Mike's Blog Round Up
August 23, 2015

Alright, that's it for me, another week in the books. See you again in the fall, when, of course, Donald Trump will be that much closer to being president.

Because it could happen, you know. He's become the Republicans' Godzilla.

Hullabaloo: The GOP establishment must be getting really antsy.

TalkLeft: Enough with Joe Biden, your father's Oldsmobile.

Perrspectives: Conservatism's love-hate relationship with the 14th Amendment.

The Republic of T.: Katrina and conservative failure, ten years later.

And, of courseā€¦ Go Steelers! (And Blue Jays, who at least appear to have a chance this year.)

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.)
