VACATION….That’s it for me, gang. I’m on vacation. For the next week I won’t be anywhere near a computer, and if my luck holds, my hotels won’t even put a copy of USA Today outside my door.

Believe me, it couldn’t come at a better time. I definitely need a few days to recharge if I’m going to be ready for the torrent of slime coming our way in the final two months of the campaign.

Your substitute bloggers for the week will be Paul Glastris, former Bill Clinton speechwriter and now editor-in-chief of the Washington Monthly; Amy Sullivan, editor of the Monthly; and whoever else happens to be in the office and has something to say next week. Treat them nicely!
