    BTL #175 - MARAUDING DANGER BLIMP - 11/2/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Paul Ryan is adorably optimistic for a guy who just became House Speaker


    2. Maybe the GOP’s distaste for facts explains why their “frontrunner” is in 4th place after the third debate. Has a supposed GOP frontrunner even been in the lead yet?

    3. Rubio is on a collision course with fellow candidates and fellow facts 

    4. Entire media misses the point of the Sanders campaign in their quest to sensationalize Hillary’s endorsement pick-ups

    5. Clinton emails continue to prove that Hillary really really really doesn’t know how to operate a fax machine.  Why was this still a problem in 2012?

    6. Military blimp with an adventurous spirit breaks free of its shackles and goes joy-flying around Pennsylvani

    BTL #170 - CELEBRITY WATER THIEF - 9/28/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Hey guys, what does it mean that Boehner is being remembered by Democrats as a great compromiser?  Should we be concerned?

    2. Walker can’t stand the figurative and literal heat at the Reagan library GOP debates

    3. Florida’s entry into the GOP race is on the rise...it’s just not Bush

    4. The Democratic poll numbers are fucking bananas

    5. Pope’s visit finally puts the spotlight on the greatest celebrity water thief in American history.  Somebody elected this person to office, btw.

    6. Who would have guessed that the makers of the adorable Beetle hatchback would be up to something so nefarious?  Only students of German history.

    7.  Brazen sea turtle riding on the rise in...you guessed it...Florida!

    BTL #166 - REPUBLICAN DEBATE #1 (W/ GUEST KIM EATON) - 8/10/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We recount every moment you wanted to relive at the first official Republican Debate.  So...basically all of them.

    2. Like women who can’t shut down pregnancies in cases of “legitimate” rape, the GOP can’t seem to shut down the compulsion to make insensitive comments about women

    3. Hillary’s Dems to their own base: Hey guys, is debating really the answer when we’ve already chosen the candidate?

    4. Schumer comes out against Iran deal because, why not be a tool?

    5. Like the rest of mainstream history, gay history is now popular enough to be whitewashed in film

    BTL #162 - THE DEFINITION OF UNITY IS HATING TIME WARNER - 7/12/15

    In Which We Discuss:


    1.  Bernie Sanders hates your cable company just as much as you, and that’s why he’s can be the President.

    2. Alan Grayson has a novel idea: running as an actual Democrat in a Democratic primary.  Guess who the establishment people are supporting…

    3. Donald Trump reminds us that he’s, “like, a really smart person.”  His surge in the polls proves that Republican primary voters are, like, really dumb people.

    4. Jeb Bush currently has all the money but don’t worry, if you work longer hours it’ll trickle down.  That’s worked in history, right?

    5.  If Germany can Shock Doctrine Greece, does this mean that California can Shock Doctrine Kansas and get rid of Sam Brownback?

    6.Why can Republicans never remember the third thing?  Now even Texas border states are suffering from this scourge.

    BTL #157 - SNAKES AND SINKHOLES - 6/9/15

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Sadly, Hastert’s attempt to rid the nation of corrupt legislators in the Clinton years was always destined to be incomplete.  Turns out he was one of them.

    2. Not even a clown car can contain the current GOP field.  And evidently the Democratic party can’t contain their candidates since none of them are actually members.

    3. Will the Biden’s ever catch a break?  For God’s sake!

    4. Jobs.  We have more of them than we used to.

    5. Patriot Act.  We have less of it than we used to.

    6. Duggars go on television to further explain their terrible choices, further embarrass their daughters 

    7. A rare supercombo of Snakes AND Sinkholes strike this week’s news!

    8. Huckabee.  This guy.

    BTL #156 - FAMILY TIES - 5/26/15

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Mitch McConnell becomes the first man in history to accomplish the task of making John Boehner look competent

    2. Southern Republican Leadership Conference polls members, chooses flavor of the month, gives Ted Cruz’s father the platform he’s been waiting for

    3. GOP hopefuls know ISIS is a problem, promise that after the primary, they’ll come up with a plan

    4. Turns out you only need the first 14 Duggars to generate the incest-y scandal we’ve been anticipating

    5. Mike Huckabee’s knows for certain that we’d NEVER tolerate allowing SCOTUS to choose the president.  He’s a walking encyclopedia...of non-facts.

    6. Hillary Clinton doesn’t remember that  that failed 2008 run and, according to her resume, neither should you

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We successfully crashed the CA Democratic Convention.  Screw the rules!

    2. Jeb Bush battles the hypothetical question of whether Jeb Bush should be answering hypothetical questions as a candidate

    3. Massive carnage on an Amtrak route they frequent won’t stop Congress from making cuts to infrastructure spending

    4. We’re still giving out the death penalty, a discussion

    5. Mitt Romney and Evander Holyfield tickle-fight for charity

    6. Andrew Keegan brings us the most Los Angeles story ever written

    BTL #154 - BIBLE BOMBSHELL - 5/12/15

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Seymour Hersh bombshell: Osama bin Laden is still dead.  Carry on.

    2. Hillary Clinton’s new media strategy is to pretend there is no media

    3. Lap band surgery was probably cheaper than Chris Christie’s football game concessions

    4. The Sheldon Adelson solo primary claims another victim: common sense

    5. Republican candidates hawk Bible cures for your diabetes and tax woes because...pseudoscience

    6. Somebody finally stood their ground and shot George Zimmerman in the face

    7. Texas does the most Texas-y thing even attempted

    2. The Ted Cruz Super PAC trilogy teases a mythical tale of blockbuster proportions

    3. Why is Lindsay Graham still single?  Fox News and Brain Trust Live discuss.

    4. Hillary, Huma, and the whole Scooby gang begin their storied road trip to rural Iowa with a burrito, a Liz Warren compliment, and a dream

    5. We’re 91% closer to having a Chick-fil-a in the White House thanks to Lindsey Graham

    6. Animals are literally falling from the sky, an in-depth analysis

    BTL #150 - THE ANNIVERSARY BONANZA (GUEST: GRANT SLOSS) - 4/13/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Hillary is IN...but ONLY if you watched until the very end of that Kaiser Permanente video she’s passing off as a campaign announcement

    2. Rand Paul is also in, and he’s already beating Hillary.  Lindsay Graham is also in, but he’s only running against Rand.  Former Republican Lincoln Chaffee’s also in, but just to make sure there’s someone to Hillary’s...left?

    3. Republicans and racists alike have finally found a shooting of an unarmed black man they can denounce.  So...progress?

    4. Rahm Emanuel just barely avoids being Christine Quinn’d, can now victoriously continue closing schools and free health clinics.  Hooray!

    5. Tom Cotton has a detailed plan for Iran.  Step one: Bomb them.  Step two...actually there’s no step two.  It’s a simple plan, really.

    6. Finally, we’ll take a terrifying walk down memory lane and revisit the news of BTL #1!
