6/20/22 - Diet Pepsi Drunk

In Which We Discuss:

1. The June corporate appropriation holiday bonanza continues!

2. Biden will try literally anything to make America think he’s President Bartlett.

3. Rudy Giuliani didn’t knowingly break the law, he was just drunk on Diet Pepsi.

4. Can we please put a news embargo on reporting CA election results until we actually have California election results?

5. When will Democrats learn: Part 435 of our ongoing series.

6. Have you ever wondered if the current inflation was caused by something other than that one time the government sent you a measly check? We have.

BTL #351 - Super Duper Missile - 5/18/20

In Which We Discuss:

1. House Dems Heroes Act finally honors the heroes among us.  Lobbyists and rich people.

2. The Nordstrom/Thornburg task force to study the validity of the Biden/Sanders task forces is now in session.

3. Dems will not let Coronavirus trample their record of losing winnable elections.

4. Everyone looking for a good reason to not vote for Biden got one...directly from Joe Biden.

5. We’re struggling about how to make a super duper missile joke when the president has already made it for us.

BTL #333 - Judiciary Committee - 12/9/19

In Which We Discuss:

1. The impeachment hearings move to Judiciary, where more staid professionals argued that Trump’s legal shenanigans are also illegal crimes.

2. Giuliani’s genius plan for this week was to go to Kiev because that way he can commit different crimes to avoid suspicion about the stuff he’s already done.

3. Duncan Hunter and his pet rabbit Eggburt are leaving Congress.

4. Somebody has actually polled California only to discover that we all love Bernie Sanders.

5. Biden challenges Iowan man to a pushup contest because, again, he’s not sure how running for president works.

6. AOC beat Amazon just by having the gaul to suggest that letting corporations blackmail major cities is a waste of resources.

BTL #315 - SHE HAS A PLAN FOR THAT - 5/6/19

In Which We Discuss:

1. William Barr doesn’t like Mueller’s attitude when it comes to William Barr’s lying

2. Remember the days when we were finally announcing who WASN’T going to run for president?  Those days were nice.

3. Elizabeth Warren has a plans for that, and a t-shirt for that

4. No one is running for Senate because everyone is running for president and, frankly, that math isn’t promising

5. Cory Booker is committed to halting the change he’s already been a cosponsor for

BTL #281 - GOT A TWEET - 3/14/18

In Which We Discuss:

1. Today in weird Trumpisms, Rex Tillerson “got a Tweet” and now the Kochs control the entire world

2. It’s better to just go ahead and double down on your random non-sequitur rant, right?

3. After a brutal two week stretch, nobody is left in the White House except the second tier idiots

4. The GOP has solved the Russia crisis by denying its existence so...more exciting elections to come?

5. Betsy Devos cannot remember if she knows what a school is, but she has heard of choice and she’s for it

6. Is Jeff Flake going to be our next president?

BTL #253 - THE HANDSHAKE - 7/17/17

In Which We Discuss:

1. Trump and McConnell have hurt John McCain’s brain so badly at this point that it literally clogged

2. Not even the health insurance industry is as giddy about returning us to pre-ACA days of bankruptcy and death as our government’s own Tom Price

3. Either Donald Trump is lying to us, or he’s hired clairvoyant lawyers. One of those seems more likely though...

4. You haven’t seen a handshake until you’ve seen Emmanuel Marcon and Donald Trumps’ three-way knuckle-buster

5. Donald Trump is winning at Chris Christie’s game of losing. Bigly.

6. A completely unremarkable, totally average day in Florida
