Mike's Blog Round Up
February 23, 2016

Zandar vs. The Stupid: Sorry, GOP establishment, but you created the orange-haired Frankenstein that is terrifying you now.

Brad Delong: Sorry, folks, but we can ‘t get back the economic demand we lost during the Great Recession.

Feministing: Sorry, dudes, but just because you think other dudes are the smartest ones in your class doesn’t make it so.

ThinkProgress: Sorry, Republicans, but Senator Joe Biden didn’t call for blocking all Supreme Court nominees in an election year.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
”So far, the only judges we’ve confirmed have been federal district judges that have been signed off on by Republican senators.” (Mitch McConnell, June 4, 2015.)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round for this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
