life of brian has some interesting things to say about the presidential election here, and there's also good information that someone posted in his comments here(for some reason they posted the comments in a post about gay marriage, but they are about the election).

yesterday one of my students asked me what i thought of the election. i told her that i thought the kmt were immature and childish, and if i was taiwanese i'd be embarrassed by their behaviour. we were on the way out when she asked this, so i'm not sure what she thought of my thoughts. this is the first class i've been asked about this, and in general i try to avoid discussing politics in the classroom. but sometimes it can't help but come up.
