On Monday, a handful of Democratic governors announced plans to lift mask mandates, citing a reduction in COVID-19 cases; or, as CNN medical analyst Leana Wen said, “the science has changed.”

The Week columnist Damon Linker, who also admits to being a regular on The Bulwark’s podcast, notes that conservatives are going to pounce on Democrats whether they keep restrictions in place or lift them.

Sounds about right.

He’s right, and conservatives are fully justified in both cases.
