#440 - From Nashua to Haaazzaaa

225

Oh dear. Watching the New Hampshire returns, the lads do a spot-on impression of the good old, liquor-soaked days of 2016 Fifth Column and get pretty deep in their cups…so yeah, sorry about this one.

  • Trump wins

  • Cutting from Trump’s dumb speech

  • 20 percent for Dean Phillips

  • This is, in fact, democracy

  • No one says anything on cable news

  • The speeches

  • The overstatement machine

  • Moralism doesn’t work

  • A brave defense of Iran-backed Islamism

  • A sort of drunken rant about hipster Houthis

  • The New York Times on haaaazaaaaaa

  • It all falls apart…something about Tipper Gore, Jello Biafra, and covering every election but the U.S. one

The Fifth Column
Your weekly rhetorical assault on the on the news cycle, the people who make it, and occasionally ourselves. Kmele Foster (Freethink), Michael Moynihan (Vice), and Matt Welch (Reason) talk and laugh and drink their way to at least quasi-sanity in a world gone mad, often with the aid of clean and articulate guests. Weekly Members Only subscription edition often comes with listener mail and professional-quality (if inappropriate) singing. Analysis. Commentary. Sedition.
