    BTL #248 - AUNTIE MAXINE - 6/12/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Auntie Maxine called for impeachment as Nancy Pelosi looked at her shoes today at LA Pride’s #ResistMarch

    2. As usual, Britain has started a new political trend that we hope makes it stateside - not re-electing Conservative asshats

    3. The big Comey testimony takeaway: John McCain has some questions about Hillary Clinton’s emails he still can’t clear up

    4. Senate hard at work on secret Obamacare repeal they thought you might never find out about because...isn’t Comey’s testimony distracting?

    5. But don’t worry - things are only getting better for your friendly neighborhood banker. Not, not Rob Ulster from down the road whose mom was your fourth grade teacher, the one at J.P. Morgan.

    6. Anti-Sharia Americans want only their own identical anti-women, homophobic, restrictive laws to be enforced

    BTL #244 - TO STATE THE OBVIOUS - 5/15/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Comey firing was not, as it turns out, an elaborate prank on him, but it was certainly an elaborate prank on America

    2. Sally Yates “states the obvious’ in her Senate hearings because she’s the only one who will admit the obvious

    3. After seeing how much America loved having their healthcare taken away, GOP is moving to cut even more programs Americans depend on

    BTL #241 - CHOCOLATE CAKE AND CHEMISTRY - 4/17/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. First, we welcome the adorable baby giraffe of pregnant-giraffe-gate fame! Cute tiny animals! Fuzzy things!

    2. Then, try to forget that we’re going to die in a nuclear war with lunatic North Korea (unless, perhaps, they like chocolate cake and “great chemistry” as much as Donald Trump?)

    3. The White House has a mouse and presidential aide infestation

    4. Democrats are seeing a surge in local successes, leading some to ponder a bold new strategy of HAVING A MESSAGE.

    5. Lila was paid $100,000,000 to march in the Tax March on Saturday, give or take…hundreds of millions of dollars because she actually just paid $22 in uber fares to be there

    6. United Airlines is just as bad as you remember from before the last time you vowed never to fly them again

    BTL #240 - PASSOVER PURGE - 4/11/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    2. Even experts don’t seem to know if we’re at war with Syria.

    3. Trailer for White House Purge: Part 1 is finally released

    4. It’s round 2 and Republicans are still not eager to replace Obamacare with their now-revised shamy plan.

    5. Very little intelligence is available on the House Intelligence Committee, even in Nunes’ absence.

    6. Bernie sanders is taking a national tour like a literal rock star

    7. Michele Bachmann, an irrelevant person who is no longer serving in office, still can’t stop explaining it all

    BTL #238 - THINGS NOBODY WANTS - 3/27/17

     

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. AHCA is revised to address the real problems: obscure upstate New York tax issues

    BTL #236 - SAY TRUMPCARE - 3/13/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Enjoy your Trumpcare America, assuming you don’t die swiftly and in debt

    2. Heartless Republicans declare: “Let them eat iPhones!”

    3. GOP seems to think they’ve released the first accurate jobs report in eight years.  If true, it would also be the first accurate jobs report in the history of America.

    4. Donald Trump’s Twitter dreams are answered: He will get to see the court in court!

    5. The Terminator claims he’s not running for a California senate seat, so we’ll probably just see him on the ballot then

    6. Couldn’t find a White House tour that fits your schedule?  Getting in is apparently as simple as jumping over a fence and walking directly into the White House.

    3. Donald Trump resumes his shabbat twitter meltdowns, daring America to choose between trusting Breitbart and Barack Obama

    4. Trump complains that healthcare is hard. Crybaby! (Sad.)

    5. Donald Trump’s literal tens of...well, just tens of supporters show up to the Trump version of the “biggest rally in American history”

    6. We live in a world in which Kanye and Oprah Winfrey’s presidential campaign might happen at the same time

    BTL #234 - WANTED: MISSING SENATOR - 2/27/17

     

    In Which We Discuss:
