Can we get a moment of silence for all the state House Democrats who are so deeply dismayed by COVID-19’s impact on public health what was supposed to be the last day of the session and the postponement of a grand tradition?

Democrats have gone stark-raving tone-deaf if they think it’s clever to go all wistful over a rubber band ball drop when they should be dealing with a public health crisis.

But not to worry, the Democratic caucus assures us, they are all working ‘round the clock to get Colorado through the crisis … by modeling fashionable face masks.

And they’re working hard by gardening in fashionable face masks to protect the roses from aphids and achoos, or something.

Most notably, Democrats are working hard to retreat and totally abandon their efforts to create a public health option.

By all means, Democrats, keep up your hard work.
