Daily Kos presents Daily Kos Radio. Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by Contributing Editor David Waldman

Happy Halloween! David “Woooo” Waldman rises up from the fog dressed as a very scary “Hipster Coffeehouse” to present a star-studded KITM Holiday special:

Yech! That guy Mike Pence brought was just a dude in a Rabbi costume.

Boo! Donald Trump emerges from Hell to torture Pittsburgh, for no one’s benefit but his own. Threatening birthright citizenship is designed to terrify and distract. The whole idea is absurdimprobable and unnecessary, but look, we’re talking about it. It’s scary enough to drag intelligent people into the debate, including “Ominous” Armando. There’s no logical reason this could happen, but we are in the middle of a Jason Voorhees presidency.

EeK! Democrats have found their expectations edging up, usually a very frightening state for them. Greg “Dire & Doom” Dworkin is here to help tamp those down for you. Pssst: We are kind of looking pretty good… But, they are working pretty hard, so… We need to work harder. Expectations of us keep going up.

Shriek! Joan “Macabre” McCarter reminds us that Republicans have been lying about protecting your health for years. Medicaid expansion is life and death for 14,000 people, it’s on the line, and on the ballot for at least 400,000 uninsured Americans.
