Happy Friday, fellow Crooks and Liars. As we all know, the right doesn't have a sense of humor, but when confronted with their terrible policies, they blameshift us and say we don't have a sense of humor, don't you get the joke? It's all gas lighting.

Bonus Track: Because we are all about the pods: Oh, My George Takei has a podcast. Available where'er you get your podcasts.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to (with For MBRU in the subject line).
