Mike's Blog Round Up

Alright, that's it for me. It's been an honor doing the round-up the week before the election. I'm a Canadian, as some of you may know, but with a deep and abiding love for America (having lived there, having many family and friends there -- I'm a quarter American, for what it's worth). And I'm watching this expression of democracy, as I always do, with a combination of hope and anxiety. Go vote on Tuesday, if you haven't already. Take pride in your great land. And believe that it can truly be a more perfect union.

We'll continue to have extensive coverage over at my place, so do check us out. For now, I'll just point you to this: "Chris Christie: The running mate who wasn't." (Consider how different this race might be, and how well Romney might be doing, had he gone with the NJ governor instead of a deer-in-headlights ideologue like Ryan.)

Booman Tribune: How to win a ground game.

They Gave Us a Republic: No negotiating with Republican terrorists.

Infidel753: The fury of wingnuts scorned.

Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I: The GOP and the war on reason.

And looking around the world: This week in war.
