A list of websites that can help you identify downticket races to get involved in.
On this week's BTL, we talked voting, third parties, Libertarians, Ralph Nader, and more with GREEN PARTY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JILL STEIN! Check out our chat with her, some dispatches from her Pershing Square rally, and of course all the bafoonery around the second presidential debate, Donald Trump pussy-grabbing, Hillary Clinton wall street speeches, and everything else that happened in this absurdly packed week!
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!
This week on BTL, we begin with a yearly tradition: Brent telling Lila the story of Easter only to have Lila forget the story by the time the podcast is posted. Will she ever learn? Tune in to find out. Then we have some new superlative primary days of our own invention: #LooneyTuesday and #SupercalifragilisticexpialidociousSaturday. Plus, we've got the latest on Obama's trip to Cuba, the (too) many terrorist attacks that went down this week week, and a rundown of 13 Democratic presidential candidates you may not be aware of and probably should try not to learn more about!
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!
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!
Join us this week on BTL as we discuss where our medium tolerance of the idea of maybe voting for Hillary Clinton in the general met it's natural end. Misrepresenting corporate ties was one (bad) thing, but misrepresenting single-payer healthcare and Bernie Sander's (superior) health platform is where we draw the line. We're legit not having her in any way shape or form! Come for the rage, stay for our rundowns of the rest of this action-packed week: Tuesday's State of the Union, Thursday's GOP Debate, Sunday's Dem Debate, and the latest on Iran followed by our coverage of the infuriating/criminal Flint, MI water situation. The episode is long but worth it!
We talked about this on the podcast but decided to reiterate it because IT IS IMPORTANT. If you read last week’s news, you might be under the impression that liberal hero Sen. Sherrod Brown’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton is cause to panic, curl into a ball, throw away all your #feelthebern tee shirts, and stop going on with the business of living. STOP THAT. We'll tell you why.
