Mike's Blog Round Up
March 20, 2019

Good morning Crooks and Liars! Today marks the official beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere (Seattle is particularly fetching with blue skies and the scent of jonquils in the air), and as the poet Browning once once said, "the lark is on the wing and the snail is on the thorn," and Prznint Stupid's short fingers are where, exactly? Luckily we have a stellar crew of bloggers to explain how great beauty and low perfidy can co-exist!

The Rude Pundit sums up everything, in his usual manner.

Shower Cap gives us a rare, mid-week post that also sums up everything.

Strangely Blogged tells us that Rep. Devin Nunes is suing an internet cow. Yes, you read that right.

Bonus Track: Open Culture eulogizes the late king of surf guitars Dick Dale. They just don't make 'em like that anymore. We highly recommend you crank it up and dance your best '60s dance.

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).

Can you help us out?

For nearly 20 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
