Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts...
Mike's Blog Round Up

BradBlog: Surely something is rotten in the state of Maine, where mystery ballots put a Republican over the top in a state Senate race recount.

Cleveland Scene: Surely something is rotten at the Cleveland Plain Dealer, where the investigation into the police killing of 12 year old Tamir Rice involved publishing an article about his parents’ criminal records.

Mark Thoma: Surely there must be some good news about middle class jobs.

Beggars Can Be Choosers: Surely a Fox News gig must be in Darren Wilson’s future.

Speaking of which, your quotes of the day:
“You don't see any monuments to Bull Connor or the killers of Medgar Evers. Look, everyone has the right to protest. But you don't have the right to become so inflamed that you embrace the very injustice you're protesting.” (Mike Huckabee, comparing Ferguson protesters to Ku Klux Klan and White Citizens’ Councils, November 24, 2014)

“Here's what I would suggest: that there is something incredibly wrong when a government believes that some blades of grass that a cow is eating is so an egregious affront to the government of the United States that we would literally put a gun in a citizen's face and threaten to shoot him over it.” (Mike Huckabee, in defense of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, April 25, 2014)
