Biden and Harris and Warren—oh my! We break it all down for you on this podcast, in which we wonder at Kristen Gillibrand’s strange insistence that fairness would demand privileged kids get shot by cops, Andrew Yang wanting to give you $1,000 a month, and Bill DeBlasio just being a jerk. Give a listen.

    They need to pod together in one location so Christine can demonstrate her Aikido the next time someone cuts her off or talks over her.

    And so someone can teach her to mute the mic when she types :)

    John’s comparison between the government shutdown and impeachment is incorrect. Impeachment requires active passing of a law; a government shutdown merely requires that you not successfully pass a law that, say, increases the debt ceiling.

     

    So when Boehner allowed the government shutdown despite his opposition to it, it was because he couldn’t pass a law to prvent it; if Pelosi is stubborn enough, nothing her caucus does can force her to allow a vote on an impeachment bill.
