Mike's Blog Round Up
May 31, 2015

Sunday Funday!

Go forth and sin the good sins! It's been a fun week for me, and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have. I DO hope we've learned some stuff along the way. One thing I learned this week is the lesson "Judge not lest ye be judged." Hastert was a Judging, "Family Values" Republican, who clutched his pearls and ran to the fainting couch screeching "What will we tell the children." Well, as like all the most strident impeachers in the House, he was a hypocrite, buggering kids. Meanwhile however inappropriate, Bill and Monica's relationship was between two consenting adults. So we're on to the "Lest ye be judged" part, which suits me fine.

And with that, I want to welcome one of the funniest, observant and incisive bloggers on the net, the guy I warm you up for-- Tengrain, who will be with you all week, starting tomorrow.
Lets get the Round-Up rollin'...

Echidne kicks it off with one of the most pitch-perfect GOP-Duggar-Hastert-Walker blog posts I have ever read. Drop some coins in her box, please-- she is a National Treasure.

Towleroad notices a hitch in Obama's Proclamation For LBGT Pride Month.

Grab the body oil, and the 50 Shades Of Grey whip, because Joe My God is bringing you a real Manly-Man's Honest And Preznidenshul Campaign Video from Rand Paul... Who, ironically, disqualified himself with this video.

And finally... on a more serious note, my friend, Fred Clark, of Slacktivist explains: The ‘CharlieCharlieChallenge’ doesn’t lead to demonic possession — but it can nurture credulity and willful ignorance, which is worse.

For the record, I am a Catholic In Recovery, and not even totally awesome rock star, Pope Frankie can drag me back. I DO like to go to church(es) from time to time, but mostly it's just for the music.

Can you help us out?
