Well done, Mr. Mayor. And The Economist too, though it's an endorsement riddled with foolishness and self-contradiction.

Ramona's Voices: Why is Romney – confirmed liar, clueless anti-populist, shameless waffler – even close?

Connecting the Dots: Can caring – about each other, about the climate – change an election?

Slacktivist: What are the theocrats of the sub-Christian religious right predicting for a second Obama term? (Yes, all the more reason to vote for the president.)

In case you missed it... Desperation hath no shame: Romney's phony relief effort in Ohio (while his opponent was, you know, being presidential). The contrast was as stark as ever.

And a fun game to play: Who the hell said it?

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