5 Reasons Elizabeth Warren Will NOT Be Hillary’s VP…

The shortlist is out. Apparently, Hillary has narrowed her search down to Julian Castro, Tim Kaine, and Elizabeth Warren. Although I’m little disappointed that Al Franken is out of the running, either Kaine or Castro would be a solid pick. [Though I wonder why she went with Virginia senator Tim Kaine over the other Virginia… Read More »

Episode 24–Do People Even Want Small Government?

In the conclusion to our trilogy, we ask “Do People Even Want Small Government?” and take aim at Libertarians. Do Libertarians care that a “fair tax” would destroy your economy? Is Trickle Down Economics really just Plantation Economics? Why cut government jobs when contractors usually cost more? Plus, making the Alabamian case for why state’s… Read More »

Episode 22–Are Social Conservatives Over?

In the first part of our “conservative trilogy” (looking at social, military, and fiscal), we wonder if social conservatives are over or merely in a lull? How does Trump—a twice-divorced “New York Values” foul mouth who can’t quote Bible passages—change social conservativism? Is it a good sign that in only 8 years the social battles… Read More »

Episode 21–Is Bernie the New Ron Paul, Perot, Nader, Buchanan, or a Political Poet?

It’s our first “Bernie only” episode and we wonder if he’ll be the next Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, Ross Perot, etc. (lots of R-named ego-independents) and if there’s a link between mortality-fears and running for president. [Original title of episode “Save Us From Old Men Promising Revolution.”] Also discussed is if Bernie is a “political… 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 »

Actually, Hillary Doesn’t Need Bernie’s Fans, but He Sure Needs Hers

We’ve heard the same tired lines about the Democratic primary for months: “Well, no matter who wins the primary” as if there’s any doubt Hillary will “they’ll need each other’s fans.” And now that we’ve seen Bernie’s chances of winning winnow down to zero, the more specific “Hillary will need to appeal to his fans… Read More »

Episode 15–What Would Each Candidate Do as President?

Welcome back friends! After a week hiatus, we’re ready to tackle the biggest questions: is Ben Carson the worst campaign surrogate you’ve ever seen? Is Alabama Governor Robert Bentley’s sex scandal even more surprising than Ted Cruz apparently finding five women willing to have sex with him? Is oil the common thread that unites America’s… Read More »

Clinton and Trump are the Nominees, Get Over It

In an article written a few days ago, I said March 15th would definitively tell us who would win the primaries. People scoffed, and I’m not one to say “I told you so” but Alabama Liberal’s election predictions are usually better than the ones people are paying big money to get on other media outlets,… Read More »

Jeb Bush Really Was Like His Dad: A Man Out of Sync with His Era

South Carolina brought another casualty in the 2016 Presidential race: Jeb Bush. It’s also possibly the last one we’ll see for a while, since Rubio and Kasich both believe they should be the anti-Trump nominee, Ted Cruz’s dirty tricks will grow worse, and Ben Carson is adamant that he’s staying in the race…for some reason.… Read More »

Is Thinking Black Leaders are Sell-Outs the Ultimate White Privilege?

In episode 9 of “A Year Long Conversation” we dissect the divisions in the progressive movement between age, gender, and particularly race. Because there’s a weird phenomenon out there: young, white progressives who have had relatively good lives seem to think that even black leaders are now part of “The Machine.” They seem to view themselves as more… Read More »
