White Arizonans will show us who they are this election

Only redeeming feature of Trump's candidacy is that it shows you who people are, for good or for ill. This is great. https://t.co/YQQNqFQ3Ue — Jon Lovett (@jonlovett) November 7, 2016 Fucking trolls took the blog down again a few weeks ago so I was unable to post until now.

Trump is not the working class hero that many of his supporters and pundits insist he is

The blog was down for several days but thankfully our delightful adminis-tress has gotten it working again in time for me to say a few things about Trump’s allegedly presidential and pivotal day trip to Mexico and his later speech (in which he etch-a-sketched any pretense of a pivot) in Phoenix on Wednesday.
