  • UFUF 96: A giant In-n-Out Burger
    One man in and one man out. As hard as it is to believe the Republican field has another contestant. Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana declared his candidacy for the Republican Primary. Just when you think there is no one left to run on the right, another name pops up. On the left former Virginia Senator James Webb has decided to sit this one out. He, like Jindal, would immediately become a serious candidate. I can't be sure but I'm feeling like Hill-dogg may be happy Webb decided to pass.
    Listen to the podcast. Quickly before someone else joins the race. Oh and The Donald is running 2nd in the polls. God bless 'Murica!
    I'm in!
    Bobby Jindal enters the race. He may be too late to poll enough to make the 1st scheduled debate. That's a plus for the other candidates. He's smarter than most of them put together.
    I'm out!
    The republican's gain is the democrat's loss. Senator Jim Webb of Virginia passes on a 2016 run. That loud sigh of relief you hear is from deep in the heart of Camp Hill-dogg. Bernie, Lincoln Chaffe, and Martin O'Malley would be instant footnotes if Webb changes his mind.
    Uh, I'll have the burger.
    Two mugs in Jersey catch a fish in a lake. So freaking what, right. Yeah well it had human teeth. Not as in it had swallowed some dead persons dentures, as in it's own teeth were of human type. The end is nigh people!
    All that and so much more. We talk flags and Obama's potty mouth. You surely don't want to miss it.

  • UFUF 95: Donald 2016!

    It's a rare day in politics when your dreams come true. Well today is that day. The Donald has come through for us, for all of us. The hairpiece is in. Trump 2016 got underway Monday with as much crazy as you might imagine. Will he be the ring master or will he be a pivotal player as we close in on the first debate? You know the drill.
    All Trump, all the time!
    Do we need to say any more?

  • UFUF 94: No room at the inn.

    Just when you think there can't possibly be anymore prominent republicans declaring their desire to be President, along comes Lindsey. Graham that is, Senator of South Carolina. Not to be outdone even thought they were, the Democrats added a candidate to the three already running.
    Just in case you're not sure who is running on the Dem side: Hill-Dogg, Bernie Sanders, Martin O'Malley, and now in steps former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chaffe. Hope y'all like close quarters, cause it's getting crowded up in here.
    Tony and I untangle all that for you at no extra charge. But you gotta listen.

    This will be abbreviated post tonight and we will not be pod-casting next week.
    On a very sad and serious note, my friend, my comrade in arms, my podcast partner Tony, lost his mother shortly after we recorded this episode.
    There will be a longer post on the blog in a day or two, but for now we just keep Tony and his family in our thoughts as he says good bye to his loving mother.

  • UF/UF 93: Skimming the shallow end of the gene pool.
    It's been a week that has tested humanity. The entire ruling body of international football gets indicted, former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is indicted on possible payments to cover up molestation charges, and Rick Santorum says he's dropping the sweater vest! Oh the f*&%#ng humanity!
    For F**k Sakes FIFA!
    The ruling body of international football (soccer) has been indicted by the Swiss and will be extradited to the US for prosecution by the FBI. Charges include actual slave labor, bribes of foreign governments, and general asshattery.
    For f**ck sakes Hastert!
    Former Speaker Dennis Hastert was indicted the same day. His crime? Covering up a 3.5 million dollar payment to an individual to keep some misconduct quiet. The conduct? We found out today ole Dennis molested a man when he was a wrasslin coach and teacher. Wow.
    For f**k sakes Santorum!
    Not only is ole Rick 'jail time for prompter use' Santorum running for President again, making that 19 nationally known Rs to do so, but he's dropping the sweater vest. WTF Santorum?! How can you get rid of the one thing that makes you recognizable outside of Pennsylvania? How Rick, how?!?
    So that's the week that was. Let's hope for a better tomorrow. In the mean time... Click the link.

  • Listen:
  • UFUF 92 – 270 for the WIN!

    In 2012, Obama won the election 303 to 235. That’s electoral college votes, by the way. It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidential election. It takes five things to win the presidency. Money, Momentum, Message, more Money, and 270 electoral college votes.
    Meanwhile, Texas has multiple problems. Last week was an ISIS attack and a conspiracy takeover. This week, bikers shoot it out at “Twin Peaks.”

    I got little Nukes
    Everybody’s favorite psychotic mad man, Kim Jong Un, says he’s got miniaturized nukes and a sub that can shoot them. He’s got pictures. What experts thinks is he’s got a high-school student with a bootleg copy of Photoshop.

    George, your slip is showing
    George Robert Stephanopoulos wrote “All Too Human” documenting his time as Bill Clinton’s right-hand man. Which consists of handling a lot of disgruntled women. Apparently he’s now a journalist, and as a journalist, you can’t give money to political candidates, then attack others in defense of the Clintons. Oh, wait, that’s just the mainstream media, yea? To quote one of my college professors, the only qualification for a journalist is “to have a job as a journalist.”

    The Electoral College
    It takes 270 to win and the Republicans need to flip a few states to win. We discuss the electoral map and how it could happen.

    Biker shootout at Twin Peaks
    That is not the title of a seventies movie. Bikers shoot it out over turf wars in Texas. Tony says “I’m no Stephanopoulos” and reveals his membership in a biker club, the “H.O.G” (Harley Owners Group). They drive to the Dairy Queen on Tuesday’s for parfaits. Their wives defend the turf if need be. #bikerlivesmatter

    All that, plus Google cars that wreck and if you’re a Boy Scout, you can’t get that “squirt gun badge” anymore.

