This week on the podcast, it's tax reform time! (Or it would be if the GOP didn't keep shooting themselves in the foot.) Also, now that the GOP is dying to have a pederast in the Senate, harassment accusations and hypocritical Twitter lectures are flying! Let's see what Trump what kind of trouble Trump can get into with those extra 140 letters! Plus, a real life hobby ghost hunter is coming to a court near you...if you live in Alabama. Of course.
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...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!
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 a special bi-coastal BTL, we're joining the chorus of people who think it's time for Debbie Wasserman Schultz to give up the ghost and leave the DNC in less compromised/incompetant hands. Though even her Saturday debate scheduling couldn't stop us from sort of semi-watching the Dem Debate, most of what we took away involved Martin O'Malley being super irrelevant and a little sad. One debate we didn't snore through, however, was last week's GOP debate because GUYS it was 25% fresh shenanigans (though, sadly, also 75% warmongering)! Tune in for our rundown of both debates and more before we disappear for two full weeks into the Christmas ether!
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.
