Mike's Blog Round Up
November 23, 2016

Shakesville: The reasons why Jewish Americans overwhelmingly vote for Democrats are almost limitless. This is one.

The View from LL2: Apparently, the road to the White House takes a detour through Buenos Aires.

Eschaton: They say nobody walks in LA, but the folks there voted to tax themselves more to make it easier to get around.

Pleasantly Eccentric: The ACLU is about to give the Shawnee Mission School District in Kansas a lesson about safety pins, Confederate flags and free speech.

Little Green Footballs: Right-wingers are heartbroken that President-elect Trump has broken his promise to prosecute Hillary Clinton.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Many liberals don't just want to defeat conservatives at the polls, they want to send them to jail." (Conservative blog Powerline, on President Obama “criminalizing conservatism” by possibly investigating the Bush torture team, April 21, 2009)
