame-O Blogger Gets A Ticket to Lame-O Convention

Mark Elrod, the Harding University political science instructor who blogs at Mark Elrod’s Lame-O Weblog (his title, not our’s!), is going to be in the thick of the Democrat’s attempt to nominate someone — anyone — for president at its convention in August:

It’s probably going to be one of the most significant presidential nominating conventions in American history and I’m going to be in the middle of it.

So I’m thinking it might be interesting and it maybe even blogable.

Several months ago, the Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars contacted Harding about the possibility of sending some of majors to Washington to work in various internships. That evolved into an invitation to send students to the Democratic and Republican National Conventions this summer.

TWC also invited faculty members to apply for teaching/facilitator positions and I took advantage of the opening.

I’ve never been to a political convention at any level before so if I start acting kind of goofy about this as August approaches, please forgive me.

Don’t worry Mark. We have a feeling everyone’s going to be acting goofy come August, given how this whole show has progressed so far. But we’ve got your back and will be watching for updates!
