Mike's Blog Round Up
November 10, 2017

Over at my place we say that hypocrisy "is not about failing to live up to your standards. Hypocrisy is teaching/preaching something you clearly don’t actually believe as demonstrated by your actions." Today we look at the Republicans through the lens of Alabama candidate for Senate, Judge Roy Moore, who allegedly might have molested a 14-year old girl when he was in his 30s.

The Rude Pundit has something trenchant to say about US Senate Candidate Roy Moore turning the other cheek, shall we say? (NSFW)

Addicting Info notes that Republicans are using the Bible to defend Roy Moore.

Hackwhackers rounds up some tweets to the Roy Moore news.

Bonus Track: Because we need something uplifting to conclude today, we turn to Open Culture who gives us 4 minutes of 23-year old Eric Clapton who gives us a master class in getting his sound out of a guitar. Gods walk amongst us.

(Best wishes to MBRU's Patrick Bjork from the Bjork Report who is off for the weekend.)
