Here's a one-picture-is-worth-the-thousand words needed to illustrate the Republican Party's failed response to the Covid-19 pandemic from the White House to COVID-wracked-swing state Wisconsin.

I see little mask-wearing and zero social distancing during a Trump campaign rally in a bowling alley Monday in Menominee Falls, an upscale suburb in deep-red Waukesha County.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin with spiking cases remains a COVID-19 hotspot, and 22 minutes south by car from the bowling alley, the State of Wisconsin is activating an emergency hospital built into a State Fairground exhibit hall because COVID outbreaks have overwhelmed hospitals in Northern Wisconsin.
Flouting best pandemic-prevention procedures only spreads the disease.
I know people know better after seven months and more than 215,000 deaths nationally, and especially in hard-hit Wisconsin where nearly 1,500 have died and ICUs are filing up again - but poisonous partisanship is repeatedly and cavalierly displayed by selfish red hat devotees to prove that we are not all in this together.
