Mike's Blog Round Up
August 29, 2014

Yes, Chuck Todd, the Republican Party basically has "too many crazy white guys." In fact, that's most of the party. And it's not just on reproductive rights, it's on, well, everything. Thanks for asking, though, even if, like the rest of your ilk, you can't quite come to terms with what the GOP has become, however obvious it may be. Anyway…

Aimee Patton: NRA women hit a PR home run.

Taylor Marsh: Republicans still have a big problem with women.

Echidne of the Snakes: The problem with the "lock-up-your-vagina" argument.

Pruning Shears: The problem with Marxist economic critiques.

Liberal Values: A Kansas independent may be key to the Senate.

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

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