In addition to Donald's naked little Donnie, there were other ugly Americans to talk about -- Paul Manafort and Ryan Lochte. The man who could (and should) unseat Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Tim Canova, checks in during the final stretch toward election day on August 30. And in the second hour, [...]

Nicole Sandler calls out the media for its role in turning the 2016 election into a farce. GottaLaff tells how the LA Times showed its bias this week. Claire Conner returns to the show to help trace the GOP insanity back to her childhood with the John Birch Society.

It's a busy day on the show, as Nicole Sandler hosts The Clash over Campaign Cash, a debate between Move to Amend's David Cobb and Shaun McCutcheon, who won his suit claiming aggregate limits on the amount of money an individual can contribute to a political party or the number of Federal candidates is unconstitutional at the Supreme Court. In the first hour, Nicole welcomes Tim Canova, the law professor and political activist challenging Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the primary. And Deborah Newell joins in for our Wednesday morning dip into the Oy FloriDUH files too.
It's a busy Thursday on the show, as the race tightens. Nicole welcomes Howie Klein back to the show to talk about all of it! MoveOn's Ben Wikler tells us about their record-breaking endorsement of Bernie Sanders. And it's Driftglass Thursday too!
