Mike's Blog Round Up

Nevada Progressive: When John Lewis speaks, all Americans should listen.

Tragic Farce: Bush reportedly said that the Iraq war was “willed by God.” As for this week’s new revelations about waterboarding and botched intelligence, you should be agog at Gog and Magog.

Kevin Drum: What should we make of Thursday’s “Europhoria?”

Political Carnival: S&P 500 hits four-year despite continued right-wing cries of socialist tyranny.

Speaking of which, your quotes of the day: “With the Denver Dems strutting their stuff, this could be a bumpy week for stocks. Did anyone say free-market capitalism is the best path to prosperity?” (Lawrence Kudlow, August 25, 2008) “The Obama recession is in full swing, ladies and gentlemen. Stocks are dying, which is a precursor of things to come.” (Rush Limbaugh, November 6, 2008)
