Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 13, 2017, it’s the She’ll Do Anything for Moore edition of the show with your hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.

This week, as we broadcast in real time the results of an election whose results are already known to all, we talk about whether the left is going to succeed by sacrificing Franken and Conyers and any and all other signs of impurity to go after Trump. Will Conyers succeed in holding his seat through nepotism? Will the people of his district in Michigan give a damn about a few pats on the ass here and there? And what of Franken? Who read him the riot act?

Then we talk about more outrage over Trump from the guns of Kirsten Gillibrand. Just how calculating was K-illibrand when she denounced Bill Clinton (the very definition of throwing under the bus, no?)? Was she preparing her campaign against Trump’s supposedly egregious behavior already?

Shower thoughts? Of course. And I’m Henry the Eighth by the Hermits is our hidden gem!

    The rule of thumb used to be that urban area election returns were before the rural areas. From what I’ve seen, it’s now reversed.

    I think the reason is that the technology is now the same everywhere, and rural areas have many fewer precincts than urban areas. An area with 20 precincts will have x number of people in the board of elections office. An area with 200 precincts will not have 10x people in the board of elections office; so they will be slower in adding up the numbers.
