Mike's Blog Round Up

Mike's Blog Round Up for Saturday, March 2, 2013.

Booman Tribune: Right-wing bloggers took money from the Malaysian government to publish pieces attacking pro-democracy activist.

Digby: When it comes to austerity, Republicans continue to look to the capitals of Europe for guidance.

Goblinbooks: A terrified Bob Woodward has been sending me his lunch money. How did it come to this?

Boing Boing: President Obama angered conservatives and alienated Trekkies and Star Wars fans alike when he proclaimed “I’m not a dictator” and couldn’t perform a “Jedi Mind-Meld” on recalcitrant Republicans.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day: “If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.” (George W. Bush, December 18, 2000)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round Up this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
