Mike's Blog Round Up
September 24, 2018

Good morning fellow Crooks and Liars! Welcome to what is sure to be a memorable week in the blog-o-sphere as the #MeToo movement runs headlong into toxic masculinity as the Republican Party openly declares War on Women to ram Brett Kavanaugh into the SCOTUS seat that amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell stole from Merrick Garland. The entire week we will probably be asking Who Dunnit?

Egberto Willies cuts right to the chase: Attempted rape is not a normal part of teen behavior.

Bonus Track: Miss Cellania presents the Blue Marble 2. If you love Rube Goldberg machines, you will love this, but read the explanation text, too.

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).
