    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!

    2. The weather messed with Texas and...Texas folded immediately.

    1. It’s Occupy Wall Street, but instead of sleeping on a park bench, you get to make millions of dollars!

    2. Democrats continue to compromise with themselves over direct payments

    3. “Unity” with the GOP is not the same thing as unity with the American people

    4. Every day we’re a step closer to Donald Trump potentially representing himself in his second Impeachment trial

    5. Jewish Space Lasers: Where do you buy them and how do you use them?

    6. Schumer is a man who really, really, really doesn’t want to get primaried in 2022. Let’s dash that hope.

    BTL #370 - VIP Superspreader Event [w/ Special Guest Grant Sloss] - 10/5/20

    In Which We Discuss [w/ special guest Grant Sloss]:

    1. White House host nation’s first VIP-only, black-tie superspreader event. 

    2. Trump now attempting to die of COVID in a last-ditch attempt to get out of a massive IRS bill and crushing debt.

    3. The first presidential debate (and likely the last) was, in the words of Jake Tapper, “a hot mess inside a dumpster fire, inside a train wreck.”

    4. Cal Cunningham is part of the exact kind of lame sexting scandal you’d expect from a DNC-backed moderate. But don’t worry, Thom Tillis has COVID.

    5. Another year, another set of Prop 13 battles hit the California ballot.

    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

    2. Kenosha police are eager to earn the approval of a 17 year old vigilante murderer

    3. The season premiere of Biden Unbunkered is coming September 8th.  Time and location TBD. Airing: Probably nowhere because he doesn’t know how to grab a headline. Check your local listings.

    4. If you live in Massachusetts, cast your ballot now!

    5. Election Security: We don’t have that anymore.

    6. And is Melania Trumps’ “Operation Block Ivanka” the only successful scheme currently being carried out inside the White House?
