Mike's Blog Round Up
January 5, 2015

Hello, everyone, and Happy New Year. It's 2015, the year we were warned about in Orwellian fashion in (the highly underrated) Back to the Future II. 2014 may have been a horrible year, in so many ways, but it would be a mistake, I think, to expect better things from 2015. Call me a pessimist. Or a realist. Whatever. Let's just move on...

Kiko's House: A new year's musing on dysfunctional America.

All Things Democrat: Mitt Romney is ready to save the GOP.

Squatlo-Rant: Louie Gohmert is a national treasure.

The Left Coaster: Winnowing the GOP herd for 2016.

And because insanity isn't just a political/Republican thing:

Frankly Curious: Silly religious beliefs past and present.

Oh, did I mention the Steelers lost on Saturday? Maybe that (partly) explains my negativity.

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