Mike's Blog Round Up
December 28, 2014

I want to conclude our week with a shout-out to the Jon Swift Memorial Round-Up, hosted by our colleague Batocchio at Vagabond Scholar. The Swift round-up is where the bloggers themselves choose their best or favorite post of the year. As Auntie Mame famously said, "Life is a banquet!" Thank you for letting me be a part of your week. I look forward to sharing links with you again, soon.

News Corpse suggests that Mark Levin has gone off his meds. I know! Hard to believe!

jobsanger discovers that the American Public overwhelmingly supports raising Social Security benefits. Sorry, Paul Ryan!

Dead Wild Roses followed the conservative #AskACop hashtag on Twitter. What could go wrong?

Bonus Track: BagNews has a meta moment.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberland. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twitter machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
