Episode 80: “Johnson Goes Limp”
SHOW NOTES EPISODE 80: “JOHNSON GOES LIMP”
This week Host Dave Bledsoe goes for the cheap shots while ostensibly talking about the Libertarian Party and their candidate for President. If you think there are dick jokes, you would be correct. Along the way we examine the historical roots of political parties and what they stand for (Hint: Not you) and do a brief overview of Third Parties in America. It’s brief because there isn’t much to say.
We look at all the things Gary Johnson would do if he were to be elected and discover they would all seem really, really familiar to Republican Voters. We also discuss what would happen if by magic Libertarians got everything they desired and how to survive in the wreckage of society that ensues, (Hint: Think Zombie Apocalypse) We also deep dive on why children should go to bed a reasonable hour, but honestly this is more a rant on the noisy kid that lives above Dave’s apartment. We share an Aleppo Moment as we try to remember who the Grand Vizier was under Mehmed VI, but really we are only showing off because we know who Mehmed VI actually was. We also get kind of snooty talking about the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era, showing that when WE went to college we didn’t just smoke a lot of dope.
Promotional consideration for this week’s show is by Gary’s Weed Hut, offering new options in getting baked, try our new Weed Enema, that shit is amazing. We open the show with a very angry Libertarian and close with Shirley Bassey’s plain talk to the Johnson Campaign.
Citations Needed?: All of this has happened before, all of this will happen again, Hey, I just graduated and this crazy, I’m a Libertarian so vote me maybe?, No, seriously this is crazy. Et tu Bill Weld, et tu?
Hypnostate provides the music in our opening credits.
