How to Flip the South–State By State

Sure, I’ve posted videos today talking about how to win over Trump’s base and exploring why poor Southerners vote Republican, but how do we flip each state from red to blue? Here are at least some answers, ranking each state from “most flippable” to “hopeless.” Disqualified: Virginia and Oklahoma. Virginia is disqualified not because it isn’t part of the Southeast–it… Read More »

Episode 44–Why Are We Democrats?

In the last episode before we finally know who the 45th President will be (hint, starts with an H and ends with an illary Clinton), we rally the troops by talking about why we’re Democrats. Burning questions include: seriously, how did two guys from Alabama wind up as Democrats? How will each swing state vote… Read More »

Episode 43–The Gender Episode

We dive deep into all things men, women, and everyone in-between in a stand-out episode. Big questions are explored like: Are men and women really different in 2016? Is Trump the epitome of what women like Hillary have always had to fight against? Have women already surpassed men and how will that affect dating, marriage,… Read More »

Episode 42–Are Our Elections a Big Business?

Hot on the heels of the 3rd and (mercifully) final debate, we take you inside “the Election Industrial Complex.” We find that Trump is right about our elections being rigged, but—of course—not in the way he means. Why are incumbents more likely to die in office than be defeated? Why does the candidate who spends… Read More »

Episode 41–What is Corruption? And Free Don Siegelman

We spend the first half of the episode making sense of Big Don’s implosion, tallying the numerous scandals and recapping his second debate performance. Then we ask “What is Corruption?” in 2016, and notice that a lot of American corruption seems to be how corruption is prosecuted and investigated in the first place–i.e. along party… Read More »

Live-Blogging the VP Debate

This should be a real event. A boring guy with white-ish hair vs. a boring guy with very white hair… 6:00 p.m…even the pre-debate montage of these guys makes them look boring. I can almost hear the editor of this clip package “Hey guys, you can’t make a turnip sexy.” 6:05…A debate moderator I’ve never… Read More »

Episode 35–What Will Obama Do Post-POTUS? And Predicting His Legacy

In our first truly “Obama Episode” we pull out our crystal ball to wonder what Obama will do after his presidency, and trying to predict how he’ll be remembered as President. Such burning questions include: Will Republicans miss torturing him? Exactly what bugs Republicans about Obamacare (their own plan)? Do Americans know we have the… Read More »

Episode 31–Do Hillary’s Scandals Matter? “The Passion of Hillary”

In this episode, we put Hillary on trial for her various “crimes” and see just how much people really care about Benghazi, “emailgate,” and Hillary’s failure to tip a waitress at brunch. We ponder just what exactly Republicans are hoping to find in Hillary’s emails—like a torrid affair with Joe Biden—and if people really care… Read More »

Episode 30–But Seriously, Can Trump Win?

Trying to cut through all the noise we look at the biggest question in the three months between now and election day: “but seriously, does Donald Trump have a shot in hell at becoming President?” We break down where Trump’s support (or lack of) is coming from, why some people associate his name with success,… Read More »
