In Which We Discuss:

1. Snappy State of the Union is followed by bread-bags and wig-hair in world’s most dramatic drop-off. 


2. Greatest event in the history of the world descends upon Iowa, showering the state in racist quips, Hillary hatred, and groundbreaking (well...incorrect) word use. 

3. Future car-elevator companions Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney share a gentlemanly lunch, studiously avoid topics of any sort.

BTL #138 - CREDIBLE CONTENDERS - 1/20/15

In Which We Discuss:

1. The SOTU is Tuesday, and you should watch just to see two things: clapping theatrics and Biden’s facial expressions as he descends into boredom


2. Upon hearing that income inequality is a thing, car elevator-owner Mitt Romney tries to care a little but fails to convince even his own party of his change-of-heart

BTL #136 - CONCEDING TO GOOD IDEAS - 12/22/14

2. Governor Andrew Cuomo finally confirms what everyone with flammable drinking water has known for ages, bans fracking in New York

4. NY Mag follows in Rolling Stone’s lazy footsteps by not checking any sources in Stuyvesant student’s fake $72 million dollar stock market fortune.

5. Mitt Romney still leads republican presidential polls?  Thankfully Donald Trump looks to challenge him in a battle for the nomination, and title of most out of touch uber-rich old white man in America.

1. CIA torture report proves that a) we’ve been in the grasp of a huge sneaking evil for years and b) Dianne Feinstein has an ounce of fight left in her after all.

4. Pig diarrhea among the many pressing items of national interest addressed by the new, amendment-laden house spending bill.

In Which We Discuss:

1. Protests erupt in cities nationwide over...cigarette taxes?  No, wait, that’s not right... #icantbreath

3. Obamacare proves, yet again, that simple math and logic have evaded GOP politicos, even in regard to a plan they thought up

4. Rolling Stone fact-checkers set anti-campus rape activist back one zillion years.  Should somebody call Aaron Sorkin?  It sounds like Rolling Stone editors need an ethics monologue.

6. North Korea’s tourism website proves that they weren’t responsible for the Sony hack

BTL #132 - SHUTDOWN, THE REMIX - 11/17/14

In Which We Discuss:

1. Obama enters a “gives no fucks” zone and promises executive action on #Immigration, his support for #NetNeutrality, and a major climate deal with #China.  Let the lame duck games begin!


2. The GOP’s only strategy is the one thing they strategized to not do again.  All hail #shutdown2015, the remix.

3. Centrists and Liberals are about to throw down Tea Party style as Democrats reckon with how to not get shitstomped in future elections.

4. Still don’t have healthcare?  What are you thinking?!  (Also, open enrollment is in session!  You could totally fix this!)

5. ISIS still in the business of producing exceptionally long, disgusting videos.  We’re starting to doubt their much-touted social media savvy.  16 minutes is too long, guys!

6. Well we landed on a comet.  (Yay?)  But besides causing a real #shirtstorm, we might not have accomplished much.  Turns out that sunlight is a really important ingredient in launching a successful solar energy space probe.
