    Eventually Democrats will learn that Republicans throw their biggest haymakers in the summer, while Dems are writing it off as the "silly season".  BUt.  The Swift Boats attacked in the summer.  The whole Death Panel rise of the Tea Party was a summertime event.  Those things not only mattered after Labor Day, they largely defined the campaigns that ensued.  But, please, Dem consultants, enjoy your summer-long vacations every campaign year.  Because nothing that happens in the summer could possibly matter in November.  All the conventional wisdom says so, and what do today's Dem consultants have except conventional wisdom.  Nothing.  Nothing at all.
