Began the show with the Friday news dump from the Wisconsin Supreme Court, allowing Minnesota state Rep. Phillips on the presidential ballot, after the state Democratic Party tried to exclude him, unless he got the signatures. There was a very funny conversation on how strange Phillip’s argument was about the cost of getting signatures.
After that (5:40), the fascination of Taylor Swift in politics — though she has not really inserted herself, yet. But, we mention how Donald Trump just got into the Swifty conversation, and the conspiracy that Joe Biden rigged the entire NFL playoffs to assert the Swift Army.
After that (25:10), we discussed the consultants hired by the liberal-controlled Wisconsin Supreme Court throwing out the two GOP submissions for new voting maps and taking all the other submissions — and how Democrats should have had one group submit a ridiculously leftist map.
Lastly (34:00), back more funny Taylor Swift ridiculousness, including how she’s gotten the GOP to admit to climate change.
