Picks of the Week: Our favorite stories from the Daily Kos Community

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO SAY SO

Greetings, dear Community, and congratulations on making it through Brett Kavanaugh’s first week on the highest bench in the land. It’s raining in Southern California as I write this, and has been for more than half a day. Despite my Midwestern roots, I’m always startled by what always feels like such an abrupt transition from constant sunshine to sporadic rains and winds, but somehow it feels cleansing this week. We’ve rinsed ourselves clean of blood and grit after losing the nasty, bitter Kavanaugh battle, and we’ve shifted our efforts energy back to a blue takeover on November 6, which almost seems to be mere hours away.

As always, thanks for being here.
