    BTL #175 - MARAUDING DANGER BLIMP - 11/2/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Paul Ryan is adorably optimistic for a guy who just became House Speaker


    2. Maybe the GOP’s distaste for facts explains why their “frontrunner” is in 4th place after the third debate. Has a supposed GOP frontrunner even been in the lead yet?

    3. Rubio is on a collision course with fellow candidates and fellow facts 

    4. Entire media misses the point of the Sanders campaign in their quest to sensationalize Hillary’s endorsement pick-ups

    5. Clinton emails continue to prove that Hillary really really really doesn’t know how to operate a fax machine.  Why was this still a problem in 2012?
