Paul and Sean lament the failure of the Democratic Party to deal with its own sexual harassers both today and in the 1990s. Then, a quick preview of the first “Impolitic Goes to the Movies” and the sanitized world of circus founder PT Barnum. After a quick visit to the lamest hotel for limousine liberals, they consider the consequences of the Republican tax reform plan for graduate students.
Because we’re massive nerds, Sean’s visit to a community theater stage production of George Orwell’s 1984 sparked our discussion of the best literary metaphor for authoritarianism in the age of Trump, which is…the Real Housewives of Orange County. Also starring Vicki Gunvalson, the anti-John Galt.
