Who would’ve thought that the talk of London would be the Ames straw poll? Apparently, the only American more fascinating to Brits than Bill Bratton is Michele Bachmann. I have a post on our sister blog, Global Spin, about the U.K.’s growing fascination with the U.S. primaries.
Regular Swampland readers may have noticed my absence of late. I’m taking a mini-break from U.S. politics to take a look at those across the pond in Great Britain. I arrived just in time for the riots. And their aftermath. Look for my stories for the next six weeks on Global Spin. Never fear, I’ll be back to cover the GOP primaries, the Super Committee and all the other fun in the Beltway carnival in October.
