Jim Geraghty reports that the Democrats are planning high-profile “counter programming” activities during the Republican Convention in Tampa next week. It’s been traditional that each party keeps a low profile during their rival’s convention if for no other reason than simple courtesy.

They’re running scared.
Is it November yet?
