Trump blocks the Dem response to Nunes memo.. memo... because national security or some bullshit lol whatever nothing matters, meanwhile a budget passes despite Rand Paul's grandstanding and the DREAMers are left to twist in the wind but whatever cause lol nothing matters and as a result some progressives might just sit out 2018 and let the blood-sucking ghouls hold on to power for a while longer because that'll show 'em, cause.. you get it..

Is the Nunes memo the biggest case of conservative blue balls since they discovered Nailin' Palin was just a porn parody and not a leaked sex tape? We say yes. We also abandon all this mannered poli-speak and get crude about it.. so hide grandma and listen in.

We got a gross pervy rapist doctor being sentenced to life for molesting Olympic gymnasts, the RNC's finance chair is a gross pervy rapist, the gross pervy rapist President did in fact try to fire Mueller last year, and hell, even Hillary Clinton had a gross perv (although not allegedly a rapist) in her midst in 2008, which she handled questionably. I didn't think this week's episode necessarily had a theme, but there it is..

Shut it Down

The government shutdown with one party in control of everything and I got is this lousy both sides narrative. Also, this year's Women's March is just as big as the first one. So there's that. We'll likely be re-visiting the first topic in a few weeks.

Today we have on former University of Miami football player Austin Pfenninger to discuss life as an FBS fotball player, the lack of athlete compensation, the major gaps in healthcare, and the conflict of interest in treating player injuries and the push to get injured players back on the field. 

Later we touch on the fire and fury over Fire and Fury, the book Trump hates so much that he can't help but remind everyone every 5 minutes exists, and then embodies every trait clamied in the book he denies. So much 5-dimensional chess with this guy. Also, yea, Hawaii thought they were getting nuked while we were recording and we didn't know. Sorry.

Well, that sure sucked. We recap the year that was 2017 and rifle through some current-ish events. What more is there to say? 2017 made 2016 look like a party. Will 2018 be better? it almost can't help but be, but prepare for the worst with us.

Harmon Leon is back and he has a new book: Meet The Deplorables. We talk all about it and stuff and I grill him for personal anecotes and pick his brain like the drooling fanboy I am. Sorry.

Follow him on Twitter: https://twitter.com/harmonleon immediately now. 

On the second half, Rachel and I mourn for our terrifying reality and ponder how many shots of cheap vokka it would take to forget all about 2017, remembering we felt the exact way this time of year last year. Merry Christmas!

And attached, here's my amazing tree, just to show you we aren't participants in the War on Christmas. Maybe we'll get a Hannukah bush next year.

Sarah Burris joins us live and in the flesh along with our friend Lindsay to discuss the awful/no good/everyone hates it but we're gonna do it anway cause MAGA who cares whatever lol tax bill, along with the Flynn/Russiagate news, Roy Moore stuff, and all kinds of other tasty morsels of abject sadness and incredulity. Mimosas were consumed. There's more profanity and fuckallery in this one than in the new Frances McDormand Billboards movie. 

00:0000:00

Sarah and Molly join us to discuss the latest in the unearthing of the awful gross perv men and how it's bringing up a lot of memories and repressed feelings for women everywhere. In the 2d half Sarah helps us unpack the latest on Trump/Russia and the awful, no good, retch-inducing tax bill. 

00:0000:00

Now it's Al Franken. Who's next? He won't be the last. A silent epidemic is being revealed, and it knows no bounds of party or political persuasuion. This is going to be rough.. We try to unpack it for you.
