Mike's Blog Round Up

In non-political news, Gene Wilder died yesterday at the age of 83. He was a remarkable comedic actor, and now and over the coming days, and beyond, you'll see clips of Wilder in movies like The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Stir Crazy, and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, and understandably so. To me, though, his supreme masterpiece was his performance as Dr. Doug Ross in Woody Allen's Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask), a man who falls deeply in love with an Armenian sheep. There's a single moment when the look on his face tells you he's in love, when it hits him, and it's pure genius. Now, on to the politics:

Bark Bark Woof Woof: Taking a committed stand for justice and change.

Human Voices: Looking back at supposedly happier days.

Lawyers, Guns & Money: Tackling the problem of down-ballot Democrats.

Zandar Versus the Stupid: Examining the key swing counties in November.

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