    BTL #132 - SHUTDOWN, THE REMIX - 11/17/14

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Obama enters a “gives no fucks” zone and promises executive action on #Immigration, his support for #NetNeutrality, and a major climate deal with #China.  Let the lame duck games begin!


    2. The GOP’s only strategy is the one thing they strategized to not do again.  All hail #shutdown2015, the remix.

    3. Centrists and Liberals are about to throw down Tea Party style as Democrats reckon with how to not get shitstomped in future elections.

    4. Still don’t have healthcare?  What are you thinking?!  (Also, open enrollment is in session!  You could totally fix this!)

    5. ISIS still in the business of producing exceptionally long, disgusting videos.  We’re starting to doubt their much-touted social media savvy.  16 minutes is too long, guys!

    6. Well we landed on a comet.  (Yay?)  But besides causing a real #shirtstorm, we might not have accomplished much.  Turns out that sunlight is a really important ingredient in launching a successful solar energy space probe.

    BTL #131 - NOTHING CAN’T BE UNDONE - 11/10/14

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. As far as elections go, we’re not going to say everything is hopeless, but we are going to say that you need to do better next time, America!  We’ve blogged about how: Post-Election Blues: 14 Ways To Get Even


    2. Voters everywhere voted both for and against everything they stand for this election day.  Hey voters,  you don’t get to have two opinions on the same issue!


    3. The Lame Duck session is shaping up to look more like a healthy and virile duck session.


    4. SCOTUS invites a serious case of deja vu with a slate of new, high-profile cases that suspiciously like the old ones.


    5. We now have 3,000 troops in Iraq, but don’t worry, they aren’t “one the ground.”  The are just soldiers deployed to a war-torn region who have no particular mandate or agenda...nothing to see here.


    6. Goodbye Michele Bachmann and Steve Stockman, hello Glen Grothman, who will carry on your tradition of rhyming last names and insane agendas.

    *We apologize for the audio issue at the very end of the podcast.  Audio geniuses we are not, but hilarity geniuses?  That you can count on!

    BTL #130 - THE SOAP OPERA EPIDEMIC - 11/3/14

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. We’re going to lose the Senate, guys.  Sorry we’ve been lying to you.  Cali sun and whatnot...


    2. Colorado sneaks a personhood amendment onto the ballot by convincing voters it will save their unborn babies from drunk drivers.  Screw you, Colorado!


    3. Do not mess with Kaci Hicox.  She WILL take a one-hour rural bike ride if she damn well pleases.


    4. North Korea is on the frontlines of the war against Japenese Ebola and South Korean Soap Operas, both epidemics invented by North Korea.
