No, and whatever drops of hope I had left evaporated with the news of RBG’s death last night.

Trump will nominate some disgusting zealot and McConnell will rush the confirmation through.

Trump will say that mail in ballots are invalid if he has an early lead. When it gets to the SJC, they’ll put him back in office.

We will never have a democracy again if that happens.

I’m old. At least I won’t have to live a long, miserable life in our ruined country. I expect my last few years to be made unpleasant by it.

I have no hope to spare today. Even a crushing Biden victory won’t raise my spirits, as he’s pretty much useless and the GOP will be strengthened by it. Trump or some other ugly creature will run again and win.

We seem to be doomed.
