Episode 6 – Beware The Ides Of March

If it’s Sunday, then it’s – wait, I think someone already uses that one. Anyway, this is Dirty Politics, and Ken and Mike talked about the Democratic and Republican races, including the Michigan results, and the upcoming contests in Florida and Ohio and others on March 15, which happens to be the Ides Of March.

illinois-nazisThe audio quality on this episode is a bit off, as we recorded it outside on the balcony of the Dirty Politics Studio.

The boat that Ken pointed out actually isn’t the former Presidential Yacht, but rather a different vintage “Trumpy” yacht, like this one.

The article Mike was referring to is here.

And for the second Dirty Politics Book Recommendation, Mike chose “One Day” by David Nichols. Pick it up at Amazon, your local bookseller, or the library.

The Vox article that Ken mentioned is here.

Episode 5: Super Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday!

Ken and Mike sat down to compare, uh, notes, following this week’s interesting Super Tuesday returns, Thursday’s cage match between the Republican candidates, and Saturday’s results.

Nancy Reagan, 94, passed away today. The former First Lady campaigned against drug use by kids and teens, resulting in “very special episodes” well remembered by anyone who grew up in the 80’s.

The scene from Nuremberg Orlando that Ken referenced can be seen here.

Head over to Amazon for “The Boys On The Bus“, or maybe “Fear And Loathing On The Campaign Trail ’72“, or jot down the titles for your next trip to the local library.


Episode 4: Super Tuesday Super Preview!

Ken and Mike sat down Sunday afternoon and talked about Thursday night’s insane display between the Republican candidates, wonder why Ben Carson and John Kasich are still in the race, discuss Chris Christie’s yuuuuuuugggggeeee endorsement, and talk about Fat Tony.

No, not this one.

The other one.

Here’s the 90 second clip on CNN’s YouTube account:

This was recorded before Senator Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., endorsed Donald Trump, so when the guys are talking about Trump’s endorsements, they didn’t talk about him.

The NBC poll Ken talked about is here. Here’s a clip of Chuck Todd and Ted Cruz:


And here’s a picture of Donald Trump eating a waffle in Brussels, just because.

Episode 3: South Carolina, Nevada PLUS Apples and Dino Smut!

Ken and Mike sat down Sunday morning and chatted about the South Carolina GOP results, the Nevada Democratic caucuses, exit polls, and Apple’s response to the FBI’s request for them to hamstring their iOS. 

Here’s the “Art of the Deal” that Ken was talking about, and here’s the Jimmy Kimmel clip Mike referenced.

And for those of you who don’t know what Ken was talking about when he said that Donald Trump brings his own mic, check out this. Oh, and apparently Mike’s joke about his reading material is actually a thing.

Episode 2

We take a look at the New Hampshire results, and predict what will happen in South Carolina and Nevada. Today’s show was recorded before both the CBS GOP debate and the sudden news of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death. We’ll try and get a short take episode on these events up this week.

We had a really interesting discussion about Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s exchange with CNN’s Jake Tapper, but for some reason the recorder kept cutting in and out. Here’s the clip Mike was talking about, even though it didn’t make the final edit.

The poll Ken was talking about that shows Clinton and Sanders tied in Nevada is here.
