Mike's Blog Round Up

Burnt Orange Report: Another Bush, one of the kids his grandfather called “the little brown ones,” may be the new big man in the Texas GOP.

Shakesville: More Republican family values for thee, not me.

The Moderate Voice: Log Cabin Republican executive director laments that despite its “good message,” the GOP was “perceived as anti-immigrant, or anti-L.G.B.T., or anti-women.”