  • UFUF 91: Don't mess with Texas!
  • Listen:

  • Yeah, Texas. It's big. It's bad. It's prepared for invasion? The Governor of Texas is here to say if you want some of the Lone Star State you had better come correct. The Texas Guard (not to be confused with the National Guard of Texas) is prepared to repel all invaders domestic or ya know, domestic.
    Meanwhile two ISIS terrorists open fire on artists in Austin Texas. In other news, two ISIS terrorists died when the were shot to death after opening fire on artists in Austin Texas. It shouldn't be funny but it just is. Oh, and Chuck Norris!
    Tease me Johnny.
    Come at me bro!
    Governor Abbot of Texas has ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor the joint special forces exercise known as Jade Helm 15. After Army Lieutenant Colonel Mark Lastoria went to Bastrop Texas to assure the folk they were not being invaded Governor Abbott called out the Texas Guard, at considerable tax payer expense, in case the Colonel Lastoria is a liar.
    Come at me Bro, part II
    Pam Geller hosts a Draw Mohammed contest with $10,000 American to the best cartoon of the prophet of islam. When Islamic terrorists open fire on the art contest a security team shot them dead. No other injuries reported. Not sure why that's funny to me, but the image of these scary terrorists being shot seconds after they attacked just makes me laugh.
    Chuck freaking Norris
    Texas Ranger Chuck Norris (not really, he's from Oklahoma), is ready to throw down with the nation's top special forces units if they try anything hinky in Texas. Can Chuck take down the Navy Seals, Army Green Berets, and Air Force Combat Controllers? We report, you decide! (But yeah, we think he probably could, it's Chuck freaking Norris!)
    All this plus Nevada unveils the first autonomous trucks. They're on the road, and they are un-manned. Sign of the Apocalypse? Yes, yes it is.

  • UFUF 90: We didn't start the fire.

    We didn't start the fire, but we're sure as hell gonna talk about it, mock it, and be irreverent towards it. Episode 90 ain't for the faint of heart. If you're the easily offended type, maybe skip this one.

    All others, well you know what to do.

    He's not a she, but she's not a he...

    Or something like that. We're really not sure what's happening with Bruce Jenner. In fact the only thing he made perfectly clear the other night is he's a republican and not a big fan of Obama. The twitter tizzy was epic as you might imagine.

    Kill it with fire!

    A man dies while in police custody. The death is shady to say the least. The community wants change. I know, lets torch the CVS, that'll fix everything.

    Send in the clowns!

    I'm not sure what the saturation point is but I feel like we may be getting close. Jon Bolton is joining the party. Yes, the former US Ambassador to the UN thinks he can be that change we'll believe in. Not much to say now except, All Aboard!

    All this plus signs of the apocalypse?!?

  • UF/UF 88: The Tax Man Cometh
    It’s tax day my friends! Well it was when we recorded this last night. For your sake I hope you are square with The Man. We all know what the IRS can do when motivated by a certain Administration, if you know what I’m saying. Anyway, pay your taxes you deadbeats, but first click the link.
    UF/UF 88: The Tax Man Cometh
    Well this is just tired, polarizing, & out of touch!
    Never go super stupid!
    Hill-dogg’s “Super Volunteers” have published a manifesto of sorts for journalists on what words can and can not be said when referencing Hillary as she runs for Pres. In a galactically super stupid move Hill-dogg’s team has put her behind the 8-Ball on day one. And she’s not running against anyone!
    At least Gary has better taste in mistresses than Bill.
    Be afraid, be very very afraid.
    Prominent Democrat and former Colorado Senator Gary Hart, yes that Gary Hart, says Americans should be super frightened about the money being raised and subsequently spent by Hillary Clinton on her run for the White House. With some estimates in the billion dollar range, how much is too much when running for such a high office? We report you decide!
    I vote for To Kill a Mockingbird.
    The End of Days in Tennessee?
    Taping the show last night a TN State House bill that would make the Christian bible the state book of TN passed 55-38. Since that time the TN Senate has overturned said bill, thus averting Armageddon or the Apocalypse, depending on which of the 583 different versions of the Christian bible you may or may not adhere to. Who the hell thought this was a good idea to start with anyway?

    All this plus a pharmacist decides the only drug people need is God. Maybe Armageddon is upon us after all.

  • UFUF87: Intelligent Life... It's out there somewhere.

    Really big show for you tonight. Hupp does math and talks golf all in the same podcast. That's a must see all by itself. Plus NASA says alien contact is eminent. Like ten years from now eminent. Yeah, we do the hard so you don't have to.

    There be bees here.
    As President Obama reads to kids for Easter they are attacked by a swarm of bees. The Pres turns nurturer-in-chief saying, "It's OK they won't hurt you..." as the kids scream in sheer terror. We have the audio! Go to Episode 86 to hear us make this very bee prediction!

    It's Masters Week Tony!
    In an effort to evolve Tony texts me some golf talk, even referencing Ray's Creek, After I regained consciousness we place a friendly wager on the Masters. Tune in next week to hear my winning score.

    Stand with Rand!
    Paul enters the race for the White House. His Pa is heading back to Texas. Is that an issue? Time will tell. More importantly, can he win? We think yes, but again only time will tell.
    Plus a current events quiz. Match wits with your favorite UF/UF on air personality!

  • UFUF86: Freedom's a bitch!

    Is freedom even really a thing? Who knows. We sure don't. But that doesn't stop us from pontificating about it

    Hoosiers or Homosexuals?
    Apparently the line has been drawn in Indiana. To bake or not to bake is the serious question of the day for the Hoosier state. Can you refuse to serve someone becasue they are gay? The new law in Hoo-ville says, "Yes We Can!"

