Link round-up for 30 October 2016
There's now a complete Trump alphabet.
Errr.....coffin races exist, and here's why (found via Mendip).
We've always been weird.
Here's a collection of Classical mythology jokes.
For Halloween, dancing German witches, a cat lover, and ten terrifying female mythical creatures (though to a Republican, the scariest one would be women voters -- and they're real).
Dog whistles aren't good enough for Trump.
Curt Schilling may be a teabagger, but he's bombing in the city of the original Tea Party.
One horcrux down, six to go.
"This is fair now. This is the law."
Stupid Republicans are stupid.
Kinda figures -- Trumpanzees don't know any Spanish. (Hey, are they doing the Sign of the Horns in the last pic?)
Vines are being phased out -- here's how to keep your favorites.
People need to know more Christian history.
Crazed crazy people are crazily crazy.
There are striking differences in the treatment meted out to different protesting groups.
Learn the history of how we won the 40-hour workweek (found via Progressive Eruptions).
Trump uses the battle of Mosul to demonstrate his grotesque cluelessness about military affairs.
This is what education looks like under a theocracy.
Girls, especially younger ones, are closing the gender gap in science.
Trump's "rigged election" bullshit could backfire on the whole party.
Paul Wartenberg reports from a Hillary rally in Tampa, with numerous photos and video clips.
If you're planning to vote for Stein, read this.
Here's the flaming-religious-nutball argument for Trump.
More analysts think Hillary has a chance at winning Texas (as I suggested here).
Mock Paper Scissors looks at Comey's October surprise. Hillary's campaign hopes supporters will be angered and energized by such a blatant attempt to influence the election. Cherchez l'homme!
The more women vote, the better.
This election will decide a lot of other things besides the Presidency (I already voted for Kate Brown, but #14 is a real shocker and needs to go the other way).
Trumpanzees fantasize about rebellion if their man loses -- but not all of them. And the government is doing a good job keeping tabs on potentially violent groups anyway.
Republicans will emerge from this election badly divided, perhaps weakened even for 2018. Let's hope so, given the sinister anti-democratic thinking taking hold among conservatives.
