Today, I am grateful for:
Hope. I don't always have a lot of that when politics is the consideration (there's far more despair), but after writing the below blog piece on Mitch McConnell's run for Senate Majority leader this morning, I can see where the good guys win whether McConnell is victorious or summarily dismissed from his Senate job this November.
To call Democrats "good guys" is recognizing that the bar has become historically low for that designation, but relatively, they're saints when compared to this version of the GOP, which ain't so "grand."
In any case, those among you who are cheery optimists in the face of historic lows in the political arena, thank you for hanging in there. I may have just caught your bug ... at least for a bit.
