    BTL #341 - Super Tuesday (w/ Guest Carla Nordstrom) - 3/9/20

    In Which We Discuss (W/ Special Guest Carla Nordstrom):

    1. The empire consolidated just in time to dash the hopes of anybody dreaming of a future more promising than “not Trump.” We compare these developments to the chaos that led to 1968's infamous Democratic convention.

    2. We moved up our primary but California’s Super Tuesday somehow still didn’t count.

    3. With last week’s carnage, the Senate races are our new raison d’etre. Senate Project 2020 is a go!

    4. Luckily, Tuesday March 10th brings new possibilities...

    5. But we’ll have to make it through Coronavirus to get there.

    6. One thing that’s keeping our emotional health in check: We beat MSNBC. Chris Matthews is no more.

    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.
