Hopefully all our American commenters are bright-eyed bushy tailed after yesterday’s festivities. What did you all do? Cookout with family and friends?

That’s right, Congrssmen Richard Shelby of Alabama, John Kennedy of Louisiana, John Hoeven of North Dakota Jerry Moran of Kansas, Steve Daines of Montana ,John Thune of South Dakota Ron Johnson of Wisconsin Kay Granger of Texas all traveled to Moscow on July 4, Independence Day. Such a strange way to show your patriotism.
