Mike's Blog Round Up
December 8, 2017

Crooks and Liars, we are celebrating Day 5 of Zappadan! Expect miracles!

Today, let's watch Frank Zappa's famous Firing Line interview from 1986. If only our compromised media (and their guests) were still so articulate about the First Amendment. Sigh.


Infidel753 reminds us that both parties are not the same, and sadly Al Franken's resignation is one differentiator.

Sky Dancing goes long on Franken's resignation; it's a terrific round-up.

BadTux, the Snarky Penguin gives us a morality tale about Capitalism. Spoiler Alert: it ain't moral.

Bonus Track: Web of Evil knows a another Roy Moore-style, anti-First Amendment Republican theocrat, snowflake when he sees one.

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).
