Mike's Blog Round Up
December 13, 2015

Alright, that's it for me this week. Thanks for putting up with all the Trump. See you again in the new year.

Scary Lawyer Guy: Republicans are Trump.

Seeing the Forest: Trump is Republicans.

So maybe, just maybe, the media should do their f***ing jobs.

Because how much more debased can it get?

But wait, there's other sh*t going on in the world:

Squatlo-Rant: The sleaziest televangelist of them all is back. (Trump isn't the only snake-oil salesman, after all. America is full of them.)

At least there's a new global climate agreement. And some semblance of hope, however fragile, that this most literally existential of crises will somehow be resolved by committed and coordinated action. Too bad about Republicans, though.
