During a recent lecture, Professor Erik Yerbikson reminisced about a steamy fling he had with the author of this week’s reading, Nina Jacobson.
“The essay I assigned by Jacobson is a groundbreaking piece of scholarship in the field of American Politics,” said Yerbikson, his cheeks starting to flush. “But it will never compare to the two weeks we spent together as tender lovers in the summer of 1997.”
“On page three, Jacobson offers an important insight about the role of race and class in elections,” continued Yerbikson, eyes gazing at Jacobson’s picture on his PowerPoint. “But when we were lovers for two weeks in 1997, we kissed each other with a deep passion that I have never experienced in my life since. It felt like we were the only two people on Earth.”
“Now, Jacobson offers some conclusions that many scholars have criticized over the years,” added Yerbikson, slightly biting his upper lip. “If only they had held her in their arms the way I did during those two weeks in 1997. Maybe then they’d realize the exciting and passionate lover she truly is. Jacobson is one-of-a-kind.”
At press time, Yerbikson was contemplating inviting Jacobson to give a guest lecture for old times’ sake.
