Sunday Link-Off: Trumping the Unexpected

emma-roberts-aerie15-01I know that today’s post was a little bit later than usual but that might be a little bit too common over the next couple of weeks. I’m going to have a busy couple of weeks upcoming so I’m hoping to get posts done every day but we’ll see how long they actually end up being.

Anyway, it’s Sunday so it’s time for us to do the links. Let’s kick is off with some unexpected Emma Roberts.

One of the quiet stories in both the Canadian and American elections is student debt. The crippling student debt many post-secondary graduates have might come back to haunt the economy. (LA Times)

One thing that American voters have that Canadians don’t is electronic voting machines. Part of the reason for that may be because these voting machines aren’t that reliable. (Huffington Post)

Political spin isn’t just for those in or seeking office. We’re many, many years removed from the flawed campaign to launch the US’ war in Iraq but Dick Cheney is still trying to change how people remember it. (Salon)

Which Republican Presidential candidate is the most vocally pro-gay marriage? That would be Donald J. Trump. While his foreign policies are frightening, he does make a lot of sense in other areas. (Pink News)

And Kim Davis’ lawyer likened his client’s current dilemma to being a Jew in Nazi Germany. Some people need to can the hyperbole. (Right Wing Watch)

That being said, President Trump could be terrifying. (The Guardian)

What would retired NBC Nightly News legend Tom Brokaw do if he had to cover Donald Trump nightly? Retire. (Yahoo Finance)

Oh, and you would think that Kim Davis would have a lot of friends in the religious right. Unfortunately for her, for having been married four times, the Westboro Baptist Church has turned on her and blamed her for causing gay marriage. (Raw Story)

There’s a wrestler who doesn’t have a lot of sympathy from his primary fan base but has a pretty sizable following outside it. AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA! (Vice)

Did someone say JOHN CENA?!
