    BTL #387 - No Defense - 2/15/21

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We joked Donald Trump would not need an impeachment defense to get off scott free and he didn’t have one.

    2. Blowback for GOP convictors. Not yet enough blowback for Mitch McConnell’s open hypocrisy.

    3. Trump’s COVID was more serious than we were told. And yet, it was also less serious than it should have been.

    4. I guess local GOP officials would be the ones to know if Antifa caused the Capitol riots because tons of them were active participants.

    5. In the Biden administration, threatening the press gets you suspended, not promoted.

    6. Weather. It’s everywhere. We’ll tell you what to do.

    3. Joe Biden’s version of "Infrastructure Week" might include actual policy

    BTL #379 - Bridge To The Next Generation - 12/14/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. White House adds a second bad bill to our grand American stimulus mess. Current count is bad bills: 2, good bills: 0.

    2. Even SCOTUS wants there to be a government

    3. Biden promised his administration would be a “bridge to the next generation.” We didn’t realize he only meant Boomers. 

    4. People of various levels of fun and not-fun are announcing runs for office

    5. Let me just defend Iowa for a moment: It was the DNC that actually ruined the caucuses.

    6. It’s too bad we waited for Facebook to ruin America before deciding to break it up

    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 #362 - Rabid Bats - 8/10/20

    In Which We Discuss:

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

    3. No matter who you are and where you sit on the political spectrum, you will be pissed off by the Democratic National Convention.

    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.
