BTL #231 - #NeverForget to #NeverRemember - 2/7/17

This week on BTL, when will the powers that be agree that America has been through enough?!  This week we did it all: re-lived the horrors of election 2016 in football form, re-lived the horrors of Antonin Scalia in Trump-SCOTUS-pick form, celebrated the alt-facts version of Black History Month (thanks white people for creating black history!), commemorated the worst imaginary terrorist attack to ever hit US soil (#NeverRemember), and accidentally thwarted a coup attempt by cleverly allowing a complete idiot to attempt a coup with any professional assistance.  Though this week felt like seven months in thought-time, we can confirm that it's only been one week in real time and the fact that we made it through is certainly something to celebrate.  Join the fun!

This week on BTL, it's our last chance to reach you before we all VOTE!  VOTING!  VOTING IS SO FUN!  YOU SHOULD DO IT!  We're here with all the latest polling, updates on the senate, info on the props, suggestions about where and how to get involved in #GOTV efforts, and so so so so much excitement about voting!  So much!  Plus, did you hear that recent FBI emails nonsense is already over?  What a relief!  Another relief: Trump's Twitter privileges were revoked.  Who knew it was that easy?  Tune in for it all and whatever you do, figure out where you're going to park BEFORE you get to the polling place.  It's so much easier.

This week on BTL...Donald Trump has his worst week ever and Hillary Clinton has her best week thanks to a complete lack of contact with, in the world's of Duce Trump, "the paparazzi."  Plus we've got updates from the Green Party Convention, the Libertarian Town Hall on CNN, and the scientific experts at Hollywood Reporter hellbent on bringing us the Donald Trump finger-size-proof we've all been waiting for.  Thank God none they aren't making euphemism for the size of another body part, right?

BTL #206 - Run For Office - 6/20/16

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.

Two Things We Love Collided Yesterday

Two Things We Love Collided Yesterday

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.
