This week on BTL, we know it's hot and hard to focus on anything but popsicles and swimming pools, but we'd love some answers regarding what our actual election results were here! 1.5 million ballots still uncounted? Let's fix that! Then our two great loves, gun control and filibusters, collided last week for an epic democratic-led 15 hour gun control filibuster that warmed our hearts and lifted our spirits but possibly wont result in any actual change. And those are only two of the zillions of things we covered this week. We'd think of more to tease but it's too hot. Just listen. We promise it'll be fun.
Yesterday, two of our obsessions, gun control and real-life, non-silent, non-procedural filibusters collided as Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT, Newly Minted Hero) held the senate floor for 14+ hours to demand a vote on two of the most minor and widely supported gun control measures on the planet.
We encourage anybody in a state voting tomorrow to show up to the polls and vote for whoever you damn well please even if you've been told nothing matters anybody and your time would be better spent staring a 24 hour news coverage and eating ice cream. Don't allow your vote to not matter by not casting it.
Running for president is a job for a people-person, which is why Ted Cruz left the campaign with little to show beyond a treasure-trove of awkward physical comedy moments. Bye byeeeeeee Belzubub!
