Mike's Blog Round Up
January 13, 2014

Hello, everyone. It’s good to be back. I hope 2014 is going well for you so far.

So while Democratic scandals involve thinks like eating pizza with a knife and fork, Republicans continue to be busy (a) making up fake scandals about Democrats (Benghazi, IRS, anything involving Obamacare), (b) doing actually scandalous things and then trying to cover up their own very real scandals, and (c) trying to destroy America. Regarding (b), it's all about Chris Christie, of course, whose George Washington Bridge scandal is, well, pure Chris Christie.

Kiko’s House: Why the GWB scandal won't hurt Christie in 2016.

Prairie Weather: How Republicans won (and will win) the House.

Booman Tribune: How political discourse has been truthified.

Human Voices: When kids are stupidly treated like adult criminals.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (Twitter: @mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
