This week on BTL, we do our best to make up for our one-week absence! We try our hand at reporting breaking news, plus we've got a look ahead at the DNC and a look behind at the (terrifying, disorganized, slapstick-ridden) RNC. All that plus a discussion on the meaning of your vote and when voter outreach works and doesn't, plus an exciting (read: horrible) update on the week in racism. And jokes. We've got jokes too!
