Mike's Blog Round Up
September 24, 2015

Values Shopping...

The Pope is in the house, and the Party of Christian and Family Values® is terribly upset that Pope Francis is telling them that they are doing it all wrong. Today, my cup runneth over in extraordinarily good writing from our finest Independent Bloggers. Choosing four was difficult. Thank you all for being so, very, very good at what you do.

Primo Encarnación y Hachecristo (I suspect that's a "pen name"), at Jaunita Jean's- The World's Most Dangerous Beauty Salon, examines the GOP's various declarations of the Pope's Semi-Infallibility.

Carl, of Simply Left Behind, has some very fine thoughts for you to read, as he observes Yom Kippur, the Day Of Atonement.

The always excellent Aimee Patton brings us news that Kris Korbach's office is being sued... go read it. Pop the popcorn.

And finally, Mark, at Lean Left, looks at this week so far, and concludes, in a very fine article, that "This Week Has Proven Republican Ideals Are Wrong For Our Country."

Round up by Monkeyfister (@Monkeyfister1 at Twitter). Send tips to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com with “For MBRU” in the subject line.
