    BTL #202 - THE SCANDAL TO PORE RATIO - 5/23/16

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. If we’ve learned anything this election season, it’s that a public official’s level of scandal is directly proportional to how many of their pores we see in the press.

    2. Hillary wins Kentucky by a nose.  Loses Oregon by all the noses.  [That was a Kentucky Derby pun, see what we did there?]

    3. Planes are unnatural and we refute the science that says otherwise.  We are not birds.

    4. We finally have the Parliament we’ve always wanted!  (Minus any productive action.)

    5. Oklahoma GOP hoping to rid state of frustrating hordes of medical professionals and women in the most passive aggressive way possible

    6. Good news!  All Texans are now gay according to the state GOP’s platform

    BTL #201 - QUIT YOUR BICKERING - 5/17/16

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Like most college parties, a Nevada State Democratic Convention ends with police turning off the lights and shouting “go home!”

    2. Nebraska devotes 2016 to trying all the different electoral systems in hopes that we can find one that works
    3. Donald Trump is not considering any of the VPs that his campaign is considering

    4. Trump and Paul Ryan finally meet, and, in a classic US diplomacy move, use this meeting to plan another meeting

    5. SCOTUS is sick of this nonsense, would rather you quit your bickering and just work it out yourselves

    6. Grayson/Reid is the Ali/Frazier of petty US political showdowns

    2. Ted Cruz is unable to get the ball through the "basketball ring' in Indiana...or get people to vote for him

    3. Donald Trump currently feuding with an estimated 56% of Republican party.  Now using “to Cantor” as a verb.

    4. Conventional wisdom says 2016 is Clinton in a landslide, but when has she ever let conventional wisdom determine her fate?

    5. Delegate allocation on both sides of the aisle forces us to wonder: Will there ever be final results to this crazy primary?

    6. Donald Trump enacts part one of his genius one-part Latino outreach strategy: Eat a tostada bowl on Cinco de Mayo
