    BTL #226 - NEW YEAR, NEW CONGRESS - 1/4/16

     In Which We Discuss:

    1. A not nearly embarrassed enough new Congress was sworn in today, so add those new reps to your speed dial.

    3. A Trump cabinet update: it only gets worse

    4. Media continuing to give president-elect credit for business deals he’s not involved in

    5. Schumer’s Trump resistance plan: work with your captors

    BTL #221 - MULTIPLE CHOICE EXAMS - 11/15/16

    In Which We Discuss:

    *For our reactions to the presidential election, please check out last week's special midweek edition of BTL, available HERE**

    1. Somehow Trump is bigoted enough to invite Breitbart into the White House but okay with a man named Reince?

    2. Trump promises to keep none of his campaign promises in first major interview as President Elect

    3. A few medium okay things happened last week and that’s all we have to cling to

    4. Democrats, not swayed by subtler hints, finally get the point by losing an easy election to a madman and rally behind less centrist DNC chair

    5. California’s election is a multiple choice exam that only about 70% of us passed.

    6. If Donald Trump and Howard Dean had a baby, it’d be the electorally baffling state of Maine

    7. 2016 continues to fall apart further with the passing of Gwen Ifill.  Is life even real? Are we real?
