David Waldman gives us an inside look at the national news and the local sales:
Virginia ad writers shy about misspelling penny, Penney.
Greg Dworkin calls in ready to rumble: Last night was the Brawl in Brooklyn featuring the Preacher vs. the Teacher, the Showhorse vs. the Workhorse, the Snarky vs. the Snide-y, at yet another giant title bout, and for once not Washerman-Schultzed off a prime time week night. Whether the candidates wanted to fight or were goaded, many worthwhile topics were explored, including a surprising exchange on Israel. Will this daring move help or hurt Sanders in New York? Bernie Sanders’ Jewish coordinator becomes so overladen with profanity she can’t hold her job. Bernie Sanders leaves NYC for Vatican City.
Armando calls in to discuss a judge’s ruling that victims’ families can sue the manufacturer of the military-style rifle used in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act has been a big issue in the debates, at least the Democratic ones.
Armando and David also discuss why candidates need to support the people that agree with them, why to look down ballot if you want to change things, and how candidate lists may not work for fundraising.
You house is filling up with eyes, ears, and empty pockets.
