    In Which We Discuss:

    1. RBG is the first woman to lie in state. Ever. 

    2. Trump makes his SCOTUS selection. Dems already prepared with excuses for why they can’t do anything about it.

    3. Goodbye healthcare, it was nice not ever really knowing you.

    4. It turns out #justiceforBreonnaTaylor will remain a hashtag and not a reality.

    5. In another failure to read the room, Nancy Pelosi is now offering even less COVID relief.

    6. The beginning of Joe Biden’s campaign day is usually a statement telling us it’s over.

    In Which we Don't Discuss:

    Trump's taxes. The news didn't break in time to make it into this week's episode. We'll cover it next week!

    BTL #366 - The Remarkable Joe Kennedy - 9/8/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Joe Kennedy has finally become a remarkable Kennedy, but only because he destroyed the dynasty

    2. Joe Biden’s gamble in running as a Republican pays off in money, whether it pays off in votes remains to be seen

    3. Biden campaign visits Kenosha, which is exactly one more visit to Wisconsin than the entire Clinton campaign

    4. You’re not really telling us we need video proof of Trump calling the troops losers. The proof is in our hearts.

    5. The month’s jobs numbers are notable but still fake

    6. The sinking Trumptilla perfectly embodies the Trumpian philosophy of doing whatever the hell you want, other people be damned

    BTL #362 - Rabid Bats - 8/10/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Progressives are on such a winning streak that you only have to raise $25k to win a statewide primary these days.

    2. If the widespread confusion is any guide, Joe Biden REALLY doesn’t want to choose Kamala Harris as a running mate.

    4. Practicing his dictator skills, Trump has started work on an Executive Order bonanza

    5. What’s happening with TikTok? Also, what is TikTok. Also, we’re too old to be discussing TikTok and that means Donald Trump is too.

    6. Rabid bats...is the subject of a story about the Libertarian party so...that tracks.

    3. The threat of COVID is even worse than that time you stayed in your house for three months

    4. Trump’s new campaign strategy: Kill his own supporters so he doesn’t have to be president for four more years

    5. Biden’s VP shortlist is shorter in number and short on excitement
