    BTL #129 - IT KNOWS WHERE YOU LIVE - 10/27/14

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Another school shooting, but instead of gun control, lets talk about EBOLA!  It knows where you live!


    2. Alaskan pollsters just can’t know who lives in Alaska and how to reach them.  Hopefully next year’s races won’t be so close and they can get back to their real love: drunken limo brawling.


    3. Fearing a repeat of Bush-Clinton, Liz Warren is not not running for president.  She is instead aware of the many “possibilities that the future might bring.”


    4. In military tactical news, man on man massage is how the terrorists win.


    5. Every once in a while, reality stars are forced to live in reality.  RIP Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. The Palin family’s extracurriculars prove that you can put lipstick on a drunk shirtless man giving the finger to everybody, but it’s still a Track Palin

    2. The US may or may not be at war with ISIS, but it’s definitely at war with itself over foreign policy semantics

    3. Left-wing “money for schools, not for war” demand takes on bizarrely literal meaning

    4. America learns an important lesson: refusing to acknowledge a political opponent named Zephyr Teachout is a fool’s errand

    5. Hillary Clinton proves she’s running for president by pretending to believe “steak frys” are a real thing

    6. CNN was right all along- you definitely will die of ebola

    7. Like your 13 year-old cousin, Mark Sanford breaks up with his girlfriend on Facebook.

    BTL # 122 - FAKE FRY - 8/25/14

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Obama administration casually wonders if we should stop arming our local police forces with tanks.  They’ll look into it...

    3. #HillaryPillory : In the face of challenges from “fringe isolationist” Rand Paul, DNC assures Americans that we will definitely go to war if Hillary is elected.  Whew!

    4. Hillary Clinton to headline the Harkin “steak fry,” a kind of “fry” that is mysterious to even born-and-bred Iowan Brent Thornburg.  

    5. Unsurprisingly, a MN anti-gay crusader and GOP congressional candidate knows way too much about gay sex.

    6. Updates on all of the most important pop culture events of the week: #Jessie Williams, #GreysAnatomy, #TaylorSwift, #MichaelSam, #IceBucketChallenge and more!

    3. In VA reform fight, entirely reasonable bill supported by Socialists and non-Socialists alike makes its way into rainbow and healthcare-hating Tea Party territory

    4. Todd Akin returns just in time to legitimately rape the GOP’s 2014 election prospects.


    5. Science finally proves what we’ve always hoped was true -- that conservatives are biologically different.  Too bad they don’t believe in science.


    6. This week on Hillary Pillory: Hillary Clinton carries W’s famously compassionate conservative mantle at a true meeting of the minds - an Insurance industry confab.


    7. Apparently Silicon Valley technology is now in the business of manufacturing voters to sign the 6 Californias petition.


    8. Also, SINKHOLES.  So, like, that.
