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

In Which We Discuss:

1. Obama enters a “giving 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. GOP’s only strategy is the one thing they strategized to not do again.  All hail #shutdown2015, the remix.

3. Centrists and Liberals 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, so 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.  But besides causing a real #shirtstorm, we might not have accomplished much.  Turns out sun is the missing and only ingredient in a successful solar energy space probe.

BTL #131 - NOTHING CAN’T BE UNDONE - 11/10/14

In Which We Discuss:


1. As far as elections go, we’re not going to say everything is hopeless, but we are going to say that you need to do better next time, America.  We’ve blogged about how here: Post-Election Blues: 14 Ways To Get Even


2. Voters everywhere voted both for and against everything they stand for.  Hey voters,  you don’t get to have two opinions on the same issue.


3. Lame Duck session shaping up to look more like a healthy and virile duck session.


4. SCOTUS invites a serious case of deja vu with new high-profile cases that suspiciously like the old ones.


5. We now have 3,000 troops in Iraq, but don’t worry, they aren’t “one the ground.”  The are just soldiers deployed to a war-torn region who have no particular mandate or agenda.  Nothing to see here.


6. Goodbye Michele Bachmann and Steve Stockman, hello Glen Grothman, who will carry on your tradition of rhyming last names and insane agenda.

BTL #130 - THE SOAP OPERA EPIDEMIC - 11/3/14

In Which We Discuss:


1. We’re going to lose the Senate, guys.  Sorry we’ve been lying to you.  Cali sun and whatnot.


2. Colorado sneaks a personhood amendment onto the ballot by convincing voters it will save their unborn babies from drunk drivers.  Screw you, Colorado.


3. Do not mess with Kaci Hicox.  She WILL take a one-hour rural bike ride if she damn well pleases.  Also, she still doesn’t have #Ebola.


4. North Korea is on the frontlines of the war against Japenese Ebola and South Korean Soap Operas, both epidemics invented by North Korea.

BTL #129 - IT KNOWS WHERE YOU LIVE - 10/27/14

In Which We Discuss:


1. Another school shooting, but instead of gun control, lets talk about EBOLA!  It knows where you live.


2. Alaskan pollsters just can’t know who lives in Alaska and how to reach them.  Hopefully next year’s races won’t be so close and they can get back to their real love: drunken limo brawling.


3. Fearing a repeat of Bush-Clinton, Liz Warren is not not running for president.  She is instead aware of the many “possibilities that the future might bring.”


4. In military tactical news, man on man massage is how the terrorists win.

Every once in a while, reality stars are forced to live in reality.  RIP Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

BTL #128 - SOCIAL EXPERIMENTS - 10/21/14

In Which We Discuss:


1. If @LenaDunham’s book and Lila Nordstrom’s memory are any any guide, mock slavery social experiments were how history got taught to a generation of NYC kids in the 90s.


2. Newly appointed Ebola czar is not the czar John McCain would have picked if he was in favor of appointing czars which he’s not so stop asking him about it.


3. U.S. practices favorite kind of armchair diplomacy - air-dropping “lethal aid” on rebels with ambiguous goals.


4. Politico poll proves that it’s easy to be panicked about everything when you know nothing about anything.


5. This week in #HillaryPillory  - Thought-crime strikes again, this time care of @Harpers 


6. #SCOTUS faces their biggest gender divide yet...and not over gender issues.  #VoterID

BTL #127 - ARMED WITH A SANDWICH - 10/13/14

In Which We Discuss:


1. New revelations in #PalinBrawl2014 reveal that Palins rented that stretch hummer just to drunkenly crash a stranger’s birthday party.


2. As of this week, Ebola is a disease you can get without having gone to Liberia or Sierra Leone.  Time to stop making out with strangers.

3. We know the middle east is confusing, but are we sure we’ve gotten our geography right with the whole ISIS airstrike campaign?

4. St. Louis cops and residents disagree on whether you can be armed with a deadly sandwich.

5. This week in Senate election news, Independent candidates are rousing the electorate’s weirdest rabble.

6.  Dick Morris is still in the business of making totally wacko, inaccurate predictions.

BTL #126 - DISCOMFORT SAGA - 10/6/14

In Which We Discuss:

2. Teenager-led Hong Kong pro-democracy rallies are the most mature thing that’s happening in Chinese politics right now.

3. In the midst of the Dear Leader “discomfort” saga of 2014, three senior North Korean officials took a journey to the land of the Choco-Pie for a weekend of cookie gluttony and peace talks.

4. Secret Service still roughly as capable as Lila’s last run-in with them would suggest

5. Mitt Romney continues to “not” run for President by being in Iowa and stumping with wingnut conspiracy theorist Joni Ernst.

6. Russian bank hackers might have ties to the Russian government, which might be the most Russian story ever told.

In Which We Discuss:

1. A couple of ISIS bombings and Republicans are already excited about the prospect of boots on the ground in unnecessary war.

2. Thanks to Senate discord, Eric Holder’s resignation might end up just being for show.

3. After Obama’s fake #lattesalute gaffe, how long will we have to wait for a pumpkin spice latte salute campaign from Starbucks (#PSL).

4. The struggle is real for would-be murderers who just happen to be Muslim.  It’s hard to be notorious when Al Qaeda gets all the credit for your crimes. 

5. Value Voters can’t decide whether gay marriage is just boring or a scourge on society, but they all seem to know who Ben Carson is.

6. Self-appointed Real-Life Disney Princess sues Disney for stealing her tale of having a sister and living in a village with doors.

In Which We Discuss:


1. What do Ban Ki Moon, Bernie Sanders, and Sting all have in common?  They all went a’ climate marching this weekend!

2. We finally figured out what it takes to make GOP-ers fund the government: war resolutions.  Watch out world!

3. In Obamacare news, despite GOP scare-mongering, people can be trusted to pay for products they’ve purchased, just like has always worked in the past.  Hooray capitalism!

4. Secret Service combat training and sniper rifles are not enough to stop one Texas man with an important message about the sci-fi apocalypse

5. J.K. Rowling wins the day in an uber-expensive campaign against two obese Scottish lottery winners looking to buy a nation

6. Shonda Rhimes takes on the New York Times TV critic over a super un-clever play on words

BTL #123 - LIPSTICK ON A TRACK - 9/15/14

In Which We Discuss:


1. The Palin family’s extracurriculars prove that you can put lipstick on a drunk shirtless man giving the finger to everybody, but it’s still a Track Palin

2. The US may or may not be at war with ISIS, but it’s definitely at war with itself over foreign policy semantics

3. Left-wing “money for schools, not for war” demand takes on bizarrely literal meaning

4. America learns an important lesson: refusing to acknowledge a political opponent named Zephyr Teachout is a fool’s errand

5. Hillary Clinton proves she’s running for president by pretending to believe “steak frys” are a real thing

6. CNN was right all along- you definitely will die of ebola

7. Like your 13 year-old cousin, Mark Sanford breaks up with his girlfriend on Facebook.
