Mike's Blog Round Up

Mike's Blog Round Up

So we're currently right between the first and second rounds of the 2014 NFL draft, that annual extravaganza of marketing, militarism, and mayhem. Thoughts? Please remember that any anti-NFL views will be taken as anti-Americanism. (I love NFL football and I'm not even American!)

Pruning Shears: The environmental angle of the GOP’s Benghazi obsession.

Booman Tribune: Making people hate each other is at the core of RW politics.

BeggarsCanBeChoosers: Unions are unfairly scapegoated for Detroit’s woes.

Bark Bark Woof Woof: Kansas is the failed state of conservative economic policy.

P.M. Carpenter: The precarious return of Obama-style hope.

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