Mike's Blog Round Up
November 18, 2016

We did it! We made it to Friday. As our reward (other than happy hour tonight?), here’s some links to some great blog posts.

The Field Negro tells us how Trump actually won: mass disenfranchisement.

Dave Pell asks (and answers) What The Hell Just Happened.

His Vorpal Sword clearly, rationally, explains to us that "the invisible hand always leaves a footprint." Yup, the fix was in.

Blue in the Blue Grass tells us about white male Trumpian privilege.

Bonus Track: David E's Fablog tells us why we should not panic over the Supremes overturning their prior decisions.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).

Can you help us out?
