Mike's Blog Round Up
June 29, 2016

So Trump is having a hard time lining up big-time Republicans to speak at the Republican convention in Cleveland next month, but he's got way-way-way-way-past-their-prime, pro-violence sports figuresMike Tyson, Bobby Knight, and Mike Ditka? Oh, what an extravaganza of bigotry, bullying, and blowhardiness it will be. And worse.

Frankly Curious: When conservatives show how disingenuous they are.

Balloon Juice: When Trump lies about giving money to charity.

And because I really ought to mention Benghazi:

No More Mister Nice Blog: When history is written by the propaganda victors.

The Rude Pundit: When the whole Republican charade fails miserably.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.
