It’s August, and there could be 90-degree weather across the state this weekend. So we can safely say the dog days of summer are here.

The pace is supposed to slow in life and politics during this time. But our political guys can’t help themselves, and they’re going to leave the hammock empty for another week. 

We talk politics on Fridays with Bill and Jeff. Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter andblogger at The Oregonian.

Today we focus on Oregon’s 1st Congressional District special election, Gov. Kitzhaber’s new eduction advisor and if Obama’s approval ratings mean Oregon is in play in 2012.
