David Waldman was set to do his opening monologue while reenacting the old “Coppertone Kid” billboard with Abby, but it turns out we don’t have a video component to KITM. (He still did it.) Greg Dworkin tells us that the introduction of a federal Juneteenth holiday at least got people to thinking, which is quite a lot to ask from some people....

It’s the “Silver”, so David Waldman ponied up for the traditional 24 pack of diet cola, which if you listen closely is already being enjoyed! Critical Race Theory!

Listen to our archived episodes: RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube Support the show: Patreon|PayPal: 1x or monthly|Square Cash That was David Waldman, probably, under that writhing mass of cicadas behind the KITM microphone this morning... It sure sounded like him. Anyhow, all he needed to do today was introduce Greg Dworkin and Armando, and you know we’d have nothing to worry about. Terry McAuliffe made a big decisive comeback in Virginia with enthusiastic voters. The former guy...

But others were focused on the new Senate Rules committee report on the various security failures of January 6th.

Mo Brooks has finally been served with a lawsuit filed by Eric Swalwell. Well, Mo was still hiding, but his wife, who happens to be of suitable age and discretion, took it for him.

Oh, I mean… Very Somber and Reflective National Donut Memorial Day. Sorry. Gee whiz, why aren’t people rushing back to work at low-paying jobs?

Listen to our archived episodes: RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube Support the show: Patreon|PayPal: 1x or monthly|Square Cash Due to a technical mishap, today’s KITM when ran backward does not reveal any QAnon directives, but instead plays a Carrot Top standup routine from 2005. We regret the error. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin are here to put our outrages in context: QAnon turns out to be a big old can of mixed nuts. Not by coincidence, so are Trump followers and Republicans....

First, a new attempt at a GQP freak-out, thanks to Marjorie Traitor Greene. Then, a reminder that these outrages aren’t real. They’re just like GQP Facebook targeted ad messaging tests. Spit them out as fast as you can make them up, then see what sticks. And about that Ryan Air flight...

Maybe. But they are definitely here today! We are under a cloud of another mass shooting, or is it “beneath the shadow”? You’d think I’d have the idiom down, for how often it happens. By the way, it was the 18th mass shooting in California this year. It’s the 12th mass shooting in the...
