    BTL #389 - Never Run For a Third Term In New York -3/1/21

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. The further right you get on the political scale, the more you should not be allowed to dance in public. And yet...CPAC still happened.

    2. The House passed Biden’s stimulus bill, but was the less-than-$2000 really worth staying up all night for?

    3. In classic Biden fashion, he figures out how to send bombs to Syria before checks to your bank account.

    4. Kids in cages are being shuffled around to different cages under the Biden border plan.

    5. Listen, kids, here’s some advice to live by: Never run for a third term in New York.

    6. More vaccines are coming! So you can think about that while you continue to not be able to get an appointment.

    BTL #388 - The Weather Messed With Texas - 2/22/21

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Rush Limbaugh: A terrible person, now with deadness.

    2. The weather messed with Texas and...Texas folded immediately.

    3. Ted Cruz picked himself up by his bootstraps and flew himself to Cancun for some fun in the sun while Texas froze.

    4. “Joe Manchin saves the day” is a sentence we never thought we’d write.

    5. Famous empath Joe Biden can’t seem to find the aforementioned empathy for minimum wage workers and student borrowers.

    6. It’s so annoying that we’re going to have to boycott all the gig employers in California.

    BTL #387 - No Defense - 2/15/21

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We joked Donald Trump would not need an impeachment defense to get off scott free and he didn’t have one.

    2. Blowback for GOP convictors. Not yet enough blowback for Mitch McConnell’s open hypocrisy.

    3. Trump’s COVID was more serious than we were told. And yet, it was also less serious than it should have been.

    4. I guess local GOP officials would be the ones to know if Antifa caused the Capitol riots because tons of them were active participants.

    5. In the Biden administration, threatening the press gets you suspended, not promoted.

    6. Weather. It’s everywhere. We’ll tell you what to do.

    BTL #386 - Bad Puns Gone Too Far - 2/8/21

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. The Iowa Caucus was one year ago this week in real time and this week last millennium in thought time.

    2. How can we tell Donald Trump that testifying himself at his impeachment trial would be so good for his ratings?

    3. Looking to compromise with someone, Democrats choose themselves in COVID stimulus reconciliation process. 

    4. Marjorie Taylor Green makes desperate attempt to cling to respectability by admitting 9-11 was real.

    5. Alert: The Newsom recall is actually happening.

    6. Pillows are now political: A treatise on bad puns gone too far.
