Mike's Blog Round Up
November 4, 2016

Hello, everyone. I'm just stepping in for a day, taking a short break from Plouffian bed-wetting in response to the tightening presidential race but otherwise taking some comfort in the fact that I live in a mature, advanced, civilized democracy where an overwhelming majority of us frown on fascist white nationalism and its related ugliness.

Lawyers, Guns & Money: The FBI's war on American democracy.

Bark Bark Woof Woof: The only weapon Republicans have.

P.M. Carpenter: The disconnected world of the Trumpists.

Booman Tribune: The diversity of the American electorate.

Phantom Public: The best political ad of the season.

But let me just say again what I said when I was last here: Make sure to vote. Please. Those of us in the rest of the world are depending on you. I'm Canadian but really do love America – the America that I firmly believe can be a force for good, the America of Obama and Clinton. Don't let the forces of darkness prevail. Defeat them, for good.
