Mike's Blog Round Up

Good morning. I'm Lance Mannion and I am a fugitive from a chain gang. I'm also a fugitive from a deadline, so l'd better get to this quick.

Guest host for the round-up: Me. My blog: here. Usual subjects: Whatever. Today's links: Coming right up.

Roxanne Cooper finds evidence that "the the anti-science/ pro-big business/ anti-Constitution/ othering coalition" otherwise known as the national Republican Party "is melting faster than Kilimanjaro".

Steven Hart has an attack of anti-nostalgia for the cigarette ads that used to interrupt the stories in the paperback books he loved back when he was young and impressionable.

Plenty of Democrats aren't happy at the prospect of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee---George Clooney, for one, according to the fab David E., who had cocktails with the man. Taylor Marsh, though, has her doubts about Barack Obama.

Pam Spaulding on Mike Huckabee's "rapist/murderer problem." Publius reminds us of how Huck's pardon of Dumond fits in with the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to destroy Bill Clinton---Dumond was innocent, don't you know? And Bill had him railroaded.

And with the holidays crashing down upon her, Quinn Cummings tries to find a place of sanity "somewhere between Ebenezer Scrooge and Thomas Kincaid."

Deadline met. Barely. Over and out.
