After Paris..

Our first episode after the Paris attacks. Sorry it's been a while, but we make up for it with some important facts and, as usual, cunning insights. In the days...well, now weeks since the attacks in Paris, we've seen knee-jerk overreactions, anti-immigrant votes based on speculation and fear, and pandering to racists. And that's just certain Democratic members of Congress. The reaction from GOP presidential hopefuls is.. well, what you'd expect Basically, nauseating and as neo-Fascist as you can get without calling it that.

This time travel paradox plot brought to you by Carly Fiorina, with accompanying propaganda commercial included. 

Seriously, we deserve a god damn fruit basket for enduring this for you guys.

So, tonight was the Democratic Presidential Forum First to South Carolina something debate-ish (but not really a debate thingy) hosted by Rachel Maddow. And it was basically a glorified Maddow interview of all 3 remaining Democratic candidates. And my god, what a relief it was as compared to every other debate thus far. And, since everyone else is out of town, I (Trav) decided to talk to myself for an hour about it, as well as Ben Carson's very bad, horrible, no-good day; Wherein he declared himself King of Sweden and undisputed ruler of the Crab People, while claiming he once ate an entire leather sofa and ottoman on a dare.... angrily disputing any who doubted such claims.

Election Night Round-up

It's Election Night! Oh wait.. you didn't even know, did you? Ok, it's an off-year, but there was some important stuff on the ballot, and some good news here in Denver, which we'll tell you all about. As for the rest of the country.. some good, some bad, but a big improvement over this time in 2014. We also catch up on the GOP House mess and the ongoing post CNBC GOP debate temper tantrum, which has now led to... something?
