Mike's Blog Round Up
January 16, 2016

As we write this on Martin Luther King's actual birthday, we note that on his observed birthday that "the vulgar talking yam" (thanks Brother Pierce!) will be addressing Liberty University at the invitation of President Jerry Falwell Junior. Jeebus weeps.

Speaking of college, First Draft looks at student loans.

If You Only News noticed that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton had some fun during the Republican debate.

Urantian Sojourn wants Ted Cruz to get off the cross, someone needs the wood.

Bonus Track: Laugh out loud funny, Look Inside This Book Club is a podcast wherein the hosts review a book based solely upon the excerpt available on Amazon. While the books are usually cheesy, the banter between the co-hosts is what will keep you returning for more episodes.

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).
