    1. Low turnout in South Carolina led to Hillary Clinton blowout.  Sounds right.

    BTL #163 - MAVERICK TWITTER WARS - 7/20/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Heartbreak in the war hawk community as Iran nuclear deal robs them of a reason to rumble

    2. As if just living in Tennessee isn’t its own brand of terror, their standard American-issue mass shootings are now getting complicated by non-redneck political ideologies

    3. Donald Trump picks fights with “maverick” John McCain, but luckily for everyone he also picked a fight with Mexican drug lord El Chapo so somebody may rid us of the Trump problem soon anyway

    4. Democrats first “cattle call” gives Iowa party activists a look at all 5 candidates, leaving many of them to wonder...Hey, what are most of you guys doing here?

    5. Phoenix feels the Bern with the biggest campaign rally of the season.  For anybody wondering, that does mean Sherrif Arpaio's Arizona just had the biggest rally of the season for a Socialist. 

    6. Oklahomans are residents of a state that didn’t exist at the time of the civil war and they are also people that just waved the confederate flag at Obama.  That kind of sums up what’s going on in Oklahoma.
