Mike's Blog Round Up
April 6, 2014

Let's recap our weak in review: we tweaked Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Mitch McConnell; Andrew Sullivan and Allen West were brought to task, the Supreme Court sold our democracy to the highest bidder and the Affordable Care Act made an important deadline. We had a few April Fools Day laughs along the way, too. Not bad for a slow news week, thanks to the talent of 28 (mostly small) blogs with exceptionally talented writers. We'll see you next time!

Scholars and Rogues waxes elegiac for Kurt Cobain on the 20th anniversary of his death.

Unqualified Offerings went to the airport, oh boy!

The Daily Dot tells us about America's exceptionally bad taste in beer, and PopSci maps it for us.

Bonus Track: The Political Satire Report goes to the movies!

Round-up by Tengrain of Mock, Paper, Scissors who also blogs at Dependable Renegade. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
