Mike's Blog Round Up
November 7, 2015

Paul Bilbeau: There’s nothing more dangerous than a trapped rat, er, conservative.

The Ogle: The incredible whiteness of being…one of Donald Trump’s leading supporters in Oklahoma.

Miscellany Blue: While Carly Fiorina refuses to correct New Hampshire man calling President Obama a “black Muslim,” one Granite State Republican embraces Black Lives Matter.

Burnt Orange Report: Indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton desperately tries to get his securities fraud charges dropped.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Texas must speak with one voice against this lawlessness, and act on multiple levels to further protect religious liberties for all Texans, but most immediately do anything we can to help our County Clerks and public officials who now are forced with defending their religious beliefs against the Court’s ruling.” (Ken Paxton, on the Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling making marriage equality the law of the land, June 28, 2015)
