Time out

October 6, 2008

Don’t think so:

Two days before voters go to the polls to pick Indiana’s next governor, they’ll have to turn back their clocks an hour as daylight saving time comes to an end for the year.

For Gov. Mitch Daniels, who pushed the controversial time change through the legislature during his first year in office, the timing couldn’t be worse.

Though tempers have cooled since 2005, and a growing number of Hoosiers now say the time switch was good for the state, the issue remains potent for many voters and, for at least some, will be a factor in how they cast their ballots.

At least if we do vote that way (“I just had to set my clock back two hours, and I’m not going to take it anymore! So long, Mitch!”), we’re total rubes who deserve whatever government we get. Does anybody honestly think a Gov. Jill Long Thompson would make repealing daylight saving time a big priority? We’re going to have far too much on our state plate the next couple of years, even if the national economy doesn’t completely melt down.
