Mike's Blog Round Up
October 2, 2016

Alright, that's it for me this weekend. I just want to confirm that, yes, this round-up is entirely rigged. I selected everything myself, and I loathe Trump. Call me biased, if you wish, but I loathe fascism, nativism, racism, sexism, and everything else Trump is about, and I also deplore the many, many deplorables who are supporting him. So there.

P.M. Carpenter: The political education of Hillary's leaked-tape comments.

Zandar Versus the Stupid: The October "surprise" about Trump’s tax returns.

Frankly Curious: The importance of looking at broad polling averages.

Hullabaloo: The sordid history of Trump's Atlantic City dealings.

Outside the Beltway: The potential global consequences of a Trump presidency.

Make sure to vote, everyone. Those of us in the rest of the world are depending on you.
