Mike's Blog Round Up

With tomorrow being Christmas, this will be my last round-up of the week. See you all next time, in the new year, when there will be – ugh – a new POTUS. I wish you luck, America, but more than that I wish you strength to overcome and the capacity to move forward, progressively, even with the immediate prospect of fascist, jingoist, white nationalist leadership that threatens everything that is good and just about your country (and that threatens the rest of us as well). And to those who stand against the Orange Turd and the party, his party, that is the political manifestation of the death throes of empire, do not succumb to your own sectarianism. Stand united against this existential threat. Fight on the beaches, if you must. America is worth it.

The Brad Blog: How progressives can expand democracy.

The Rude Pundit: How Senate Republicans can be turned.

AMERICAblog: How patriots can exploit Trump's insecurity.

Phantom Public: How Trump is right about Electoral College politics.

Outside the Beltway: How Republicans are cowering in fear.

Happy Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas. Merry "Christ"mas. Merry Mas. Happy Holidays.
