Yay, David Waldman makes it to the weekend—and you reading this, yay, you made it too!
The Trump virus is now the Pence Pandemic. Look forward to shortages of everything but incompetence and idiots, for which this administration seems perfectly geared to support. Quarantines could make everything worse. Of course, we don’t have anywhere to put people anyhow. Then there’s the economy...
But look on the bright side! Wow, is there a bright side? Well, it turns out there was no fraud in Bolivia's elections last October... Of course, that’s a bit late for their democracy, and for president Evo Morales, who was overthrown.
Donald Trump continues to dismantle our democracy before our elections. The US Justice Department helps Joe Arpaio try to erase his contempt verdict. We might still get an election, for what that’s worth. Are the Democrats still the party of norms, rules, and process? Will they continue to be that party? How do we keep it that way?
