Is there some way to set up a hot key that will type today's date into the current window as if I had typed it?
Yes, using a text-expander program such as AutoKey.
sudo apt-get install autokey-gtk
Open AutoKey from the dash, expand the "Sample Scripts" on the left, select "Insert Date", set a hotkey for it and save. That's it!
