Say/Do: Scott Wannabe#8 Walker promises to “stand up to special interests”as President. Too bad he didn't make the same pledge before becoming governor and giving $400 million taxpayer bucks to his political buddies to build a new stadium for the Bucks.

Burden of Proof: A DC appellate court has ruled that you can't sue the NSA for access to their records to see if they have been invading your privacy if don't already have proof that they did.
Haves/Nots: About half the money in US politics comes from about 400 families – that slice at the top that makes up the 0.01%. On the other end of the spectrum, about 400,000 people so far have given $200 or less to Bernie Sanders. Wastrels.
Minor Adjustments: Political observers say that Donald Trump is succeeding in the polls because the American voter is distracted, poorly educated, subject to emotional and personality-driven political adventures – as though this were a new condition.
Porn O'Graph: Until debt do us part
Note: Having drawn the short straw, SAR will be taking its summer vacation at the very dregs of the season and will return just in time to take off Labor Day. Behave.
