For all the moaners and professional pessimists on the progressive side of American politics, heartening news from South Dakota:

Democrat Wins Special Election.

One swallow doesn't make a summer (nor an impeachable offence) but this was a Republican seat lost during a Republican presidency, with Republicans in charge of the house, senate, and supreme court. Besides, even if this doesn't amount to a hill of beans in November, it is better to die fighting on your feet than live scrabbling on your knees.
