Okay, so I’m a teensy bit behind on my show posts, since I recorded Episode 156 on July 17. Again. This is why I need a Producer to help me wrangle the content and the marketing and the show posts and all the things that help a really good podcast get a bazillion downloads a […]

If you turn on the news today, you’ll probably hear some version of a story about Mitt Romney and whether he really did fire a bajillion people while he was at Bain Capital. See, the Obama campaign really wants you to believe that Romney is some horrible real-life hybrid of the Monopoly Man, and Snidely […]

This morning, the head of the Democratic National Committee and member of Congress Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tweeted this picture. I know what she’s trying to get across.
