Open Thread

Some good news for a change and, boy, these changes are good:

California's new Speaker for the California State Assembly is also the first African-American female to hold the top post in any state. Welcome Karen Bass.

The old Republican playbook of demonizing your opponent by associating them with someone negative doesn't seem to be working this year. Maybe demagoguery has a limit when people realize you are the one who's been screwing them. Wonder how badly the Republicans would lose if the only thing they could run on is their accomplishments.

Your turn now.
