    BTL #307 - ABOLISH THE STATE OF THE UNION - 2/11/19

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Breaking the shutdown record was just too fun not to try it again.

    2. The Green New Deal is fun and exciting, and if you don’t think so...well...you’re probably not running for president

    3. We’ll tell you all the detail of the Virginia abortion mess.  Oh, wait, did you think it was only about racism?

    4. Let’s abolish the State Of The Union

    5. What if we all just announced we’re running for president only once?

    6. Trump doesn’t do work. Now we’ve got the numbers.

    BTL #281 - GOT A TWEET - 3/14/18

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Today in weird Trumpisms, Rex Tillerson “got a Tweet” and now the Kochs control the entire world

    2. It’s better to just go ahead and double down on your random non-sequitur rant, right?

    3. After a brutal two week stretch, nobody is left in the White House except the second tier idiots

    4. The GOP has solved the Russia crisis by denying its existence so...more exciting elections to come?

    5. Betsy Devos cannot remember if she knows what a school is, but she has heard of choice and she’s for it

    6. Is Jeff Flake going to be our next president?

    BTL #280 - JUNGLE PREDATORS - 2/26/18

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Random hip hop singers claim they too could have turned the lights on in Puerto Rico faster than the US government (we believe them)

    2. If there’s one thing we’ve ever agreed with Trump on, it’s that the Dem memo is, in fact, too long.

    3. Can we hand Donald Trump a cheat sheet for other natural human responses to events and things

    4. Democrats become their own predators in the California jungle primaries

    5. CPAC just out CPACed itself and is now an existential joke about nothing

    6. Our final week of painstaking sports coverage. We’re so relieved (and also devastated)!

    BTL #257 - IN ID WE TRUST - 8/28/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Trump plan on Monday: pilfer Obama’s Afghanistan speech, remove all the details

    2. Trump plan on Tuesday: pilfer Trump’s id, remove all coherence

    3. On Friday, Hurricane Trump hit America with plans to make people suffer before Hurricane Harvey had a chance to

    4. Latest White House exit leads to adorable Nazi reunion at Breitbart. We hope there was angel food cake.

    5. Mnuchin’s wife learns the hard way that poor people can find a Valentino hashtag too

    6. Slow your roll, media. The Kasich/Hickenlooper thing is just a friendship right now. They aren’t dating yet.

    BTL #256 - WHEN EVEN THE “BEST WORDS” FAIL - 8/21/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Hapless White Nationalists fail to grasp the irony of carrying tiki torches while marching against people of color. The Tiki torch industry responded with fire. The police did not.

    2. Trump does not have the “best words” when it comes to racism, and that may be his biggest problem

    3. Trump tries to break up with his CEO exes, but they did it first! What a loser!

    4. Beelzebub Bannon is gone, just in time for us to discover that Trump has always been the White House’s leading white supremacist

    5. Catalonia is the latest victim of what Trump might call “real terrorism,” meaning it wasn’t committed by white guys with torches

    6. Americans grasp onto the once-in-a-lifetime eclipse as sign Trump’s days are numbered. (We are desperate out here.)
