Mike's Blog Round Up

Mike's Blog Round Up for Thursday, November 28, 2013.

Satirical Political: How the Supreme Court ruling in the Obamacare contraceptive coverage mandate case could end the rhythm method.

Eclectablog: How Michigan Republicans could force women to purchase rape insurance.

Balloon Juice: How Joe Lieberman broke his promise to never become a lobbyist.

Colorado Pols: How--and why-- the threat of a recall election led a Democratic Colorado state senator to resign.

Huffington Post: How the Best Damned Band in the Land marked the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.”
(President Abraham Lincoln, Thanksgiving Proclamation, October 3, 1863.)
