It’s A Sandwich

This week, The GLoP-extended universe tackles all the important issues of the day: First, Jonah responds to Stephen Colbert’s lame and inaccurate attempt at humor. Then, Sarah Jeong keeps her job at the New York Times, Alex Jones is banished from (most) social media, a deep dive into Paul Manafort’s eclectic wardrobe, and we wrap up with a special GLoP investigation: is a hot dog a sandwich? Jonah says yes, others say no. Also, the idea of a museum dedicated to pizza is, er, cheesy, but where should it be located? And is that gooey stuff they sell in Chicago really even pizza? Listen and leave us your thoughts in the comments (keep it Kosher, please).

    It is, in no sense whatsoever, a sandwich. John is so wrong it’s painful.

    Can’t believe Colbert went after Jonah Goldberg as a Trumpster. Jonah cares more about dogs than owning the libs! Owns two dogs but owns zero libs! That is an outrage!

    Colbert needs to call out the real Trump allies like MAXimum MAGA Boot and Jennifer “Right Turn Left” Rubin.

    Sorry John, but a hot dog is not a sandwich. I don’t even consider a burger a sandwich per se. And I kind of like deep dish pizza.

    Rob’s the only one who gets it: the Left is not being intellectually honest in discussions about Republicans in power. This was also the playbook with a Bush re: “where are the honest Republicans to stop this”

    JPod and Jonah being gobsmacked their fair mindedness isn’t rewarded by people who not only hate Trump but also will lump all of the right together continues to flummox me.

    Unless you full on turn on the GOP and want to destroy it you’re still anti-Left.

    Great podcast! I have to go with Jonah on this one, a hot dog is not a sandwich. By definition, a sandwich is stuff between two slices of bread, which is not what a hot dog is. However, when I was a kid and my brothers and I ran out of hot dog buns, we would slice two hot dogs in half and put those between two slices of bread and, then and only then, would we have a hot dog sandwich.

    A submarine sandwich is served on a roll, which is basically a large bun.

    I have made a sandwich with hot dogs, when I’ve run out of buns. You have to slice them lengthwise and in half to make them fit sandwich bread. But they don’t constitute a sandwich till they’re between two individual slices of bread. There, glad I could settle that for you.

    Meat surrounded by bread? So, corn dog = sandwich, I guess.

    Re Manafort: I don’;t recall exactly who the NBA player who said it was, but the quote seems appropriate: “Sure we make a lot of money. But we spend a lot too”.

    Be careful with jokes like that, assuming you like the income she brings in.

    If I heard Jonah correctly, concerning the Jeong incident, he said (paraphrasing from memory): “one of the worst outcomes for the county that could come out of this is if whites develop their own identity.”

    I apologize if I have misunderstood this or misquoted. A few questions come out of this:

    Jonah – what do you identify as? Is it dangerous for the country if any groups have an ethnicity or only whites? Is it bad for the county if Jews identify ethnically? If no one should have an ethnic identity do you push for Jews/Blacks/whites/Asians to stop recognizing their ethnicity. If its only whites, of course the question is why is only whites identifying as ethnicity bad for the nation?

    John is correct about twitter. The laws have allowed these media companies to occupy a space between common carrier or publisher that has created much of the trouble. They should be forced to pick one or the other.

    Rob wisely avoid the pointless question about a hotdog (not a sandwich) and pizza museum (wouldn’t Italy be the best choice).

    They took it off the selections menu at the KCRW site, where I used to access it. Guess I should look on i-tunes. Thanks.

    I should have been more specific: It didn’t just return after Rob got fired from CBS/Kevin Can Wait.

    I have them going back just about every week, with a few exceptions. I don’t know how far back iTunes or KCRW go, but if you find you can’t get any of them, let me know and I’ll see about getting them to you. They’re small enough I could email several at a time.

    “… all of us who are generally sort of repulsed by this administration …”

    –Rob Long, @8:47 – 8:53

    But none of you is repulsed by this administration! Each of you is obsessively fixated on, and repulsed by, some of the behavior of this President.

    Get over it!

    For the purposes of this podcast, I thought you were supposed to be insightful commentators on the popular culture. Instead, you come across like Mona Charen and Jay Nordlinger (whose podcast I can no longer stomach), sniffing and snorting disapprovingly at Donald Trump’s atrocious table manners at the dinner party held shortly after Mona’s latest lesson in cello playing, a hobby she took up after her kids got out of college.

    “Repulsed by this administration” my patootie. Bleah.

    Speaking of patootie, given that you properly discussed the cultural significance of Animal House on the 40th anniversary of its release, why not discuss the cultural significance of Rocky Horror Picture Show, which still generates a cult following among college students?

    You first.

    Seriously. Why, after eighteen months of this administration, is someone on the right saying that they don’t like the President so freaking triggering for you people?

    I’m pleasantly surprised that Colbert had the integrity to issue a correction – even if he did do his best to sweep it under the rug by surrounding it with jokes.
