Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts...

'Morning, Crooks and Liars! As I write this, NBC is reporting that Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein had a much longer relationship than previously acknowledged. As grimy and gruesome as this story is, we must keep an eye on it: it has a YUGE potential to impact the 2020 Goat Rodeo.

Infidel753 looks into Jeffrey Epstein's web, and reminds us that we are only at the beginning.

Political Irony makes the case that—however it is that Epstein made his fortune—it is going to become a key part of this investigation.

Echidne of The Snakes compares and contrasts Epstein with another pedophile, R. Kelly.

Bonus Track: The Visual Thesaurus reviews the upcoming book, "Because Internet" and tells us a lot about how the 'net is changing the way we talk.