    Free to be me!
    Former senate majority leader and current senator from Nevada Harry Reid says he outright lied about Mitt Romney not paying his taxes during the 2012 Presidential election. Is Harry sorry? No way! Harry thinks his little lie helped win the White House for Obama. Harry needs to retire.

    He will free your mind.
    Whoa whoa whoa. It's my pod partner Hupp himself! His fix to the gay marriage issue in America will astound you. You will actually be smarter after you hear it. Not kidding.
    All that and bees wearing little backpacks. How could you resist.

  • UFUF85: All the President's Men

    Just when you thought the clown car could not fit one more smart person, up steps Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. Big difference here though, he has officially declared. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a candidate! I say again we officially have a candidate! Is he for real?
    He's Canadian Eh?
    That's right ladies and gents. Ted Cruz, senator from Texas, darling of the Tea Party and most likely their official candidate, purveyor of the birther myth, is actually a Canadian. Born in Calgary, he renounced his Canadian citizenship. It's almost too funny, if it wasn't so tragic.

    Papa Pope's Pepperoni Pizza
    Pope gets delivery to his moving Pope mobile. If he's not the coolest dude on the planet I don't know who is.

    Is that racist?
    You bet your white hooded ass it is. Ariana Miyamoto is Japan's entry to the Miss Universe contest. A lot of Japanese have a problem with it because she's not "Japanese" enough. Well, she was born there, speaks Japanese as her primary language, and she lives there. You know what, she may have African-American DNA, but she's freaking Japanese. Hey Japan, have you seen her swimsuit picture?

    The Legacy, always the Legacy
    For a guy obsessed with his Presidential legacy Obama seems intent on making it a bad one. The White House just set the record for amount of documents sealed or redacted. They also just exempted themselves from the FOIA. So the record appears to be in jeopardy.

    You still have mail!
    The controversy seemed to die down a bit. Then the press was handed some leaked info showing Hill-dogg failed to sign her separation form when she became Sec of State. That's the form that states as a gov't employee, you will be required to turn over all e-mail sent on gov't computer or by gov't email address. Really?

    Please God, Please!
    Make room in the clown car, Republicans. The circus master himself launched an exploratory committee. Yes America, The Donald, the Hairpiece, Trump himself has now spent money on a quasi bid for the Republican nomination for President. Is America ready to be renamed Trumpinstan? We report, you decide!

    All that plus Hupp's favorite game is back. You know, the game where he likes to humiliate me, yes that one, If the poll is right... Don't miss it.

  • UFUF83: You've Got Mail!
    Something stinks in Clinton-ville. No one is that dumb unless they are hiding something. I'll bet President Clinton a bag of pork rinds his wife, while not tech savvy, is smart enough to know what she did was wrong. So the question is what is the real story? We dig deep tonight on UF/UF The Podcast.
    A trail of mail
    Hill Dogg finally addresses the e-mail controversy as only a Clinton can; laughing all the way to no consequence land. HRC laughs off the issue saying she didn't want to carry two devices to use two separate e-mail accounts. Hill, my girl, fire everyone of your aides and staffers. They're absolutely killing you.
    Heard it through the grape vine.
    So I guess it's official. The most powerful man in the world is getting his national security, domestic crisis, and just about any other pertinent news from Wolf Blitzer. Yes The situation Room with Wolf Blitzer has supplanted the Ops Center in the White House for updating the President on things that matter. Sign of the apocalypse? We report, you decide.
    We'll always have Bibi.
    Days after Israeli Prime MInister Netanyahu speaks in congress on dangers of a nuclear Iran, Senate Rs write a letter to the leader of Iran trying to warn him of the bad deal he's getting from Obama. Treasonous? Underhanded? Embarrassing? We report, I've already decided!
    What do you think?
    Did those senators commit treason by going behind the president's back to warn Iran the deal is no good or not valid?

  • UFUF 82: Fast and Loose with the Public Trust

    In coming up with the snazzy titles for our podcasts I usually peruse the script from the show. A lot of time the title jumps out at me. Today's script was not as forthcoming. But after staring at all the bullet points and thinking about what we said from them one thought hit home; Trust.
    It occurs to me that politicians, celebrities, and media are really playing fast and loose with our trust, the public trust, these days. The public trust is not to be trifled with in my opinion so it'll be interesting to see the ramifications, or if there will be any.
    Tonight on UF/UF the podcast: Fast and Loose with the Public Trust
    O'Lielly takes a bite outta Corn
    Fox News' Bill O'Reilly told some tall tales in his book about his Falkland War reporting. In a two for one deal, David Corn the editor at Mother Jones who broke the story, was clearly on a jihad against O'Reilly. Was Corn being a journalist or political hit man? We report, you decide!
    Legend of the Spin
    John Legend and Common won the best song Oscar for the movie Selma. Legend's speech cites stats showing more black men in "the system" than ever were enslaved. Is that supposed to be an apt comparison? What are we to take from the fact the slaves were innocent and most of the black men in "the system" now, committed crimes to get there? I have no idea. Do you?
    Don't drone me bro!
    In a chilling admission that sends world leaders scrambling, Martha Stewart reveals she has a squadron of drones she uses to spy on her guests. She intends to take over most of the developed world with her drone fleet. Can she be stopped? Hey Hupp has drones.
    Help us obi-Hupp! You're our only hope!

    Brian's Lyin
    NBC New Anchor Brian Williams is suspended without pay for 6 months. Will he back? How can he be? His lies about the helicopter appear to be the tip of the iceberg. Now his Katrina reporting is being investigated. Bye Bye Bri Bri.
    Haslam/Carvey 2020!
    Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) is schooling politicians, both liberal and conservative, in the art of actually governing. Not afraid of compromise, Haslam is getting things done for the people of the Volunteer State. Is he White House material? Does he look too much like Dana Carvey? Is he Dana Carvey?

