BTL #249 - Long-Winded Details - 6/21/17

This week on the podcast, travel through random election Tuesday with us as we learn the results of the Georgia and South Carolina special elections! Plus some thoughts on the AHCA, why it's bad, and how we can stop it.  Also, the speculation can finally cease -- we've heard Jared Kushner's voice and it's both super generic and not at all what we expected. Come for the election fun, stay for the healthcare!

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.

BTL #215 - We're Back! - 10/3/16

Welcome back listeners! It's been an exciting three weeks are we're ready to dive back in.  We fit this week's record between readings of the 233 page California Official Voters Information Guide (233!  That many!), and it's jam packed! We've got the dirt on the first presidential debate and the ensuing melodramas of The Donald v. Women, The Donald v. Taxes, and The Donald v. Twitter.  Plus, 2016 is the year of the non-endorsement, Californians might not live to see the outcome of this horrible presidential race (earthquakes around every corner), and the Senate is furious that Obama doesn’t control the laws of time and space.  It was a great week for our triumphant return and we can't wait to dive in!

 

Two Things We Love Collided Yesterday

Two Things We Love Collided Yesterday

Yesterday, two of our obsessions,  gun control and real-life, non-silent, non-procedural filibusters collided as Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT, Newly Minted Hero) held the senate floor for 14+ hours to demand a vote on two of the most minor and widely supported gun control measures on the planet.

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!  

"Experience" and "Good Ideas" are not the same thing

"Experience" and "Good Ideas" are not the same thing

It’s time for us to have a chat with America about the value of Hillary’s foreign policy “experience," because “experience” and “good ideas” are not interchangeable.

This week on BTL...at what point do we get to start calling the NRA a terrorist organization?  Is it now?  Do we have to wait until we hit 400 mass shootings a year?  Luckily for us, the GOP proposed all sorts of strategies to deal with this week’s mass shootings including...outright denial, misplaced blame, and voting no on common sense gun legislation.  You be you, America!  Actually though, don't.  Other genius GOP ideas's this week: asking their GOP Senate candidates to wear cooler clothes and dig up tree roots, repealing Obamacare in new and exciting ways, and getting rid of that terrible foreign scourge: hummus.  All this and lots more!
