Happy Independence Day. This blog is run by a real patriot whose colors don't run, so it will be fairly inactive today. If you're desparate for politics anyway, go ahead and read my new piece -- a bit of a challenge to the idea that the campaign is the least substantive, ever. Short version: It is, if you're lazy and want to pay attention to trivia instead of the candidates' actual speeches, white papers, and records.
