Monday next week my school is having--a few days late--the district-mandated mock presidential election (.pdf). Talking about it today, my students insisted I tell them who I was planning to vote for. I did not. "It doesn't matter," I said.
Assuming my reluctance to answer was fear or embarrassment--rather than, you know, just following the rules--they then accused me of being a McCain supporter.
Just thought I would share.
