Mike's Blog Round Up

So, what did you think of last night's Democratic debate? (Wait, what?) You know, that mature, rational discussion of socially, economically, and environmentally responsible policy proposals. It was on CNN. (Uh… Benghazi?) Was it not interesting to you because the Democratic Party isn't an insanitarium of bigotry and extremism divided into bitterly feuding factions? (Hillary's e-mails!) Or because the two leading Democrats, Clinton and Sanders, are mature, responsible leaders with a positive vision for America's future, and for America's place in an increasingly interdependent world, whereas the two leading Republicans, Trump and Carson, have gotten where they are, appealing to their party's base, by promoting division and hate? (Hey, did you hear Trump is hosting SNL?!) [Sigh.] Let's move on…

Simply Left Behind: The fiasco that is Republicanism.

Perrspectives: The GOP's tax cut dishonesty.

The Rude Pundit: Intercourse with Benghazi.

Prairie Weather: Expensive lies about Afghanistan.

The Galloping Beaver: Waging war below the casualty threshold.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.
