Mike's Blog Round Up

Today we look at the media narrative, and push back at the Right Wing Noise Machine. As background, Jason Leopold discusses the now-declassified CIA document that supposedly justified the Iraq Invasion.

Vagabond Scholar discusses the courage to make others suffer, ie., Iraq.

The Rectification of Names conducts a back-and-forth socratic conversation with Jonah Goldberg… about that populist, progressive conservative Mike Huckabee.

Checking Out Your Shorts has a few, brief words to say about the Duggars.

Bonus Track: Fawny transcribes film auteur John Waters commencement address at the Rhode Island School of Design. There’s also a link to a video of the address, but you might want to keep the sound low if you are in your office; it's not (totally) safe for work.

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