Mike's Blog Round Up
June 5, 2015

TGIF! Today we assess the GOP candidates in the 2016 Goat Rodeo election, and handicap their chances.

Driftglass assesses Senator Lindsey Graham.

Socratic Gadfly evaluates Rick Perry 2.0.

Stonekettle Station handicaps pretty much the entire criminal enterprise.

Bonus Track: Newscorpse examines Fox News' stagecraft and storytelling.

And back at my place, we've updated our handy cut-out-and-keep goat rodeo form.

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 mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
