Mike's Blog Round Up
January 17, 2016

What a week we've had! We lost a handful of artists, watched the State of the Union (and the rebuttal), stared mouth a-gap at the New Confederacy's debate, sent the Bundy Militia some lightly-salted care packages, and we've had a few laughs along the way. I want to thank the 28 or so bloggers who have informed and entertained us this week, and thanks to all of you for letting me be part of your morning this week.

Big Bad Bald Bastard has got Ted Cruz' New York Values right here!

Indomitable tells us that the old combination of guns, racism and toxic white masculinity was lethal in 2015.

The Progressive Paradigm quotes and then destroys Bill Buckley.

Bonus Track: Brains and Eggs needs our help getting to the fainting couch.

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).
