It’s Friday at last! Although I feel like I keep saying this, and it never makes any difference.
Still, it’s a nice tradition, don’t you think? It’s often a chance for us to veer off the news-of-the-moment path and add a little something extra to the show, though we’re well past the sort of stability that would allow me to promise that to you.
I mean, who knows? Trump could invade Florida to stop the vote counting, or make Ivanka Attorney General or something, and then we’d be stuck talking about that.
I mean, I’m at least as prepared to talk about it as Trump is to do it. So, both sides, really.

PODCAST LISTENERS: There’s a new podcast platform in town, and the big news is: this one pays! RadioPublic pays podcast producers on a CPM basis, for listens on their native app (available for iPhones & Androids), financed by pre- and post-roll ads they insert. Not a bad way to support the show, with somebody else’s money!
So if you’re a podcast listener, please consider downloading the RadioPublic app on your Android or iOS phone. Yes, you can still download directly from their site, or listen to the player embedded here at Daily Kos. But it’s listens in their app that count toward payment.
Nothing changes on our end. It’s still Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter, and even Armando. Plus also, me. And you! As always, we still want your voice on the air with us. Sit down with your smart phone or other electronic recording device and send us your stories and commentary to share with the audience. There’s no easier way to try your hand at podcasting, without all the hassle!
Of course there’s no substitute for having your support via Patreon, or one-time contributions via Square Cash. (And hey, if you want a cool trick for donating sorta-kinda cost free, get their cash.me app and use this share code to get $5 in your account (plus $5 in mine) when you send your first $5 (to anyone)!
For now, how about one on the house? Here’s what we did last time out, on our LIVE show:
A little midterm election can sure change things quickly! We had a Blue Wave on Tuesday, but by Thursday the mainstream narrative writers were just too busy to back up. First, they have to strongly object with incredible concern over the slippery slope that, oh well… back to work. Then, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and broke three ribs. (Donald Trump is still workshopping out his funny tweet.) Oh, and another terrorist attack with another dozen or so dead. Not many people get shot in Thousand Oaks, but bullets changed that quickly. At least now reporters can be freed up from their Caravan gigs. David Waldman, with guest Greg Dworkin, use today’s KITM to build a new narrative, one nuanced fact at a time: Trump has a lot to be grumpy about. Democrats gain hundreds of legislative seats and a secure majority of state attorneys general. Dems did best in Donald’s 2016 states, picking up 28 seats. The youths are becoming civic. New Mexico picked up a Democratic trifecta. Plenty of poetic wins, including a gay Governor for intolerant bakers, a two mom Eagle Scout Henry Cavill-looking Senator, Scott Walker blocking himself from a recount… and, Colorado abolished slavery. Scuttlebutt also has it that Donald might get even grumpier, especially if he isn’t invited to the State of the Union. Meanwhile the Blue Wave still is rolling in. The race is not over in Georgia. Brian Kemp is quitting his old job, which he might miss soon. Florida is not over. Andrew Gilliam’s not over, which surprises Andrew Gilliam. Nate Silver is still figuring things out, and the AP has yet to call 23 races! Trump cheered himself up by firing his arch-enemy and ours, Jeff Sessions, hiring great guy and future coffee boy Matthew Whitaker. Whitaker is well positioned for the job, arriving with nose pre-browned, experience operating scams from Miami to Iowa to Israel, and a hankering for New Testament justice.