    A little shameless bragging here. A picture of Frank was featured on Tiger Woods' Face Book page. He has a great swing and has been keeping his own score since he was two.

Yeah, it's gonna be that kind of show tonight. But have no fear, Sarah Palin's running for President! We're saved!

    Great show for you tonight. I promise none of this is made up. Secretary of State John Kerry did go to Paris, he did bring James Taylor, he did engage in what can best be called a creepy musical courting of Paris Mayor Anne Hildago and he did apologize to the French for jilting them on their giant march/protest type thing.
    We talked about other stuff too. But for that you have to listen.
    Is this thing on?
    Kerry and Taylor get down for the French. It is not to be believed. Here's the link so you can see for yourself. Don't say we didn't warn you.
    Patriots smash Colts in the face 45-7. Accusations fly the next day claiming Patriots tampered with/under-inflated the 12 footballs they were allotted for the game. Soft balls were definitely the problem for the Colts. But it had nothing to do with footballs. Know what I'm sayin.

  • Some crazy stuff going on this week. Lots of dumb stuff going on too. Do I even need to mention yet another of our nation's leaders invoked Hitler when discussing our President? Clearly his UF/UF subscription has lagged. Plus NASCAR's Kurt Bush says his ex is a trained assassin. Yeah, it's been that kind of week.

    Just call us Champions

    Did you think we'd start with anything other than Tony's beloved National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes? Nike Football has the quote of the day on this. "They called you undeserving. They called you an underdog. Now they have to call you something else."

    We'll always have Paris

    “Even Adolph Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn’t do it for the right reasons”

    Look at the tweet. Is a comment even necessary? All I'll say is this, freshman senators and congressmen and women would do well to hire Tony and I as their PR firm.
    From the dumb as usual files...
    David Vitter, the right old Senator from Louisiana, says Obamacare can and should be completely repealed. If the Republicans make this a debate point for 2016 will they hand the White-house to the Democrats, again? We report, you decide! (pssst yes, yes they will)

Or so says Obamacare's chief architect Jonathan Gruber, Ph.D. See, he was speaking to a room full of intellects when he said the American voter is so dumb the bill was written in such a way as to get it past them. Ain't his fault you're dumb.
    F*#@ing Spectacular
    NBC shows Patriots QB Tom Brady shouting the F word on live TV. Brady's defense, "It their problem, not mine. This is football not church." Honestly, how the f*&% can you argue with that?
    All this and more as we dissect, deconstruct, and debate the ramifications of Obamacare on the midterm Senate elections.

    Wow. Just wow. A police officer chokes a man to death for selling "loosies" or single cigarettes, it's caught on film, from beginning to end mind you, and no charges are brought against the officer. The Big Apple has worms and is need of treatment. Wanna know what we think?
    On to the tease…
    Shut up and take my money!
    The $2 threshold for gas has been broken. Without Kroger points, coupons, or any sales you can buy gas for less than $2 a gallon at several stations in Oklahoma. Not typical though as a price war has broken out there. $2.50ish seems to be national average. Thank you Obama!
    Shut up and keep my gov't open!
    The Speaker of the House is trying desperately to ward off a government shut down. The problem? The loudest advocates are in his own party and may have more clout than him. Lookin at you Ted Cruz.
    SHUT UP!
    A large number of human brains have disappeared from a University of Texas Lab. In related news renowned physicist Steven Hawking says the moment of The Singularity, when mankind can transfer his being into a machine, will be the end of the world for humans. So we got that going for us.

    Yes you read that right. 80yr old mass murderer Charles Manson is getting married, in prison, where he'll remain until he croaks. Click the link, listen, and be amazed, or you know, not.

    Oil, oil, everywhere oil.
    Except where she needs it. Democratic Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu whores herself to the Keystone XL Pipeline in hopes of keeping her seat in the runoff election early December. She promised Repubs she had the votes from her side to get the bill passed. Whoops. Senate Dems block the pipeline bill by a narrow margin, thus ending any chance Mary had of remaining in the Senate. C Ya Mare!

    A bridesmaid no more.
    80 year old Charles Manson is getting married. A 20 something year old woman, who goes by the name Star (of course she does) has been visiting the maniac murderer for years and has decided to take him as a husband. Sorry Chuck, court rules no conjugal.

    We've been Gruber'd
    Herr Gruber gives a detailed account on how the Obama administration counted on and then blamed the, and I quote, "stupidity of the American voter" in order to get the health care reform act through congress.

    Although not many survivors. The carnage was gruesome and total.
    The democrats got rolled Tuesday night. What became apparent, to me at least, was how the take over of the Senate became the minor story. The down ticket races: governors, house of representatives, city mayors, ballot amendments, all seemed to break for republicans. That became the major story as the senate was in GOP hands the second Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell close-lined Allison Lundergan Grimes by a huge margin.
    Even bigger story tonight, we are no longer faceless voices. Our non-compete clause with the U. S. Air Force has expired (not really) and we’re back baby. Feast your eyes on the glory that is Hupp and Linardo back on camera, together, without need of legal counsel. Watch our intro then click the link to the greatest podcast ever produced by two old fat guys with internet access. It’s our first appearance on camera since 2004 so go easy. They will get better.

    Ohh that stings a bit!
    Hard to describe what happened to democrats on Tuesday. Whatever it was rest assured the President’s final two years just got a lot more difficult. But at least he has two more years. Several of his party are heading for the government cheese line.

