The holiday week's last "encore performance" includes coverage of Romney's Hamptons fundraisers, where wacko rich people delighted in screaming from their luxury vehicles about how special they were, and how much they hated poor people. Greg Dworkin discusses polling on the swing state ad wars. We run down the exciting post-July 4th recess Congressional agenda (doomed Obamacare repeal bills in the House & cloture votes on whether or not to end debate on beginning debate on jobs bills in the Senate) and discuss the Supreme Court's then-recent ruling in a prominent labor law case (Knox v SEIU). Finally, some political theory speculation on the origin of voting, and why doing your part in casting your vote is important.
