Mike's Blog Round Up
March 6, 2016

What a week! There won't be another week like this for four years! We've had a leap day, a debate, SuperTuesday, SuperSaturday, and blog—only-knows what else in-between. We've ridden the high horse on the low road, thanks to the calm, reasonable, grown-up, adults-in-the-room Republican candidates. Thank you for letting me be part of your week. And thank you to the 28-plus outstanding bloggers who have kept us informed and entertained this week.

First Draft says no one should have to fear that her basic human dignity will be stolen.

The Inverse Square Blog mourns for the political satire writers this election.

Strangely Blogged says goodbye to Ben Carson.

Bonus Track: Marmel is only asking for a friend.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twittering machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
