Hoeltgen: There is No Controversy in Appointing a Justice Before Nov. 3

The American left today will tell you that Biden’s attempts to obstruct democracy in 2020 were OK because Republicans used a similar argument in 2016.

Thumbs Down: People Who Don’t Like Candy Corn
This thumbs down is kind of a double negative—apologies to our copy team. That being said, candy corn is literally honey-flavored nostalgia. Anyone who doesn’t like it clearly just didn’t have the proper amount of Halloween cheer as a kid. For 21+ readers, try soaking candy corn in vodka and then adding pineapple juice or club soda. You’re welcome.

Thumbs Up: Flies. Flies everywhere are really having a moment. From the national debate stage to…the national debate stage. Five years ago, could you ever have imagined that the one thing you would take away from a vice presidential debate would be that a fly landed on Mike Pence’s hair? #flygate
