This week on BTL...welp, the shutdown happened. But so did the Women's March so, you know, we've been pulled in lots of directions. We have a full breakdown of both events, plus a very rare BTL disagreement! That and the GREATEST STORY TO GRACE THE NEWSWAVES SINCE BRIDGEGATE. Don't miss out.
This week on BTL...GOSSIP! Nothing like some good old infighting among the Democrats to get us excited about the endless casual insult and loaded compliment possibilities! Plus we've got primary results from Kentucky and Oregon, an attempt to refute accepted science (Republicans get away with that all the time so why not us?) and detailed reports of the greatest day in Congressional history. Finally, we're almost as cool as the British! Oh, and Oklahoma is up to legit shenanigans in their quest to rid the state of doctors and women...or at least that's what we assume their crazy abortion bill is all about. That and tons more if you click RIGHT HERE!
In this week’s Meet the Candidates, we’ll take a look at the suddenly-surging Ted Cruz, the *other* Cuban in the GOP presidential race. Cruz is the GOP establishment’s biggest fear since he's rising in the polls and willing to throw anybody under the bus in order to keep that momentum going, his own party included. Luckily, another equal-opportunity bus-thrower and birther/racism fanatic Donald Trump might not let voters forget that Mr. Cruz, unlike Obama, was actually born abroad. Will his Canadian-ness take him out of the running? Will his seething hatred of governance do the trick instead? Only time will tell!
When, in the course of daily conversation, we mention calling, emailing, or visiting politicians about the issues we care about, we’re regularly shocked to discover that very few young people know they have the ability and most importantly the right to pay their public representatives a visit.
Yes, we said visit. In person. At their office. Uninvited.
This week on the podcast, after 11 hours of Benghazi questioning, Hillary Clinton proves she has the stamina of a champion filibusterer. Too bad we didn't know this while she was in the Senate! And if this week wasn't already good enough week for her campaign, two Democratic contestants and one would-be contestant dropped out! Bye Linc! Plus, sorry Jeb!, it turns out that all the money in the world can’t buy you...money for your campaign. All this plus Ben Carson and the confusing logic of the Iowa electorate, Paul Ryan's forthcoming political suicide, and a walk down memory lane with family values and prostitute lover David Vitter!
