Mike's Blog Round Up
August 6, 2017

Mahablog: In case you needed another reason why Jewish voters supported Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by a 71 to 23 margin.

Zandar Versus the Stupid: In case you were wondering if Ehud Olmert would be the last Israeli Prime Minister to get indicted.

Blue Mass Group: In case you were wondering how Republican Governor Charlie Baker could get reelected in Massachusetts.

Lance Mannion: In case you needed another history lesson to answer Stephen Miller’s xenophobia.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that ‘all men are created equal.’ We now practically read it ‘all men are created equal, except negroes’ When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read ‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.’ When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy [sic]." (Abraham Lincoln, 1855.)
