America: where the 'swear jar' counts as a viable retirement plan.

Good afternoon, Mr. Glass.

Well, in Mr. Olbermann's defense, Ms. Gal might be too short for him to notice, while you might be too tall.

Best to you and your loved ones.

Thanks for all you both do, BG and DG.

Tuxedo cats are particularly close to my heart. Seeing Luna made me smile.

Stay safe and have a good weekend.

I think one of the major obstacles in getting a liberal media outlet in this profit driven ecosystem is the fact that we don't buy the snake oil that they sell. Audience numbers are one thing, but ROI on advertising is another.
That's an empirical measure of the very reprogrammability you talk about.
Cubic dollars spent purchasing right wing branded utter bullshit, and that number is huge. And all of them are on the take, from Newt Gingrich to Alex the fuck Jones.
Krugman once wondered whether selling snake oil supported Republican politics, or Republican politics built markets for snake oil.
Now Marge Three Toes is complaining that her $174,000 salary isn't enough and being in congress is making her miserable. That's nice.
Thank you again for the podcast. It's gonna snow again tonight, but we made it to the grocery store yesterday and seem to have what we need to live through it.
