Here we are in the dog days of summer.  While the rest of us just want to find a cool spot of shade in which to relax, the usual gang of politicians and pundits are doing what they do best.  And what they do best is make a mess.  Whether it is one of the nation’s most powerful states attempting electoral self-immolation or aWinners-Losers massive government agency trying to get deeper into your personal life, the diverse staff of Camp Campaign has their fingers firmly on the pulse of the world politic.  We’ve got the skinny on the Winners

The way to win a conflict quickly is to scare the enemy from fighting any longer — see: Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Meanwhile, leaving your position vulnerable encourages them to proceed.
