Mike's Blog Round Up

I was going to start this post by asking which one is worse, Trump or the Trump-like LePage. But then I thought about others like Cruz, Giuliani, Gingrich, Christie, Santorum, Brownback, Walker, Bachmann, Ernst… well, the list just went on and on… and it became clear that the question was pretty pointless. There are so many odious Republicans, so many dangerous extremists. Trump and LePage, so similar to one another, are just two of many, bigoted blowhards both, and Trump is very much at home in LePage's GOP, which is to say, in the GOP generally. He's not an outlier. Not one bit.

No More Mister Nice Blog: How Republicans keep losing.

Electablog: How austerity created Trump.

P.M. Carpenter: How Hillary is too genuine.

Outside the Beltway: How the race is shaping up.

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