Mike's Blog Round Up

What do you want to talk about? The situation in Crimea? The search for MH370? That building that blew up in Harlem? Nope. It's NFL free agency, baby! And as Grantland's Bill Barnwell reported, teams handed out "more than $1 billion worth of contracts in roughly 72 hours," with about $350 million of that guaranteed. I love the NFL – or, rather, I love NFL football (and the Steelers in particular), not so much the league itself, which is basically the sports version of the tobacco industry – but I think that says something rather disturbing about the country's priorities. But hey, football! America!!!

Frankly Curious: Paul Ryan's racist dog whistle.

Echidne of the Snakes: Mike Huckabee's phony chivalry.

No More Mister Nice Blog: Bill O’Reilly's Lincoln ignorance.

Infidel753: Ross Douthat's new Christianist argument.

The Rude Pundit: Dianne Feinstein's absurd hypocrisy.

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