Mike's Blog Round Up
April 25, 2014

Booman Tribune: American conservatism isn’t dead, but it’s not at all well, either.

Plunderbund: Racist, anti-gay bigot hopes to win GOP primary in Ohio’s 9th Congressional District.

Talk2Action: Sorry, Glenn Beck: the U.S. Constitution is not based on the Book of Deuteronomy.

The Moderate Voice: A convenient round up of Republicans running away from Cliven Bundy after his declaration that African-Americans were “better off as slaves.”

Speaking of which, your quotes of the day:
“Far more of the African-American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by policies of slavery.” (Arizona GOP Rep. Trent Franks, February 26, 2010)
“You know Obamacare is really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.” (Dr. Ben Carson, October 11, 2013)
“Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that money comes due - and this isn't racist, but it'll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master.” (Sarah Palin, November 9, 2013)
