    3. GOP to Wisconsin voters: Drop dead 

    4. Rampant inequality in life leads to rampant inequality in deaths

    BTL #345 - Pearl Harbor Week - 4/6/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Get ready for a week in which everything will be constantly compared to Pearl Harbor

    2. We smashed the record for unemployment claims. Just slaughtered it.

    3. Turns out when 10M people are suddenly unemployed, medicare-for-all sounds like a great plan.

    4. The Democratic convention is being pushed, but no stupid deadly virus is going to stop the Wisconsin primary, whether or not they have polling place, poll workers, or voters.

    5. The Republican Governors are proving they’re actually as science-challenged as the character they play on TV.

    6. California is either doing a bang-up job, or it isn’t. The numbers tell many stories.

    BTL #343 - The Longest Year Of The Week - 3/23/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Donald Trump now handing out heart attacks on Twitter

    2. Mitch McConnell is currently the only Kentucky senator without Coronavirus, but given Rand Paul’s approach to quarantining, that could change.

    3. Senators spent their February dumping stocks instead of pandemic prepping.

    4. There were elections on March 17th, which was this week if you can believe it.

    5. We can’t be in public. How do we finish the primaries?

    BTL #342 - Pandemic - 3/16/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We’re in a real-life pandemic! STAY AT HOME!

    2. Maybe you need help remembering that tomorrow is Tuesday and an Election Day because the last week has felt like 12 years.

    3. Sunday Night’s debate was the most torturous yet, mostly because we were all stuck at home watching it.

    BTL #341 - Super Tuesday (w/ Guest Carla Nordstrom) - 3/9/20

    In Which We Discuss (W/ Special Guest Carla Nordstrom):

    1. The empire consolidated just in time to dash the hopes of anybody dreaming of a future more promising than “not Trump.” We compare these developments to the chaos that led to 1968's infamous Democratic convention.

    2. We moved up our primary but California’s Super Tuesday somehow still didn’t count.

    3. With last week’s carnage, the Senate races are our new raison d’etre. Senate Project 2020 is a go!

    4. Luckily, Tuesday March 10th brings new possibilities...

    5. But we’ll have to make it through Coronavirus to get there.

    6. One thing that’s keeping our emotional health in check: We beat MSNBC. Chris Matthews is no more.

    BTL #338 - We Must NEVER Vote for Michael Bloomberg - 2/17/19

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar win New Hampshire by coming in second and third.

    2. Sanders manages only first place in both New Hampshire and most national polls. Is first place his ceiling?: An Investigation.

    3. Nevada hopes to relieve Iowa of the pressure of being the only incompetent caucus state in the country.

    4. If you don’t like putting kids in cages, Michael Bloomberg can’t be on the table. 

    5. Telemundo’s accidental quiz show proves that only annoying overachievers know who’s running Mexico right now. 

    6. Maybe you missed the Saturday Night Massacre last week because it was on Tuesday.

    BTL #337 - The Last Iowa Caucus - 2/10/20

    [*UPDATED: Audio Issue Fixed*] In Which We Discuss:

    1. We traveled halfway across the country to witness the last Iowa Caucus!

    2. Unfortunately, no one has witnessed any actual results from said Iowa Caucus. 

    3. Taxpayers donate facilities for extensive Trump campaign rally.  Unfortunately for him, Nancy Pelosi’s meme game was strong.

    4. Mitt Romney attempts to save his obituary from the ravages of the Trump era during Senate impeachment vote.

    5. We now grant ABC all future Dem Debates.  That’s enough flying graphics and Wolf Blitzer for this cycle.

    1. We’ll share important self-care tips for the next #DemDebate 

    2. Next week’s TV schedule is: CSPAN, 25 hours a day, 8 days a week. Impeachment Trial-Palooza starts Tuesday morning at an ungodly hour.

    3. If you’re too young to remember the 90s, Ken Starr is doing a comeback tour and playing all his greatest sex-obsessed hits!

    4. Lev Parnas confirms everything we knew via common sense from the last six months
