It's summer of 2020. Can anybody say this?

Know your protesters

The Other McCain gives the background on one of the men shot and killed in Kenosha Tuesday.
And wonders about the other shooting victims.
Now, let’s ask what should be an obvious question: What are the odds that a guy opens fire at a mass gathering and all three of the people he shoots turn out to have criminal records? Doesn’t this tell you something about who is engaging in these “mostly peaceful” protests?

I'm nice and you're not

The Democratic National Convention's message was quite simple - Joe Biden is nice and Donald Trump is not.
What will the Republican message be at their convention?
Has to be better.
Much better.
Hard to think how it could be worse.

What's happening here

 Powerline likes this video that mixes the Democrats' closing song Monday with the events of the summer.

Let's ride

Powerline has a clip from Sturgis, where a few members of Antifa visited - with help from the police.
Of course, the Antifas were counting on law enforcement to protect them. Some might find this ironic.

What to watch

 Should sports have returned earlier to the schedule?
But instead of watching sports in June and July, TV viewers watched Fox News.
And lots of MyPillow commercials.

You've got to get to the future to worry about it

President Trump signed his executive orders Saturday and Democrats immediately had their talking point -  he was going to destroy Social Security and Medicare with this order.
Forget their proposal of $3 trillion in spending on their wish lists.
Trump is destroying the future.
To destroy the future, we have to get there.
While many are afraid to return to work and outside activities, you've got to focus on the fiscal problems.
Not mail-in voting and other Democratic priorities.

Did you ever have to make up your mind?

 Althouse features two posts today about the last presidential team - and their lack of quick decision making.

Joe Biden is still working on his vice presidential pick - after first saying it would be announced August 1.

Why the delay?

This kind of approach — being openly meditative about the issue at hand, with a penchant for missing his own deadlines as he mulls his options — is in line with how Mr. Biden has made other big political choices throughout his career. Those who have worked with him over the years describe nonlinear decision-making processes with input from allies and family members, a barrage of questions from Mr. Biden, and a habit of extending deadlines in a way that leaves some Democrats anxious and annoyed, while others say it brings him to a well-considered decision, eventually.

But Biden is a speed demon compared to Barack Obama - still working on his memoir about his eight-year term. It might take eight years for him to write.

If you're looking for decisive leadership, it's not on the Democratic side.

Dutch treat

What spread faster than Coronavirus in July?
Mask nannies.
Wear the mask was the cry. If not, people will die.
What can slow their spread?
Dutch people agree.
'I like it when people can decide for themselves,' said Jesus Garcia, wielding the clippers in Barbershop Jordaan filled with mask-free staff and customers. 'You would have to really educate people how to use them properly for safety.' 
 He said he had worn masks during a trip to Spain. 'I did not feel it was really helping since people were wearing them all wrong, putting them in their pockets, placing them under their noses. It defeats the purpose.' One customer having a trim agreed. 'I find face masks absolutely awful. They're claustrophobic and don't work,' said Mark Casey, corporate finance partner at a major accountancy firm.
