Mike's Blog Round Up

Mock Paper Scissors: Democrats are not as divided as the pundits claim -- and certainly not as divided as Republicans are. (I'd add a reminder that, while Senate Republicans' divisions repeatedly sank ACA repeal, all Senate Democrats from the most liberal to the most centrist stayed united. That's hugely important.)

Juanita Jean: Trump's choice to head the Mine Safety and Health Administration has extensive experience with unsafe mining issues.

Progressive Eruptions: "Values voters" are supposed to actually have, you know, values.

P M Carpenter: Populism fails because it ignores the practical nuts-and-bolts political problems involved in realizing its goals.
