On the blogs: End of Year, Before Doom, Edition


How the Obama Coalition Crumbled, Leaving an Opening for Trump -- Nate Cohn, and sorry, but it wasn't Putin or Comey, it was white working class people in the Rust Belt. In one word, Neoliberalism. And yes Cohn uses the term working class. And it wasn't turnout. Cohn says: "Mr. Trump made gains in white working-class areas, whether turnout surged or dropped." Facts should matter.

The Revival of the Working-Class Concept: Trump, the Class Struggle and the (Somewhat Overstated) Specter of Fascism -- Gary Leupp on the only positive thing of this campaign season, the return of class analysis. The US is not classless, and the working class is not happy with Neoliberalism.

A BRIEF TIMELINE OF VERY BAD YEARS, FROM 2016 TO 65,000,000 B.C -- Ryan Bort and 65 million bad years. I'm sure 2017 will suck too!
