4/26/21 - Warm Fuzzy Feelings

In Which We Discuss:

1. Derek Chauvin is a man who will be going to jail and that’s a nice thing. We could have this warm fuzzy feeling about the justice system anytime if we tried.

2. Joe Biden allows John Kerry to ride a Lime scooter on camera even though, as his boss, he probably could have put a stop to that.  

3. Andrew Yang loves lesbian bars but apparently not the lesbians who congregate at them.

4. Nancy Pelosi vs. Squad: A battle with no winners

5. Please commit to hating the Caitlyn Jenner candidacy for the right reasons

6. New American Psycho: The Josh Hawley Story

4/19/21 - Resident Public Health Experts

In Which We Discuss:

1. Afghanistan! We won in 2002. We’re finally leaving in 2021. Maybe…

3. Rule #1 of the America First caucus is don’t talk about the America First caucus.

4. Biden tried his own hand at America First politics. Went as well as it did for Marjorie Taylor Greene.

4/12/21 - A Predictable Outcome

In Which We Discuss:

1. So the giant corporation wins again in Bessemer. It doesn’t have to always be this way.

2. A Predictable Outcome: The Matt Gaetz Story.

3. Mar-A-Lago’s activities coordinator inexplicably has opinions on the world’s evilest man.

4. Andrew Cuomo is now a man without an enforcer or a clue, and it’s going awesomely.

5. John Boehner is back, and just as drunk as ever.

6. Caitlin Jenner is not a progressive icon, but she is a Republican trashbag and she cannot be the governor of California.

4/5/21 - The BTL Easter Spectacular

In Which We Discuss:

1. The BTL Easter story tradition continues...with a twist!

2. Attacking the Capitol is now more regular than perhaps we’d want

3. In a surprising turn of events, infrastructure week actually yields something of an infrastructure plan

4. The Matt Gaetz revelations are somehow both the most mind boggling, and least shocking things we’ve heard in ages

5. Quick! Get more progressive legislation in front of Andrew Cuomo while he’s still scandal-ridden

6. Turns out Amazon knew about the bottle peeing all along

Other than that, Happy Easter!
