Mike's Blog Round Up
September 14, 2015

Greetings and Salutations, Crooks and Liars! What a week we have before us as Wingnuttia prepares for another shouty 2016 Goat Rodeo debate night, which means the Fox Effect is upon us again. In the meanwhile, let's share some piping hot links!

Progressive Eruptions wonders where have all the FEMA Camps gone, long time passing?

Brains and Eggs says goodbye to Governor Goodhair, who will not be at either debate.

The Rectification of Names looks at the Labour Party victory in the U.K., and compares/contrasts the red-panic rhetoric with the red-panic rhetoric that Bernie Sanders receives.

Bonus Track: Our good pal Prof. Hubbard at Above None of the Above tracks the 2016 Goat Rodeo. Side note: his reading of the polls was more accurate than Nate Silver in 2012 election.

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).
