You Gotta Know Where to Fold'em

Your LakeCountyEye observed another Independence Day with most fingers and toes intact. The period between the Fourth of July and Labor Day is when most political campaigns that are on their way to losing all their wheels founder. No one is ever quite sure what to do in July and August; and besides it's too hot to do anything anyways.

Operatives like your LakeCountyEye who can't afford golf are advised to take up an inexpensive hobby during the summer doldrums, like origami. All that is required is some paper and a little imagination.

For instance, your LakeCountyEye has learned that non-comical congressman Peter Roskam has dropped a fair amount of lit already into the Lake County mailboxes:
It is no secret that the trick to origami is in making just a minimum number of folds:
A few strategic crisp and clean folds are the difference between a wolf in sheep's clothing ...
... and a perfect Phil Crane.
