Mike's Blog Round Up
October 16, 2016

Squatlo Rant: Here’s some tonic to help you make it through Election Day.

The New Civil Rights Movement: The Charlotte Observer refuses to endorse Governor Pat McGrory (R-NC) for the first time in his 25-year career.

Blue Mass Group: There’s a growing consensus about the biggest obstacle for Donald Trump and the GOP.

Election Law Blog: If Donald Trump loses and refuses to concede, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell must denounce his dangerous claims of “election rigging” and “vote fraud.”

Speaking of which, your quotes of the day:
"David, it's not my job to tell the American people what to think." (House Speaker John Boehner, asked by David Gregory if he would denounce “birther” rumors about President Obama’s citizenship, February 13, 2011)

"David, I don't think it's nice to call anyone crazy, OK." (House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, asked by David Gregory if he would call “birther” rumors “crazy talk,” January 23, 2011)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round Up for the last time this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
