    Hey guys…awesome show! New listener…only found your show about week ago and so glad I did. I love anything and everything you guys put out there about Dan Bidondi and the Infowars sect…just hilarious stuff. Only complaint I can’t correctly pronounce Netanyahu anymore.

  • McKinley

    Re word “crusade” – If I remember correctly, Bush originally was using the term “crusade” in his post-911 speeches and statements, then a group of Muslim-American leaders met with him and explained, “uh, please…ixnay on the ‘usadecray'”

    • muselet

      A quick Google search (keywords: George Bush crusade) indicates you’re right.

      I’d managed to forget GWB’s use of “crusade,” possibly because of his sudden pivot to saying it wasn’t a crusade. Funny how the memory works.

    Christians can certainly serve in public office and do, obviously. But they cannot use those governmental positions to establish their religion as the law. Otherwise, democracy means nothing. The Constitution means nothing. The First Amendment means nothing.

    You guys hit upon something that I think is so obviously true it shouldn’t have to be said. Trump’s loyalty is to Trump. One of the requirements of the job of president, as far as I am concerned, is that you want it for the right reasons. That you actually care about the country and its people. I’m pretty sure that Trump is all about making Trump ‘great’ any way he can and not much else. His non-gay lawyer, Roy Cohn of the House UnAmerican Activity Committee of the McCarthy era, who subsequently died of Aids, was his favorite lawyer.
    I believe he picked up a few tricks from watching him. But they are very cynical tricks. As Roy Cohn was a very cynical man.

    Great show guys, as always.

    In regards to the Left turning against Bernie…well, it’s happening already:

    Again, it just goes to show you–the far Left will never, ever be fucking satisfied by anyone. The keep searching for the pure as driven snow person to carry out their never-to-accomplished wishes. They have no damned clue about the nature of progressive politics. And when someone does come along and accomplishes at least 80% percent of what they want, it still isn’t enough.

    Even more infuriating, they run right into the camps of people who are against everything they stand for, but they are willing to hop into bed with them because there is agreement on a couple of issues–usually weed legalization, getting rid of the Fed and the NSA, and pulling troops from overseas. See the support for Daddy Paul and son, and yes, even Trump.

    In all honesty these people can go fuck themselves.

    • Badgerite

      I think the only candidate that certain elements on the left would be happy with would maybe be the Dali Lama. Even with all the human suffering and carnage now so obvious from the flood of refugees from Syria , from ISIS controlled regions, and the rest of the Middle East and Africa, Nom Chomsky is still on his “America is the big problem in the world” kick. America did not cause this.
      Forces and are endemic to the region and the culture are causing this flood of desperate people.
      And where are they fleeing to in search of humane conditions? The west, of course.

      • muselet

        I’m not sure the Dalai Lama would satisfy those particular—all meanings of the word—Lefties. Take a gander at his Wikipedia article. He’d only be a terrible disappointment to them.


  • Badgerite

    Truth is, this Kentucky woman and her supporters have defined religious freedom so broadly that it becomes governmental establishment of religion. Your religious freedom entails practicing your religion in your own life. If you work for the government in any capacity, you represent we the people. You do not get to impose your religious views in doing your job. If you do so, you are violating the religious freedom of everyone else and seeking to establish government based on your own religious practice. This is simply a constitutionally mandated bright line. There is no maybe here. I don’t know if the judge can remove her from office based on her refusal to do her job, ( maybe Beau would know), but I think that may have been a better option.
    But, either way. These people have a legal , and moral, right to get married and she, as a government official, does not get to impose her religious view on them. It is that simple a bright line rule of law.

      Spot on!

    Amanda Marcotte doesn’t think Kim Davis will become a big-time famous Martyr to The Glorious Cause of making gay people’s lives miserable. On the other hand, Charlie Pierce hears the unmistakable sound of cash registers. I hope Marcotte is right, but I fear Pierce is.

    The county clerk’s position, at least in Rowan County, is an elected one, and the only way to winkle Davis out of the office would be impeachment by the state lege, which is currently not in session. I believe she could resign, but I don’t know for sure and I’m too damn’ lazy to look it up.

    Bob, you’re making exactly the same argument everyone made when pharmacists started deciding they wouldn’t fill certain prescriptions because of their wounded religious fee-fees: do your job or find another line of work. Doesn’t mean you’re not right, mind.

    Erick Erickson is a boob, and either he or Mike Huckabee is plagiarizing the other. My guess is Erick ibn Erick is cribbing off Huckabee.

    Imagine Joe McCarthy selling used cars with sawdust in the transmissions and bodies that are 75% Bondo by weight. That’s Ted Cruz.

    Bob, it’s not only a US District Court judge, it’s a US District Court judge who was nominated by George W Bush.

    Rand Paul was a bit incoherent on the point—no surprise there—but he basically argued that people should just enter into contracts, and if you want to be married you go to a church. It’s Paul trying to suck up to the god-botherers.

    Guys, people were either worried that they’d lost two days (“Holy cow, did I really drink that much?”) or that you two had fallen through a temporal anomaly and were speaking to them from the future (“Holy cow, Star Trek got it right!”).

    Chez, it would be hard for Brian Kilmeade to choke on his brain. That would be like choking on a grape seed.

    Brian Kilmeade has apparently never heard of asking someone for a quick translation. Or of learning a handful of words of Spanish. Or not reporting on stories he’s not qualified to cover (basically, everything).

    Whenever I hear mention of the Fox Brain Room, I think of the attached.

    Bernie Sanders is right about drones. His position is perfectly reasonable. As you guys say, though, there’s a certain quarter of the Left which loves “Bernie Sanders”—a fictional character who looks an awful lot like, but holds almost no positions in common with, the real Bernie Sanders—and they’re terribly disappointed and will probably sit out the 2016 election to teach the Ds a lesson. There’s a word for people like that; several, in fact.

    I’m surprised the insufferable Hugh Hewitt didn’t throw Lindsey Graham off his show for that heresy. As much as it pains me to do so, I have to applaud Graham for not following the R herd.

    Nothing says “peaceful religion” like an AR-15 with Bible verses on it and called the Crusader. It’s not as stupid as the pork bullets some nitwits were selling a few years ago, but it’s close. No, I tell a lie, it’s actually stupider.

    Interestingly, Donald Trump announced the signing of the GOP loyalty pledge, but with a twist: he reserves the right to go third-party if he’s not satisfied with the way he’s treated by the party. And Republicans think they could have negotiated a better deal with Iran than the P5+1. Sheesh.

    I’ve long called Chris Christie a thin-skinned bully. It should be no surprise that he went after a kid. The worst part of that audio is the audience laughing along with Christie.

    Christie’s advisers should sit him down and make sure he understands that his political career has topped out.

    (Bob, you missed Chez’s f-bomb at 25:41.)

    The stupid keeps burning white hot. As Chez so eloquently puts it every week, “Dear God, we’re doomed”.
