168. From Pokemon to Paying for the Convention
It’s the Ides of July. Trump has chosen Mike Pence and Jay and Mona have chosen to withhold laurels. They consider the state of the Republican Party – is there room for Reaganism anymore? – as well as who’s being asked to pay for the big show. (Hint: The guy who claims to be worth $10 billion ain’t the one.) The week saw another horrific terror attack, a discouraging Obama speech in Dallas just when the moment demanded largeness of spirit. Mona and Jay disagree about W’s performance at the memorial service for slain officers, wonder about who is the biggest liar this year, and note the Pokemon craze.
Music from this week’s episode: Berklee Percussion Ensemble, “Ogoun Badagris”
