Ace, Gabe, John & Andy ring in 2014 with a roundup of the slow news week (kudos to Gabe for the painstaking research) and offer some predictions for the coming year.
We discuss the media’s rush to blame the AR-15 for the Navy Yard shooting, Starbucks’ announcement on open carry, the Washington Redskins and the media’s selectivity with regard to calling things by their rightful names and, last but not least, the Doctors reluctantly wade into a discussion of the GOP’s internecine warfare over ObamaCare.
Pay close attention around the hour and ten minute mark to hear Dr. Tempest unveil his Barack Obama and Jay Carney impersonations.
Note: We are shamelessly employing the Free Beacon’s subliminal advertising strategy in the episode title.
On today’s episode, Andy, Drew M., John E. and Rick Tempest are joined by Noah Rothman, Editor at Mediaite. We discuss the latest on Syria, NBC’s Harlequin romance novel-worthy analysis of Obama’s body language, Crazy Uncle Ron Paul, the Democrats’ core philosophy of Don’t-you-dare-call-it-socialism! (but, yeah, it is) … and how people are becoming conditioned to it, the kickoff of the 2013 football season, and Noah’s piece on Maria Rodale’s ridiculous open letter to Obama comparing chemical weapons to pesticides, which prompted an hilarious dramatic reading of this Salon piece – No, thanks: Stop saying “support the troops”.
