1/19/22 - Veep is Supposed to Be a Parody

In Which We Discuss:

1. Extremism, according to Joe Manchin, is you voting.

3. Note to Kamala Harris and all future Vice Presidents: Veep is a parody.

4. 2024 is shaping up to have…the same primary as 2020?

5. Eric Adams is not even good at nepotism.

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.

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.
