Mike's Blog Round Up
October 22, 2014

Chris Christie, bullying blowhard extraordinaire, says he's tired of hearing about the minimum wage. (So, too, no doubt, are all his Wall Street pals.) Well, I'm [bleeping] tired of [bleeping] Republicans not giving a [bleep] about, you know, real [bleeping] people, because they seem to think society is at its best when it looks like Hobbes's [bleeping] state of nature, where life is nasty, brutish, and [bleeping] short for anyone without the [bleeping] power to dominate others. And of course this is from a [bleeping] "moderate" Republican. Awesome.

(Sorry for all the cursing. This really pisses me off.)

Simply Left Behind: The biohazardous conservative mind.

Squatlo-Rant: The right-wing fetus fetish crowd.

Zandar Versus the Stupid: The totally moderate Rand Paul.

The Rude Pundit: The Ebola crisis-mongering of David Brooks.

Outside the Beltway: The disincentive of GOP immigration reform.

Go Expos Blue Jays Pirates Royals!

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