10/18 Fetterman and Ryan’s Lessons On Defining Republicans

October 18, 2022

Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day as we get into the final weeks before the 2022 Midterm elections. They begin by running through updates on the Oklahoma City governor’s race, the Fed’s labor crunch and subsequent recession, and student loan relief, before talking protest, discourse, and soup in relation to great art. Emma and Sam briefly dive into updates on early voting polling (and how the Right is already cultivating doubt behind it), then watch a Swing Voters Project video that perfectly illustrates the success of John Fetterman’s campaign, seeing the bipartisan view of Dr. Oz as an out-of-touch elite, and a lack of issue with Fetterman’s health issues and approach to criminal justice, before jumping to the Ohio Senate race as Tim Ryan takes a page out of the Fetterman book, targeting JD Vance’s complete lack of beliefs outside of subservience to Donald Trump. Wrapping up the midterm review, Sam and Emma watch the recent Senate debate as pro-lifer Evan McMullin calls out Senator Mike Lee’s role in the special electors’ scheme.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma cover the censorship of Katie Halper’s coverage of Israeli apartheid by the Hill (and the minimal response in support of her), David from North Carolina discusses his state’s senate race, and the crew discusses the role of “threat to democracy” actually will play in this election. Mark Finchem, notorious actual Secretary of State candidate calls out Hugo Chavez and AntiFa, Jordan Peterson displays wonderfully the shortcomings of his weird post-modern fundamentalist ideology, and Jordan (caller) discusses the backlash faced by women who question Jimmy Dore and other Intellectual Dark Webbers, and Mitch in Dallas gives a very important update on the politics being played with semiconductors, plus, your calls and IMs!
