Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo four calling-birds

Scene Magazine's contest to redesign the Cleveland Indians. IIRC, the main problem isn't with the name "Indians" but with Chief Wahoo's depiction. But there are some good ideas in there. Wish I would have seen the call for submission. Wish there was also an option for Cleveland Rocks with a rock and roll theme instead of the literal "rocks". Also wish there was a decent Tribe option (one of which is a direct rip-off of Mutual of Omaha). (Grokked from Marie Vibbert)

And now, a message from Reince Priebus and the RNC. "Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King." And they totally meant Jesus, not Trump as king. Sure. (Grokked from Kathryn Cramer)

"But he knows he doesn’t like how much attention Barack Obama is getting and is also bothered by what Trump and his closest advisers see as an active effort to poke the president-elect and undermine the incoming administration with last-minute policy changes on his way out of office, according to two people close to the transition." (Grokked form Chuck Wendig)

Look, real election fraud… "Failed Michigan State House candidate Brandon Michael Hall—who was a prominent volunteer with the Donald Trump campaign—was sentenced to 30 days in country jail Tuesday for forging signatures on petition forms in 2012, the Detroit News reports." Wait, it's another conservative, never mind. Nothing to see here folks. (Grokked from Michele)

Peter Dreier on preparing for a Trump presidency with advice, information, and a plan for progressives going forward. (Grokked from Chuck Wendig)
