Link Roundup: April 2, 2016

I’m on a plane right now! But that’s not gonna stop me from linking stuff.

Just because I’m out of town for the weekend doesn’t mean the blog stops! It’s like magic. Religion * [Atheist and satanic literature to be distributed in Delta, Colorado schools]( -- It may be petty but this amused me. Politics * [People have been talking about "the thing" with Ted Cruz for some time now]( -- So, apparently Ted Cruz is some kind of sex machine who sleeps with a lot of women.

Link Roundup: March 19, 2016

You didn’t think you’d get through another Saturday without some links, did you? Politics * [Bernie Sanders replaces stump speech with epic call for Native American justice in Arizona]( -- Good speech, but probably too little, too late for the sake of his campaign. * [Trump's top foreign policy advisor? "I'm speaking with myself"]( -- This is not even a little bit surprising, is it? * [The Obama doctrine](http://www.

Link Roundup: March 12, 2016

If people don’t start clicking these links, I’m going to replace Link Roundup Saturdays with Dad Joke Saturdays. You don’t want that, do you? Music * [On its 33rd birthday, here's "Blue Monday" played on old-fashioned instruments]( -- Because I love New Order and this is cool and you should watch/listen to it. Politics * [Man charged with assault after punching protester at Trump event]( -- Glad to see he didn't get away with it.

Link Roundup: March 5, 2016

Another week, another set of links. You know the drill. Politics * [Big Mother is Watching You: Hillary Clinton]( -- What's Hillary Clinton's record like with regard to the treatment of sex workers? Not good. * [Travis County GOP apoplectic over new chairman]( -- Notorious scumbag Robert Morrow somehow got himself elected chair of the GOP in Travis County, Texas. Poor Republicans. * [Why Bernie Sanders won Super Tuesday](http://www.

Link Roundup: February 27, 2016

One day I should make one of these posts and have it consist of a bunch of pictures of sausage. But now I can’t because I just gave it away.

You never asked for this, but you’re getting links anyway. Politics * [Republicans show signs of division on Supreme Court tactics]( -- Some want to unilaterally block nominations to replace Scalia, others want to just drag out the process, etc. Constitutional crisis, here we come? * [The weirdest, best photos I found in an old Bernie Sanders archive]( -- Bernie Sanders photos from the '80s!

But no Valentine’s Day theme here. Sorry. Politics * [Ted Cruz campaign pulls ad after learning actress was a porn star]( -- Because what's an election without some sex worker shaming, right? * [The weird campaign of John Kasich]( -- Kasich is kind of bonkers, really. He hides it well on stage, but he's a very strange guy. He's also wrecked Ohio's education system and is very execution-happy. He comes off like a grandfather figure, but he is not a merciful man.

It’s dangerous to Internet¬†alone. Take these.

I round them up, you click them. Maybe. Probably not. Science * [There is now nutrient-rich algae that tastes just like bacon, because science]( -- Sign me up! I also learned there's a type of fungus grown in buckets used to imitate chicken. What an amazing time to be alive. Cute * [The new Gerber Baby is ridiculously adorable]( -- No, really.
