BTL #228 - Extra Rights - 1/16/17

This week on BLT...will anybody actually be at the inauguration on Friday?  So far it looks like it's going to be Hillary Clinton and Code Pink.  Plus, Trump will save the ungrateful voters in John Lewis’ totally functioning district whether they want him to or not, and Ben Carson will stop all those pesky gay people from getting their extra rights.  What a relief!  Meanwhile, Cory Booker shoots himself in the 2020 foot,  the GOP signals their plans to take away your healthcare are just as ill conceived as you imagined,  and nobody does a press conference like Donald Trump and a stack of blank paper.  Bonus: we did it, America!  #GoldenShowers has now officially trended on Twitter.  Come for the news, stay for the...news!

This week on BTL, it's everything we didn't cover in our mid-week special election edition!  We've got the latest on President-Elect Trump's (ick it hurt to say that!) first week as a legitimate person, and he's already appointed a white nationalist to his cabinet so things are going predictably.  We do have a little good news too, though!  Come for the horrifying Trump update, stay for the local election results!  Keep on keepin' on, guys!  There's nothing else we can do.

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?

This week on BTL, we do our best to make up for our one-week absence!  We try our hand at reporting breaking news, plus we've got a look ahead at the DNC and a look behind at the (terrifying, disorganized, slapstick-ridden) RNC.  All that plus a discussion on the meaning of your vote and when voter outreach works and doesn't, plus an exciting (read: horrible) update on the week in racism.  And jokes.  We've got jokes too!

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.
