Mike's Blog Round Up
January 8, 2017

Shakesville: These folks will make Donald Trump feel blue.

ScienceAlert: Antarctica is about to shed an iceberg the size of Delaware.

Fablog: The play’s the thing.

Stinque: Maybe the only way in which Donald Trump isn’t a rat.

Digby: Many of President-elect’s Trump’s nominees are suffering from severe cases of premature confirmation.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"This nominee has been somewhat erratic in his positions overtime and I'm concerned about that...He's taken some views that I think aren't good for America." (Jeff Sessions, on Obama Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, February 12, 2013.)
