Mike's Blog Round Up
October 23, 2017

Hello, everyone. It's good to be back. As I bask in the glow of an impressive Steelers win yesterday, let's get right to the links and ask some probing questions.

The Mahablog: How can the DNC be so clueless?

Politicus USA: Will there be a Democratic wave in '18?

Occasional Planet: Why are liberals fawning over Dubya?

Gin and Tacos: Are Frum and Kristol really voices of reason?

Outside the Beltway: Why is McCain now taking on Trump*?

* I prefer "Orange Turd" or "Orange Moron." How about you?

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

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
