Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts

Alright, it's good to be back. Like any good American, even if I'm not American, I'm totally focused on the NFL, but as I'm already severely depressed about the Steelers, a pitiful team if still a glorious franchise, let's just get right to the links:

Frankly Curious: Barack Obama calls out the GOP crazy.

Naked Capitalism: Larry Summers pulls out of Fed contention.

Ramona’s Voices: Julian Assange gets crushed in Australia. (I would say I like Assange/Wikileaks quite a bit more than Ramona does.)

And a couple of posts on the current state of the Republican Party:

No More Mister Nice Blog: Far rightists' control based on thuggery.

Lance Mannion: Right wingers' politics driven by nightmares.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (Twitter: @mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.
