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...

2. ISIS delusionally believes they might take over India and, hell, why now throw in Saudi Arabia too?

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!

BTL # 121 - HILARIOUS DRUNK PEOPLE - 8/18/14

In Which We Discuss:


1.  RIP Robin Williams.  Your death is at least bringing attention to the dangers of mental illness, which is something even repeated tragic school shootings couldn’t.


2. Ferguson, MO is just the latest in a series of war-torn regions that the American military, ie. a municipal police force, is having to “save” via ruthless military intervention.


3. Rick Perry really doesn’t like hilarious drunk people, is obviously no fun.


4. Nouri al-Maliki is so over it, realizes that fixing Iraq will require somebody with a desire to do so.  


5. Do not even think about nominating us for the ice bucket challenge.  We mean it.


6. As if the fear of your flight just disappearing into thin air isn’t enough, we now have proof that armless pilots are captaining planes.

In Which We Discuss:

4. Chris McDaniel finds voting irregularities in the form of seeing black people at the poles, claims Cochran race-baited.

7. NRA blind to the issues with arming blind people.

BTL #117 - HOW MANY CALIFORNIAS IS ENOUGH? - 7/22/14

In Which We Discuss:

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.

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