All of a sudden the Republicans realized that holding a convention in the middle of a pandemic was not a great idea. The Democrats figured that out a few months ago and have already come up with alternatives. But the GOP is going to host a giant Zoom meeting with all that goes along with it (“Hey, you’re still muted!”) and then try to make the case that while it’s too dangerous to hold the convention, schools must be re-opened.
Meanwhile, the Senate Republicans can’t even agree between themselves what to do about the stimulus bill to replace the one that is going to end a week from today and throw a whole lot of people into limbo regarding their unemployment payments. And we’ve passed 4 million cases of Covid-19.
On the upside, or at least a glimmer of hope, Biden is leading Trump by 13 points here in Florida. But remember that polls don’t matter. Do they?
A moment of zen to appreciate some backyard nature.
