Between the Olympics and the one party with two conventions, we've having a month of media time consuming diversions.
Throw in news about a little war far away and stimulate talk of a new cold war. Add a little "white girl killed her baby" story to the Greta mix, a "hot" VP nominee and the football season is here and you have some time for those behind the scenes to refine their plans while we're not paying attention.
Just what has been going on during these "dog days of August" behind our backs.
I'd say any of those plans made will not be in our favor.
