platform, shoo!

now that convention season is upon us, the talk has turned to the parties' platforms. the only people who should give a shit about political party platforms are historians, because it can be interesting to look at old platforms to see the evolution of the political parties' positions on various issues.

but instead, the people who give a shit about platforms are historians and reporters. and so we are stuck with a bunch of articles about the wording of these meaningless platforms.
