Happy December! Between bites of pie and gravy, David Waldman helps us shake off the tryptophan.

Greg Dworkin does not promote, but helps recount how Iowa and New Hampshire got to be first in line to decide who will run for president. Greg and David also do not promote, but report on how the shooting at the Planned Parenthood facility could convince Democrats to risk a government shutdown over guns.

John McCain and Lindsey Graham want 20,000 troops in Syria and Iraq to turn things into something that they do not quite have a plan for. Ben Carson moves way past dog-whistles in his campaign as he battles Ted Cruz for the hearts and votes of people that think homosexuals should be killed.

David explores the magical thinking about Isis, as well as the murky history of how Saudi Arabia exports radical Islam.