    The Dead Pool
    Kim Jong Un gets ready for the spooktacular by purging his cabinet. No, not chucking his lima beans and old pork rinds, the boy assassinated 10 of his advisers from the royal cabinet. AWho's running this government? Great question, we have no answer.

    Paul gets Randy
    Kentucky Senator and 2016 Pres hopeful ups the ante by shifting his campaign away from the republican primaries and towards the national race by attacking Hill-Dogg. Mitt did this to great effect during the republican primary in 2012. He won the nomination with that strategy. Can Rand out-Mitt Mitt? Paul obviously thinks Clinton the women to beat on the Dem side. The question is can he do it?

  • UFUF 65: Dems, Dwarfs, and Dictators
    Guess what gang, it's election season. The mid-term elections are upon us and the candidates are cranking up the stupid. From a cripple bashing Dem running for Governor in Texas to a tight lipped Dem running for Senate in Kentucky, Hupp and I cover all the gaffes fit to mock. Plus - dwarf strippers impregnating an entire bachelor party! Well not the entire party, just the bride to be. Either way that's a quality show right there.
    Sweep the leg!
    You gotta problem with that! Well Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis doesn't. She unveiled an ad this week in which she takes shots at her challenger, a wheelchair bound paraplegic, for being in a wheel chair. She's down big in the polls so it's not an unprecedented move and the ad is not nearly as bad as we've all made it sound. But still the optics of the whole thing in unseemly and probably only hurts her in the long run.
    That's not mine!
    Uh yeah it is. Married only 9 months, a young husband is taken aback as a dwarf baby is brought to him in the hospital. Thinking the nurse brought the wrong baby from the nursery, his wife confesses to having sex with a dwarf stripper the night before the wedding. Holy crap. I. Can't. Even.
    Return of the UN!
    He's back! And he's ba.... no he's limping, and walking with a cane. Kim Jung Un had been out of the spotlight in North Korea for a while now. After a plea from the UF/UF audience, Kim reappears. Looking doughy, ill, and limping, the dear leader doesn't look long for this world. We report, you decide!
    All this plus a new game show from the twisted mind of Hupp. Not sure he's settled on a name yet, something like Politck-tionary or Stump the Dummy, or something. Either way, it's all designed to make me look the fool on a semi-live broadcast. Tune in to see if Hupp can trip me up!

Tonight we bring you beached walruses - lots of em, bad service that's no longer a secret, and republicans searching for themselves. Plus MITT'S GONNA RUN! The big questions is, who does this help and who does it hurt. The answers might surprise you.
    Well gee Tennessee...
    Tennessee Tuxedo and about 50,000 of his walrus friends went looking for summer sea ice on which to copulate. Finding none they went to the next best place, Sarah Palin's house. That's right, it's a walrus orgy on the shores of Alaska because the sea ice usually there for the walruses to mate on is gone. Thanks a lot Obama!
    Can you keep a secret?
    No, no they can't. They also can't keep the President safe either. And since that's their main function in life I'd say we have a problem at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The woman who took over the Secret Service after the South American Hooker scandal has created a few of her own, to include lying to a congressional hearing on how a retired vet managed to jump the fence and get to the east room with a knife. Let's not even discuss the armed man who got on an elevator with Obama, completely unchecked. Yikes.
    Mitt cracked the door a little wider on a 2016 run for the aforementioned unsecured White House. Now he'll run if the opposition in the republican primary is not too formidable as he's not up for a 6 month slug fest. Gang, book it here book it now, Mitt Romney is running for President in 2016...
    ... or is he? we report, you decide!

    Congress Approves Obama bill?!?!
    No not that bill, the other one. The bill sending arms, aid and most likely troops to Syria. The only other time the Republican House moved that quick on a bill was when they voted themselves a raise.
    As you read this votes are being counted. The polls in Scotland have closed and by 6am our time on Friday morning the world will know whether the Scots will finally be free of Great Britain. The dream of William Wallace is one ballot away.

  • UFUF59: The Opacity of Hope

    Well, the President made a cool million on his first book, The Audacity of Hope. He used that to springboard to a presidential campaign where he claimed he would run the most transparent administration in history. Several reporters, one put on the no fly list and another awaiting a ruling on a subpoena filed by the Obama Whitehouse that would put him in jail, might have a different view. Tonight we examine the opaque-ness of the "...greatest enemy a free press ever had." (James Risen referring to the Obama administration's war on reporters)
    If you write it they will come!
    You curious if the government really has a squad of Men in Black? Well, just pen a little article about something Obama either did wrong or did illegally, you'll see the MIB soon enough. Just ask James Rosen of Fox News.

    If they write it you know it's click bait!
    ESPN just can't get them enough of one Michael Sam. You know Michael, the guy drafted 2nd to last in the 7 round NFL draft. He's trying to make the St. Louis Ram's final roster. If you're curious about his performance, go anywhere but ESPN. Why? Well the World Wide Leader is only giving us the hard data, like Michael Sam's shower habits (not kidding).

    If the Moscow Times writes it, then by God you know it's gospel truth! (sort of).

    The headlines and accompanying stories from the papers in Russia seem more like justification pieces for total invasion of Ukraine and surrounding countries. Is this the first rivet in the new Iron Curtain about to fall on Eastern Europe? We report, you decide in our new segment Galloping the Globe!

    NaNo NaNo no more...
    Robin Williams, aka Mork from Ork and countless other characters, commits suicide by hanging himself in his home. Was the press off base with their glorifying manner of reporting his suicide? Was the sheriff's office out of line releasing the blow by blow to include when rigor set in and where the blood pooled in his body? We report you decide?
    C'mon bro, hug it out. C'mon man, give me some sugar....just a little
    Hillary Clinton began the separation from the President on matters of foreign policy. In an attempt to get free of his record prior to her run to glory, has Hill-Dogg bitten the hand that could feed her. Just in case, the Pres and Clinton hugged it out on TV. Check for your wallet Obama. I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin.

