    BTL #249 - LONG-WINDED DETAILS - 6/21/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Breaking election news reported as it happens!

    2. Democrats proud of the work they’ve done forking tons of money into...a “radically boring” candidate.  We’ve still got it.

    3. Democrats attempting to protect America from healthcare ruin with the one skill they definitively have: making extra long-winded speeches about details

    4. The Senate GOP still too shy to tell us how their Obamacare repeal bill works out for regular Americans. (We're sure it’s not because it will take away all our healthcare, don’t worry.)

    5. Jared Kushner has an audible voice that we have now heard
