Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts.

Hello, everyone. It's great to be back. Today, as you know, is Veterans Day in the U.S. and Remembrance Day in Canada and elsewhere, and so I begin with these concluding lines of one of the greatest of the Great War poems, "Dulce et Decorum Est," by Wilfred Owen:

My friend, you would not tell with such high zest / To children ardent for some desperate glory, / The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est / Pro patria mori.

Prairie Weather: The shameful treatment of America's veterans.

All Things Democrat: The right's ongoing Benghazi obsession.

P.M. Carpenter: The GOP's new anti-Obamacare strategery.

Outside the Beltway: The anti-Tea Party pragmatism of Mitch McConnell.

Seriously, today should be a day of remembrance and appreciation, not militaristic jingoism.

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