100 Reasons to Impeach Donald Trump

I consider this Alabama Liberal’s 95 Thesis, and instead of nailed to The White House door, perhaps quietly slipped into The Oval Office–perhaps by Pence himself. This list is in no particular order and obviously some reasons will be stronger than others… 1. We didn’t elect him. There has never been a sitting President who lost… Read More »

Petty Issues: Trump’s Joint Disgrace–I Mean, Address Edition

That five minute standing ovation for the mother of a fallen soldier went from “compassionate” to “snake-handling church-tent revival.” And Trump’s praising of a military he largely has done nothing for most definitely tip-toes over the line from “patriotic” to “I’m using you to wrap a protective shield around my fascism.” [Sean Spicer’s new thing… Read More »

Episode 40–How Do Democrats Lose? The Southern And Northern Strategy

Can the Democrats take back the white working class? And how did they lose them in the first place? Tricky questions that we attempt to answer by looking deep into the history of the Democratic Party–which contained MLK and George Wallace at the same time–and how the Southern Strategy cost them the white working class decades… 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 29–Are the Outsiders Really Elites?

We break-down the strange myth that Donald Trump is an outsider or that 2016 is the Year of The Outsider with mega-wealthy candidates like Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Trump–who collects politicians Vito Corleone-style “like so many pennies in my pocket.” We recap the RNC, the running mate selections for both campaigns, wonder why the… Read More »

Mike Pence? Really?…Maybe Trump Should’ve Picked Ivanka

“Who’s Trump going to pick?” was the breathless speculation for months. “Will it be a former primary foe like Rubio or Kasich?” “No, no, it’ll be a woman like Joni Ernst, he’s gotta pick a woman.” “Nope, it’ll be someone currently in congress to help get bills passed like Bob Corker or even”–hilariously–“Jeff Sessions.” “Nah,… Read More »

Episode 28–Abortion….This Again?

Closing out our Guns, Immigration, and Abortion trilogy we talk about that most uncomfortable of hot buttons in a way that is at least unusual. We relate personal stories and sometimes strangely funny experiences with looking at exactly what it would look like to re-criminalize abortion, why no other industrialized country even talks about doing… Read More »

Bentley is Embarrassing but Not Nearly as Much as Other Republican Governors

What’s it like to be from a state where you might occasionally get mentioned in the national news for something positive? Other people probably see their home state trending on twitter and think “Cool, I can’t wait to see what it’s about!” But Alabamians know all too well it won’t be for something positive, and… Read More »
