Mike's Blog Round Up
November 7, 2016

Alright, I'm back for election week after stepping in for a day last Friday, observing the whole madness from north of the border and, through my anxiety, hoping that American democracy gets through this Trumpian assault on its very foundations.

What do you think, J. Edgar Hoover Jim Comey?

The Rude Pundit: Why Trump voters are wrong and full of it.

Frankly Curious: Why Trump is the greatest American Idol.

Hullabaloo: Why Americans can't have nice things.

Outside the Beltway: Why Hillary appeals to non-Democrats.

#Roar (I love this video. Maybe my favourite of the whole campaign.)

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
