December 12, 2015

Grab a coffee or an OJ this late-autumnal morn. Let's get right to the Trump-free links!

Duck of Minerva: Climate change and rhetorical entrapment.

Echidne of the Snakes: Class privilege and the privilege concept.

Occasional Planet: Elusive truth and the motivation of fear.

Oh, alright, fine:

Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I: Aspiring to be a dictator.

No More Mister Nice Blog: Planning for a brokered convention.

I give up. For all the grotesquerie, he is an unstoppable force impossible to ignore. Whisk(e)y, anyone?

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here through the weekend.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
