    In Which We Discuss:

    1. French presidential elections are three parts funny farm, two parts nonsense, one part unpredictable margin of error

    2. Trump’s first 100 days were so annoying we might be willing to settle for a wall-related government shutdown

    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?

    6. Military blimp with an adventurous spirit breaks free of its shackles and goes joy-flying around Pennsylvani

    2. The Democratic post-debate carnage was so bad that they lost candidates who weren’t even running.

    3. Sorry Jeb!, it turns out that all the money in the world can’t buy you...campaign contributors?

    4. Iowa Frontrunner Ben Carson’s biggest political weakness turns out to be his only professional qualification

    5. Paul Ryan’s diagnosis after joining the speaker race: politically suicidal.  Let’s have some fun!

    6. House needs a pick-me-up after failed Benghazi hearings, decides to repeal Obamacare again because that’s always comforting

    7. No matter where he is, what he’s doing, or which gays he’s passing judgement on, David Vitter will hire a prostitute because regular friend won’t have sex with you for money

    2. Kevin McCarthy’s Speaker candidacy unravels after an accidental moment of honesty

    3. Oregon shooting is a remarkable reminder of how unremarkable it is to be talking about mass shootings in America

    4. Bernie Sanders...the oldest guy to ever be THIS trendy

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. “Surprising” new Iowa polls show that everything we’ve always said would happen is happening now in Iowa, where we said it would happen


    2. GOP candidates are ready with plans for our next immigration war with...Canada?


    3. O’Malley and Sanders are not afraid to get all up in Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s face


    4. Apparently stealing a single Mountain Dew while Black (#SMDWB?) in America is yet another offense police punish by death


    5. The sanitation strike in Beirut is bad enough that it’s spawned a rare multi-religious movement (as well as great PR for their new sanitation service, Uber)

    BTL #166 - REPUBLICAN DEBATE #1 (W/ GUEST KIM EATON) - 8/10/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We recount every moment you wanted to relive at the first official Republican Debate.  So...basically all of them.

    2. Like women who can’t shut down pregnancies in cases of “legitimate” rape, the GOP can’t seem to shut down the compulsion to make insensitive comments about women

    3. Hillary’s Dems to their own base: Hey guys, is debating really the answer when we’ve already chosen the candidate?

    4. Schumer comes out against Iran deal because, why not be a tool?

    5. Like the rest of mainstream history, gay history is now popular enough to be whitewashed in film

    BTL #165 - HITCHHIKING FOR ROBOTS - 8/3/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. First GOP debate just days away and there is no way to discredit Trump in time.  Lookout!

    2.  Huckabee plans to distinguish himself before the debates as the only candidate ready to call the military in to stop your abortion

    3. Obama will introduce new climate change measures, but not in time to stop this nightmarish heatwave in Iran

    4. Black lives may not matter to some Americans, but lion lives sure do.  A dead lion trumps another police murder as the week’s top story. 

    5. Send your computer friends to Canada, guys.  Turns out American streets are not safe for hitchhiking robots.

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Mitch McConnell becomes the first man in history to accomplish the task of making John Boehner look competent

    2. Southern Republican Leadership Conference polls members, chooses flavor of the month, gives Ted Cruz’s father the platform he’s been waiting for

    3. GOP hopefuls know ISIS is a problem, promise that after the primary, they’ll come up with a plan

    4. Turns out you only need the first 14 Duggars to generate the incest-y scandal we’ve been anticipating

    5. Mike Huckabee’s knows for certain that we’d NEVER tolerate allowing SCOTUS to choose the president.  He’s a walking encyclopedia...of non-facts.

    6. Hillary Clinton doesn’t remember that  that failed 2008 run and, according to her resume, neither should you
