Mike's Blog Round Up
March 22, 2016

This may have been the best headline I read yesterday: "Donald Trump is the most unpopular presidential candidate since the former head of the Ku Klux Klan." There's some perspective for you, eh?

All the more reason to give three cheers for Elizabeth Warren, who as usual didn't mince words and rightly called a loser a loser.

Frankly Curious: Conservative voters aren't that different.

Zandar Versus the Stupid: Goldwater-style realignment is possible.

Occasional Planet: Legitimate institutions have enabled Trump.

Prairie Weather: Americans are ripe for mass delusion.

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

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