This is your daily open thread. Discuss whatever you wish to discuss. It’s been a tough year to follow Politics, and there are many reasons to lose hope for this country given the stupid people are winning elections (by having their equally stupid candidates win), the bad cops are being protected too much by the good cops (and others in law enforcement, like a certain prosecutor in Missouri who deliberately misled a Grand Jury and lied about the law they were supposed to apply just to keep a murderer free), and a Supreme Court ruled by people without respect for the Constitution who actually lied in a decision when they claimed that money doesn’t have a corrupting effect on politics. It’s so draining. Here’s a monkey washing a cat.
