12/11 The GOP Assault on Institutions & Norms

December 11, 2017

Good afternoon. On today’s show, Alabama voters explain why they’re sticking by Roy Moore, Republicans perpetrate voter suppression in AL, the GOP continues to attack institutions devoted to the public good, the right wing media is suddenly skeptical of the FBI, and Carl Bernstein thinks there was a cover-up in the Trump White House.

On the fun half: Roy Moore wants to get rid of all the amendments after #10 and implement Christian theocracy, “Sheriff” David Clarke throws shade at John Lewis, Laura Ingraham thinks the #metoo movement is ruining office holiday parties, Alex Jones details his plans to buy a sex robot, Sam gets a hideous gift in the mail, a caller in AL shares some thoughts on the election, Sam schools a caller on corporate profits, and Jamie calls out bad faith libs re: Al Franken and sexual harassment.

Cast: Sam Seder (@samseder), Michael Brooks (@_michaelbrooks) Matt Lech (@mattlech), Jamie Peck (@jamie_elizabeth), Brendan Finn (@BF1nn)
