Not on topic, but I saw this and thought of you: It's a time-lapse video of the construction of the MTP set. I can't watch video on this machine, so I don't know if it includes the assembly of the moderator out of Chuck-chunks or not.

Good morning, Mr. Glass.

You both mentioned Ms. Bachmann in the podcast, so I'm not sure if you read the following article...

...but I thought I'd direct your attention to the following, as it wasn't mentioned by either of you...

"Gingrich, who served as speaker of the House from 1995 to 1999, is an informal adviser to Bachmann, doling out advice on how to maximize her profile after leaving office."

Enjoy your day.

On the topic of "'Centrists' are the problem:
While most dismiss Sanders’ chances, even some supporting Hillary Clinton are concerned he could find unexpected success against the more establishment Democrat.

“I have nightmares that someone like a Bernie Saunders will catch fire and cause trouble for Hillary Clinton. People sometimes ignore who the most electable candidate is and which candidate is best prepared to lead the country in favor of the fun of being a contrarian in the moment,” said one pro-Clinton Democratic operative, who asked to remain anonymous to speak candidly.

In the alternate sane-and-rational universe, a campaign operative who was THAT obtuse would be ejected so fast that he's skip across the parking lot like a stone upon a lake, picking up road-rash with every bounce.

But that universe is not this one.
