I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Republicans Respond to Trump's 2005 Tape

Jason Chaffetz: "I'm out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine."
Rince Priebus: "No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever."
Paul Ryan: "I am sickened by what I heard today."
Mitch McConnell: Trump should "apologize directly to women and girls everywhere, and take full responsibility for the utter lack of respect for women shown in his comments on that tape."
Kevin McCarthy: "There is absolutely no place for that sort of conduct or language in our society. Donald Trump must make a full and unqualified apology."
John McCain: "There are no excuses for Donald Trump's offensive and demeaning comments. ... He alone bears the burden of his conduct and alone should suffer the consequences."
Jeb Bush: "As the grandfather of two precious girls, I find that no apology can excuse away Donald Trump's reprehensible comments degrading women."
John Kasich: "Make no mistake the comments were wrong and offensive. They are indefensible."
Mitt Romney: "Hitting on married women? Condoning Assault? Such vile degradations demean our wives and daughters and corrupt America's face to the world."
Dan Patrick: There's "absolutely no excuse to ever talk about women in such a crude and demeaning way."
Gary Herbert: "Donald Trump's statements are beyond offensive & despicable.”
John Huntsman: "The time has come for Governor Pence to lead the ticket."
Pat Toomey: "Donald Trump's comments were outrageous and unacceptable."

Jeff Flake: "America deserves far better than Donald Trump."
Tom Rath: "Go away. Go away. Go far far away......do not come back...ever."
