Mike's Blog Round Up
May 11, 2016

Donald Drumpf (#MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain) really does love those white nationalists, eh? Makes you wonder if he isn't a white nationalist himself, or a sort of de facto white nationalist leader who knows just where his core of support is and is more than happy, cynically or not, to exploit the bigotry to serve his own egomaniacal goals. But no, a major American political party would never choose a white nationalist to be its standard bearer, would it? Not in 2016, surely.


Alicublog: Austin tells Uber and Lyft to screw off.

Bark Bark Woof Woof: Progress is never a bargain.

Echidne of the Snakes: Hedge fund managers are so blessed.

Gin and Tacos: Nate Silver isn't a magical talisman.

Hey, no Drumpf in those four posts! Hurrah!

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