    Snopes.com says that story about the Pope losing faith in American Christians is unverified.

    Vox again? There’s no shortage of good post-mortems about the Dems.

    I’m sorry to kick a dead horse, but Vox is part of a navel-gazing ecosystem that’s been keeping Dems (voters, not Vox-type Beltway tapeworms) in a delusional state for years. TPM. Maddow, Krugman — it’s a long list, but they’ve all done their part to assure Dems that by following the One True DNC Path, they could never ever find themselves in the wilderness, surrounded by strange beasts .

    Since it does no good to simply bash, here’s an excellent lecture that puts Trump’s win in historical and economic context. It’s long-ish, about an hour and a half, but well worth it: Mark Blyth on “Global Trumpism”
