Tonight is the big vice-presidential debate, between two former governors, the charismatic Tim Kaine and the wooden theocrat Mike Pence. We'll probably have fresh takes on that soon, but in the meanwhile, we are feasting on Donald Trump melt-down news!

Badtux, the Snarky Penguin says goodbye to Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore as only a snarky penguin can!

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