    BTL #337 - The Last Iowa Caucus - 2/10/20

    [*UPDATED: Audio Issue Fixed*] In Which We Discuss:

    1. We traveled halfway across the country to witness the last Iowa Caucus!

    2. Unfortunately, no one has witnessed any actual results from said Iowa Caucus. 

    3. Taxpayers donate facilities for extensive Trump campaign rally.  Unfortunately for him, Nancy Pelosi’s meme game was strong.

    4. Mitt Romney attempts to save his obituary from the ravages of the Trump era during Senate impeachment vote.

    5. We now grant ABC all future Dem Debates.  That’s enough flying graphics and Wolf Blitzer for this cycle.

    BTL #318 - MATH IS VINDICATED - 6/3/19

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Robert Mueller holds emergency press conference to remind us that unlike Barr, he has, in fact, read his own report.
