Alabama Liberal’s 6th Anniversary and Upcoming Features

February 7th 2011, a date that will live in infamy…just kidding, it was the official launch date of Alabama Liberal and I can honestly say it’s been a great six years. Sure, I’ve been slacking on some features—people most often ask for more Bubba’s Sex Tips, Sunday’s Sermons, Red State Vs. Blue State, and Mom… Read More »

Episode 16–Why Do People Hate Hillary?

It’s our shortest podcast in weeks, yet the theme is something that could be a ten-part miniseries: Why do people hate Hillary Clinton? We try to get to the bottom of it and also take time out to “investigate” non-scandals like Benghazi, White Water, and the obvious set-up of Monica keeping that stained-dress. Then we finish… Read More »

Episode 14–Are Doomed Campaigns Ponzi Schemes? Plus, “Election Industrial Complex”

We explore the growing “Election Industrial Complex” and how our elections have become a big business. And discuss some big questions like: are doomed political campaigns the new ponzi schemes?

A very special tenth episode of “A Year Long Conversation” that is a little longer than usual but moves like a bullet-train. We dive deep into: How each candidate’s strategy is shaped by who they are (Ted Cruz’s shady minions, Rubio’s half-hearted endorsements, Trump’s unimaginative strategy of actually winning states). We explore the media’s dead-wrong assertion that… Read More »

Episode 9–Is There a Racial and Gender Divide Among Progressives?

In one of our best episodes so far we get to the big questions: If Cruz and Rubio speak any more Spanish at the debates, will Trump build a wall around the stage? Will the mutual hatred between he and Jeb lead Trump to threaten to deport Columba Bush? And then our main topic: Is… Read More »

Episode 8–How Will Scalia’s Death Affect 2016? Should Liberals Celebrate?

Episode 6 – But Seriously, is Ted Cruz Eligible to Be President?

Alabama Liberal’s Brody and Blue in Alabama’s Michael face facts after Iowa by wondering “Where Will They Be” with the losers: Will Santorum and Huckabee run away together? Did Martin O’Malley changing his campaign song to “The Sound of Silence” foretell his fate? Why do we keep forgetting Rand Paul is alive? Then we move… Read More »

Episode 5 -Is the Winner of Iowa Really a Loser?

Along the way we answer such burning questions as are Latinos… Read More »
