Mike's Blog Round Up
May 2, 2015

So I thought we'd start off this Saturday by talking a little bit about Bernie Sanders, whose entrance into the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination race is, in my view, a welcome development (even if he won't win, and even if we'll end up rallying behind Hillary).

The Brad Blog: Sanders versus the "democracy deficit."

Arsenal for Democracy: Sanders outraises Rubio, Paul, and Cruz.

Otherwise, in non-Sanders matters:

Pruning Shears: The political effectiveness of rioting.

Squatlo-Rant: The state of Texas loses its mind.

Talk Left: The indictments in Christie's Bridgegate.

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 AT crooksandliars DOT com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
