Just in time for Spring Break and another influx of Girls Gone Wild videos, TIME‘s Joe Klein announces his third campaign road trip and he’s asking readers for their help.
He writes, “The campaign is in a lull. The wars overseas are winding down. Washington is paralyzed. I’ve loaded up my iPod with some new songs. There’s nothing to do but….hit the road! And so, my third annual election road trip will commence on May 31–for three weeks through presidential battleground states, from North Carolina to, well, as always YOU get to decide the details of my route.”
He goes on to say, “I’m open to anything: brats, barbeque, baseball, flea markets or just a cup of coffee. As in the past, I’ll be bringing along some interesting traveling companions to keep me company. But my best traveling companions will be you. When was the last time a pontificating punditory prefect of the mainstream media asked you for your opinions? So put up or shut up…No kidding: I’m looking forward to hearing from you.”
