    3. Donald Trump: Where white nationalism and Russian nationalism find their Grand Wizard

    4. Progressives can defeat mainline Democrats by thinking long-term

    BTL #354 - Kill The Compromise - 6/15/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Black lives still don’t seem to matter enough to police departments in California and Georgia

    5. Biden’s VP shortlist is shorter in number and short on excitement

    6. You can take Bernie Sanders out of the presidential race, but you can’t take his supporters out of the electorate

    BTL #349 - The Joe Biden Experience - 5/4/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. If 2019 was the year of believing women, then 2020 is the year we decided to stop.

    2. If we can read anything into the Biden VP selection committee, it’s that Biden likes to stick to a theme.

    3. If Kansas is lapping you in primary ideas, you might be New York State.

    4. States are re-opening, so looks like we may have to die to save capitalism.

    5. He may be the king of ratings, but his polling is the one stat Donald Trump can’t rescue through sheer force of personality.

    6. If Kim Jong-Un really is back, then he’s wasted an opportunity to peddle a brilliant rebirth story. Amateur.

    BTL #345 - Pearl Harbor Week - 4/6/20

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Get ready for a week in which everything will be constantly compared to Pearl Harbor

    2. We smashed the record for unemployment claims. Just slaughtered it.

    3. Turns out when 10M people are suddenly unemployed, medicare-for-all sounds like a great plan.

    4. The Democratic convention is being pushed, but no stupid deadly virus is going to stop the Wisconsin primary, whether or not they have polling place, poll workers, or voters.

    5. The Republican Governors are proving they’re actually as science-challenged as the character they play on TV.

    6. California is either doing a bang-up job, or it isn’t. The numbers tell many stories.
