And, finally for Ukraine, we do not have high hopes."

"As women podcasters we are teetering between hope and hopelessness as "our" Supreme Court runs amuck.  We are grateful that we dodged the "administrative coup" bullet in 2020 but only if Democrats get out in droves and vote for Democrats this November. After all, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate was endorsed by President Trump and is a purveyor of snake oil and the Republican candidate for governor is a Jan. 6th "stop the steal," alternate slate of electors advocate who tried to toss out our votes from 2020. How are we laughing at anything? I don't know but we are!
