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.
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.
This week on BLT...it's chaos at the Nevada Democratic Convention! Sit-ins, security, fleeing...all the best kinds of excitement! Plus, we've got election results from West Virginia and Nebraska, a week of Donald Trump trying to figure out how to be a frontrunner (answer: insist that you're very smart but don't confirm anything else), and SCOTUS updates from the a newly 4-4 court! Apparently their new strategy is to stop making rulings until we can break the stalemate. All that plus the intersection of politics and gossip like you've never experienced it before! Welcome to Rep. Grayson v. Sen. Reid, the ultimate battle. It's yet another week of glory, so don't miss it!
This week on BTL...we've got yet another Super Tuesday coming up, this time starring Pennsylvania. (Cue the moment we figure out that the Pennsylvania primary laws are legitimately undemocratic.) Then follow us through a rundown of the upcoming year's best Senate races - it's not even June and already it's drama as far as the eye can see in several key races! Plus we have the beginning of Veepstaes 2015, the latest on the New York primary results and election fraud accusations, the week in news about 90 year-olds, and so much more!
This week on a special bi-coastal BTL, all hell breaks loose in the GOP primary in an ever-mounting flurry of desperate party maneuvers and bizarre Donald Trump quotes. Christ Christie has been kidnapped and cannot be saved so let's not worry about him anymore, but is anybody going to tell Rubio that his time might be up? Also, a rowdy Democratic Debate in Flint, MI, election results from all the "super" election days a person could ask for, CPAC, Ted Cruz's booger-eating, and so much more! How is it possible that every week tops the last? We're exhausted, you guys, but we do it all for you!
What a week! It began with the best day of our lives - the New Hampshire primaries and ended with the surprise death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. He was a complicated man, scourge to liberals, BFF to RBG. knower of real pizza, not-knower of the rights of women, gays, minorities, and most other human creatures to have healthcare, the right to marry, or services and dignity of any kind. The GOP is honoring him the best they know how - by refusing to do their job. Alex Jones and Matt Drudge are honoring him the best way they know how - by spreading conspiracy theories about his death. We're honoring him the best way we know how - by bringing you news on the most raucous GOP debate to date, the upcoming Nevada caucuses and South Carolina primaries, and so much more! It's yet another rollercoaster week in this unbelievably exciting election cycle!