    That's right ladies and gents, the Speaker of the House, the 2nd most powerful man in the government, is taking Obama to court. Looking for law in all the wrong places, is John of Orange just giving the Dems ammo for November? We report, you decide!
    Don't call me Francis...
    In a most despicable move, the House of Representatives, namely the Republicans in the House, have blocked a bill honoring Pope Francis. The reason for the heinous blocking? The pope is too liberal because of his aid to the poor and his denouncement of trickle down economics. Folks this is what you get when you elect a bunch of know nothing, tea partiers.

I mean if @ilikebigbutts from Palo Alto California doesn't have the straight dope on a Malaysian flight shot down over Ukraine, by Russian separatists, aided by a former KGB officer, well then who the hell does!?! Miss Hill-Dogg yet?
    Are you smarter than the 5th Estate?
    Yeah you probably are. Tonight we discuss the lofty ideals of our free press and wonder if it has ever lived up to the mythical standard. Was Walter Cronkite as liberally biased as Rachel Maddow of MSNBC is? Was Edward R Murrow pushing an agenda like Sean Hannity of Fox News does? We report, you decide!
    Just like Jackie? You mean Jackie Robinson? No, not even close.
    We'll be posting longer stories on this next week but the comparisons of Jackie Robinson, the first black player in Major League Baseball, to Michael Sam, the first openly gay player in the NFL have to stop.

    I'll have the big fat nothing burger.
    The President was on a fund raising trip to Delaware when the Malaysian flight was shot out of the sky killing all 300+ people on board. Instead of making a statement, he went to a burger joint recommended by Crazy Joe Biden. The Prez's only thoughts on the matter, "I think it will be a terrible tragedy." Then he said , "And super size my fries." (not really)
    I'll have the Crimea, with a side of Kiev, oh and some Borscht!

    Comrade President Putin started this mess in the Crimea. Is he to blame, no matter who shot the plane down? With so many troops massed on the Ukraine border is he long from invading the entire country and taking the capital city of Ukraine? Does he really eat borscht? That stuff is nasty.

    Hey Cletus, watch this!

    Really big show for you tonight. I can't believe I'm typing this but Cleveland Ohio is dominating the news right now. The RNC picked Cleveland for their presidential convention in 2016 and LeBron James is said to be seriously considering a return to the Cavaliers. Both of those astound me, but since Hupp is from there he'll be carrying most of the podcast tonight... like most nights.

    We may talk about other stuff or we may just say Cleveland a lot.
    Cleveland Rocks...

    Or it least it should be rocking come August of 2016. That's when the Republicans will announce their candidate for President at their convention. In a bold move Reince Prebius picked Cleveland over Dallas in an attempt to garner more Ohio votes. Nice thought, but shouldn't this guy be unemployed by now?

    Cleveland is the City!
    It may just be in a midwest state but Cleveland is the current center of the sports world as LeBron James looks for a place to play this up-coming NBA season. Add to that the happening that is Johnny Manziel aka Johnny Football, and well you could, by month's end have the two biggest personalities in their respective sport playing in the Mistake by the Lake.

    Oh yeah this happened...
    Non-Cleveland related but US Representative Louie Gohmert (R) Texas, has put forth a proposal to defund the White House. No, sadly, not making this up. Do any of these dopes think past their noses? Let's say he's successful but then a Republican wins in 2016. Is Christie just gonna live in Jersey and commute to DC?

So get some popcorn as we go head to head over the Supreme Court and the most popular sport on the planet.
    Where did our love go?
    Obama roughed up by the Supremes. The Supreme Court that is. Hobby Lobby plays the hypocritical faith card and wins. What's worse, the Court says Obama can't make recess appointments if John of Orange says the House is in a session even if no one is present. That's gotta sting.
    He's back and off crack!!!!
    Well for the moment he is. The coolest mayor in North America is back from rehab and ready to run Toronto again. The question; is Toronto ready? Is the world ready? I know I'm ready.
    Move over Jim.
    The results are in and Obama is now polling as the worst President (33%) since WWII. But it's not Jimmy Carter that has to move over. He's only polling at around 7%.

  • Listen:
  • So yeah I know we're well past April 15th but you better recognize. The IRS is roaming free and doing what they want and getting away with it I might add. You need to keep 7 years of tax info in case they audit you, but don't ask them for a year's worth of e-mails about an ultra sensitive topic that could endanger the President by way of impeachment. Look man they have a lot of e-mails, just not the e-mails that implicate the President. In the words of Dana Carvey's Church Lady, "Isn't That Nice."
    We'll talk about some other stuff too.
    Don't e-mail us we'll e-mail you.
    The IRS loses a particular set of e-mails that might just detail the interaction between them and the President in regards to the IRS targeting Tea Party groups for harassment. AL other e-mails on the subject between everyone else have been turned over but somehow just the e-mails between IRS and the White House are missing. How could that have happened? Damn cyber space, it's so quirky.
    The Tea Party is dead. Long live blah blah blah....
    Hey if anyone can turn an uncontested slam dunk into a long range three with the best defender in your face it's the Republican Party. The establishment was on defense last night and they rejected the mini surge the Tea Party got from knocking out the Majority Leader last month. So in the primaries this week Tea Party - 1 Republican Establishment - 20ish. A blood bath it was.
    All Lawyered Up
    Theoretically the most powerful person in the government after the President, the Speaker of the House John of Orange has resorted to hiring a mouth piece to sue the President over his use of executive orders. Welcome to loserville Mr. Speaker. This is not a good look John. I mean the tan is hideous but this, this is something else. Has the smell of desperation to it.

