  • Ep 652: Uvalde, My Heart

    Thu 8:00pm By Driftglass and Blue Gal
    The tragedy in Uvalde, Texas was the result of Republican political priorities and policies. That's what makes it political. That it was not shocking (not anymore) is what led to public rage rather than mere sadness. More at http://proleftpod.comMany thanks…

  • Ep 641: How Did We Get Here?

    Mar 10, 2022, 7:00 pm By Driftglass and Blue Gal
    How do we get to the point where Bill Barr says with a straight face that Trump is utterly unqualified to be president, but that he would never vote for a Democrat? And where does that leave the Democratic Party's need to compromise with wackjob Republicans?…
  • Ep 640: And Like That, Republicans Reset Their Software

    Mar 3, 2022, 8:00 pm By Driftglass and Blue Gal
    The great Republican software reset has begun, as Tucker Carlson claims he never supported Russia, and White-Wing Evangelicals set their brains to "Pelosi 9/11 Socialism" instead of "Trump 1/6 Big Lie." And Biden's State of the Union was great overall, yet…
  • Ep 639: Truth Social Will Be Fixed 'In Two Weeks,' But Not Ukraine

    Feb 24, 2022, 7:00 pm By Driftglass and Blue Gal
    Republicans can't help but politicize a Russian invasion of one of our allies. Trump won't shut up, but can't fix anything in less than his "two weeks" lie. The backfire for Putin and an even worse one for Fox. And we're giving up despair and cynicism…

  • Ep 635: Nothing Personal, Pal

    7:00pm By Driftglass and Blue Gal
    Joe Biden's "hot mic" not-an-accident moment was not for Peter Doocy, it was for Biden's base. A new SCOTUS justice freaks out the right even before they know who SHE will be. Sarah Palin tests positive and dines out anyway, and no, M&M shoes do not distract…
  • Ep 634: Maybe Joe Biden Is Simply A #@%^ing Democrat!

    Jan 20, 2022, 8:00 pm By Driftglass and Blue Gal
    People in the media insisting Biden move to the center - wherever that is, punch a hippie or do a "Sista Soldja" moment - are just in the habit of hating plain ordinary progressive Democrats. We think their advice is wrong. [NOTE:  F-words are used in this…
