Many of us are still less than enthused by the Clinton/Kaine ticket, but as your Facebook friends rant about voters who haven’t gone full-Clinton being traitors to the human race, they might be forgetting that that there are thousands of ways to fight the rise of Il Duce without putting time and money into his heavily compromised opponent. Here are some ideas.
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.
This week on BTL, we say goodbye to our favorite third-place winner, #LittleMarco Rubio. After what can only be described as a totally predictable and fully expected loss in his home state of Florida, Rubio leaves the title of "Cuban" to Sen. Ted Cruz. Also leaving the race is Rubio's ambition to ever serve in public office again. See ya never Private Citizen Rubio! Luckily the Rubio-less GOP has a foolproof plan to defeat Trump. It involves claiming that they have a plan to defeat Trump and starting the hashtag #NeverTrump and the only thing you need to know about it is that it's totally going to work. Right? RIGHT?! And then there's some non-election news for once. Can you imagine?! Remember those days? Take a walk down memory lane with us! All that and tons more this week on a new BTL podcast!
This week on an all-new BTL, Donald Trump's Nevada blowout saw him promising that he's going to bring us “so much everything” when he’s president. If "everything" involves more of his accidental slam poetry, then we're in. If it involves more racism, however, we're not. Will update. Plus, Thursday's GOP Debate was more bananas than ever and showed an emerging trend in the GOP field: campaigning exclusively via insult comedy. (Policy proposals are so 2015.) Also, anybody who’s anybody in whatever the opposite of MENSA is endorsed Donald Trump this week, Clinton had a BLOWOUT win in South Carolina, and Super Tuesday is upon us! (All signs point to Texas is proving once again that it can’t be trusted.) Then there's the NY Times' sudden Clinton takedown, some intelligentsia speculation that for once isn't about Beyonce, and the newest kind of militia to look out for in the post-Bundy world: toddlers. It's yet another week for the books and we have it all here!
This week on the podcast, Carla Nordstrom joins us for our coverage of the Nevada Caucus results, the fully bonkers South Carolina GOP primary results, a finally tally of what money can't buy you care of a now exclamation point-less Jeb, and Donald Trump's latest sparring partner, Pope Francis. Naturally we didn't forget to bring you this week's crazy Scalia conspiracy theories and make sure to listen to Carla's editorial on young voters and the Democratic Party! Yet another can't-miss week and more are on the way!
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!
This week on BTL, literally everything happened. The Iowa Caucuses! A Democratic Debate! A Republican Debate! It was a bonanza of everything we love and hold dear. We've got caucus results, polling heading into New Hampshire (it's on Tuesday!), and rampant speculation about South Carolina, plus, find our why we're totally over Chris Wallace, totally into DeRay McKesson, and totally pissed at Gloria Steinem. And if all that wasn't enough, Sinkhole Radio is back! What a whirlwind!