  • Listen:
  • So a good show for you tonight. We delve into the depressing world of hate in American politics. We cover it all from Rep. Steve King calling the President dirty names to John McCain blasting the President over Iraq while pics float around of the Senator literally arm in arm with ISIS, the group currently waging war on free Iraqis. Plus Hupp hates on soccer and the World Cup.
    He's being Ironical.
    So the guy who yelled out "You Lie!" during a State of the Union speech, and the guy you have to practically bribe to get any traction in Iowa come presidential campaign time, has called the President Kim Jong POTUS. Yes Rep. Steve King (R) of Iowa says the Pres. is more like a dictator. Try getting in the Iowa straw poll or on the ballot in Iowa without King's say so. The irony! It stings!
    Back to the future?
    Are we seeing the future of relations in the Middle East? The Sec of State and the President both allude to a possible deal with Iran to help stabilize the Iraq situation. Go ahead, take a minute, let that sink in. Of course that decision should come under serious scrutiny, but let's not get crazy. Oh OK let's. John McCain et al, blast the Pres. for even entertaining such ideas. Meanwhile a 2013 pic of McCain hanging with his new BFFs, the terror group causing all the problems in Iraq, hits the internet. The irony! It blinds me!
    Leave it open and they will come.
    The U.S. decides to allow any illegal immigrants who are under the age of 18 to stay in America. Let's try to guess what happens next. Yep. Hundreds if not thousands of kids are coming, being pushed, being smuggled into the U.S. of A. Who thinks sleeping in a cement detainment facility in south west Texas is better than being in their own country with their families? I don't. I can't imagine throwing my 5yr old over a fence into a country where he'll be an orphan, can't speak the language and has almost no future waiting for him.

  • Episode 50: Down goes Cantor! Down goes Cantor!
  • Listen:
  • Whoa nelly, take me home! I don't know what I've seen but I know I have seen too much!
    Republican Majority Leader in the House of Representatives Eric Cantor loses his primary election against Republican Tea Party challenger David Brat. Yeah you read that right. The most powerful Republican in the House will no longer be in the House, no longer be the Majority Leader after getting pounded by an economics professor from Randolph-Macon College in Ashland Virginia.
    The effects of this are yet to be seen. Is this the start of a run on establishment Republicans by the Tea Party? Has the Tea Party come back from the dead? Were they ever dead to begin with? Is this just another battle in the civil war raging inside the Republican Party? Is this good or bad for Republicans, Congress, the country? We'll talk, you listen, then make up your own mind.
    David Brat orders a De-Cantor
    Nobody from nowhere that no one saw coming beats top House Republican. Sounds like Mr. Smith goes to Washington right? Has to be a movie script right? Wrong. David Brat, school teacher, spender of no money, takes down Eric Cantor, the Majority Leader in congress. Cantor's internal polling people had him up by 34%. Cantor lost by 11%. Do the math, don't do the math, that's huge suckage on an epic scale.
    Hagel takes the Hill...
    ...alone. All alone. DoD Secretary Chuck Hagel testifies in congress over the Beau Bergdahl incident. As we've seen over and over, the Administration is lacking in what you would call full throated support of one of its cabinet members. Hagel is not going down alone though. He made it clear who was calling the final shots and it wasn't him.
    Turn out the lights. The party is ....over?
    Apparently not. The reports of the Tea Party demise was greatly exaggerated it seems. After not winning one primary election in early April, they win a big one last night. Taking down the Majority Leader was a big surprise, but really how much did the Tea Party have to do with that? They're taking credit but Brat's not crediting them very much. This story within the story may have legs. Stay tuned.

    I'd like to buy a brain, Pat...
    As in lack there of. Letter Man Sajack goes off on twitter about what morons global warming/climate change believers are. Then he goes full Doocy, as in Fox News weather man Steve Doocy; "It's cold, where's the warming?" Really Pat. Staring at Vanna's amazing booty has softened your brain.

    Give me an M, Pat...
    As in Mitch McConnell. The Tea Party made good on its promise and takes down Mitch McConn... Oh wait no, no they actually got crushed by the Kentucky Senator. My bad. To add insult to injury, Big Time Mitch has Tea Party guy KY Sen Rand Paul open his victory speech. Don't f*&K with Mitch!

    Is there a B, Pat...
    As in Martha Stewart's Boobs! The felonious homemaker smuggled contraband cooking items out of the prison kitchen back to her cell area in her prison issued bra, where she whipped up eats for the cell block. I'll bet she made some new girlfriends with that little maneuver. I have a new respect for Martha and her sweater puppets.

  • A really big show for you tonight. Round two of the new game sweeping the nation, Podcast Political Pop Quiz! Get your pencils and paper ready gang, it's a barn burner tonight. We'll also talk about our favorite dictator and our least favorite government - our own! Congress is about to convene a special panel to investigate Benghazi, will they finally get to the truth or will they devolve into a giant politically motivated cluster f*%k.
    He's one of those guys now...
    Karl "The Architect" Rove goes on live television and says Hillary Clinton has brain damage and her health should be a major question for the 2016 race. He stinks of attention desperation so bad I can smell him through my computer. Don't be that jackass Karl, don't be.
    This will not end well...
    The House has convened a special commission to investigate Benghazi even though 3 separate investigations have been conducted by the Republican side of the House. Leadership has said three things to R's running for reelection: 1.Don't fund raise off of this issue. 2.Don't pile on Hillary. 3.Find the truth don't make this an indictment of Obama. Well zero out of three ain't bad. Congressman Trey Gowdy may be the one guy who can keep this ship from running aground.
    Jesus phone home...
    The coolest guy on the planet just said the coolest thing ever uttered by a Pope. Francis says he'll baptize Martians if they so desire. Putting the IN in Inclusive, the Pope is reshaping the Catholic church and Christianity in large swaths. But a question remains. Does Christ's Vicar on Earth know something about a pending Martian presence the rest of us don't? We report, you decide!

