Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts
Mike's Blog Round Up

Trump, backed by spotlight-desperate Palin, threatens to sue after losing in Iowa, a true loser's move – and gets nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Cruz, a self-righteously petulant Bible-thumper, calls Trump a child and says he might nuke Denmark. Frothy drops out, following the similarly Talibanistic Huckster. So does Ron Paul's son, the often faux libertarian who sounded downright sensible compared to the rest of the field. Jeb! exhorts a New Hampshire audience to "please clap," marking another low point in the protracted fall of the House of Bush. Rubio, the leading "establishment" guy, freaks out over President Obama's visit to a mosque, because of course. Carson heads home for a change of clothes. And Christie, Kasich, and Fiorina... well, whatever.

Quite a week so far for the 2016 Grand Ol' Party, no?

Pruning Shears: Webster Slaughter's lesson for liberals.

Bay Area Houston: In 2016, bitch becomes the new black.
