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.
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!