    eird show tonight. An unintentional theme popped up so we just ran with it. In short, as campaigners, the Republicans couldn't hit the water if they fell off a boat. We talk about several examples of the Rs blowing their own feet off just 6 short months from a chance at taking the Senate and retaining the House. Can the recover? Can they win? We report, you decide!
    Timing, it's always the timing.
    Ill informed and ill timed, our gal Sarah tags Rep Paul Ryan as a RINO. It was less than two years ago she was hailing him as the savior of conservatism now she's calling him a joke and a RINO. Mid-term elections are this November, was the really the time for this SP?
    Blocky McBlockertons
    GOP stops the Fair Pay Act. Legislation was crappy but the Rs seem unprepared for the spin applied by the Democrats. So what looks like a good decision to stop bad legislation is being reported as another road block by the party of NO. RNC Chair Reince Priebus is not ready for the big leagues. Should the Rs change horses right before the mid-term elections? You bet your ass they should, if they want to have a chance in 2016.
    You have to vote for it to find out what's in it?
    Speaker Boehner pulls a Pelosi and sneaks a bill past House members. The bill fixes medicare holes that would hurt doctors, but unknown to Tea Party members who did vote for it, the bill expands Obama-care making it easier for small business to sign up. The tri-corner hat guys are pissed and have declared war on establishment repubs. Get your popcorn folks, this is gettin good.

What will Bill do now; be a man and follow through, or be a weasel and lie about them forcing him out. We report you decide! (But I think we all know what this lesser evolved, human type being will do.)
    Unconsciously Idiotic
    Gwyenth Paltrow and Chris Martin are no more. But so as not to be confused with the unwashed masses they will consciously uncouple instead of divorce. Or as we call it - divorce.

Also, Tony bullies me in a brand new episode of the hottest game show in the world: Who Said That returns tonight!
    On to the tease…
    It's a conundrum
    Hill-dogg is in a tough spot. Benghazi won't go away. Worse still she may run unopposed for the democratic nomination. With no one to vent her spleen against in the primary, she'll carry all that baggage into the general election.
    Two Ferns and a lot of tears.
    The Pres goes on a comedy bit and the conservatives explode. Bill O'Reily almost cried on his own program he was so upset the president used "Between to Ferns" to pimp Obamacare. Say what you will about O, but he can bring the hissy from the Right.

We get a rare look at a murder trial, some extra curriculars after the mics go dead at a Senate hearing, and the Pope endears himself to yet another segment of the population. Can that guy get any cooler? We report, you decide!

    Holy translation, Pontif!
    His Holiness, Pope Francis I, gives the papal blessing in Italian. He easily mistakes the word Cazzo (penis or dick, used like we use the F-word here) for the word Caso (for example). After a quick correction the Pope, who's Latino not Italian, gets back on track. The blessing goes viral and the man bringing reform to the Catholic Church enhances his coolness quotient exponentially.

    Issa be telling you to shut your mouth!

    No, Jar Jar Binks has not become a US Representative, that's just California Rep Darryl Issa closing up shop after Lois Lerner, IRS director who should be in chains, takes the 5th after she said she would testify. After the mics were turned off, Rep Elijah Cummings (D) can be heard lambasting Issa. Later Cummings says he was trying to help Issa. Calling him a cazzo might have been more useful.

    Ellen DeGeneres, No Homo!
    Somehow a very funny joke about Lizza Mennelli has caused Ellen DeGeneres to be tagged as a homophobic & transphobic American. Well folks I give up. Because Ellen said "Sir that's the best Mennelli impersonation I've ever seen" she is now in the same group as cazzos like Rick Santorum and Phil Robertson?

    Good show for you tonight. A little change up from our normal routine. We are politics light and culture heavy for this episode. You’ll be spoiled with another new bit called Culture Clash. As is always the case it will be accompanied by the best bumper music in the business. We think you’ll like it.
    Who we gonna call now?
    A comedic light has been extinguished. Harold Ramis, known to most of us as Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters, passed away this week. He was 69. You wanna talk success? He was a writer, actor, or director, sometimes all three at once, in these films: Animal House, Caddy Shack, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Stripes, Ghostbusters I & II, Back to School, Groundhog Day, and Analyze This. Just to name a few.
    Uncle Sam don’t want you!
    In the same breath and with a straight face, the Obama administration says the US will withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan and then draw the Army down to pre-WWII levels. Who feels the pain more, active members or retirees and are the other branches of the military far behind. Either way, it’s a big shit sandwich and we all gotta take a bite. (Full Metal Jacket)
    N stands for not a good idea.
    The NFL is going to penalize a team 15 yards if a player uses the N word during the game. Great. I can hear the call now, “We have the illegal use of a racial slur, number 93, defense….oh wait my bad, 39, yeah 39 is the racist not 93. My bad peeps.” This won’t end well.

    The US begins to assert its dominance at the winter Olympics in Sochi. Medaling in events they haven't been competitive in for 60 years or more, the US team is peeing on Putin's propaganda parade. The final straw, US men's hockey squashed the Russian National team and it wasn't even hard work let alone a miracle.
    Zero G and I feel Fine!
    John Glenn had no idea when he became the first American to orbit the earth that he'd be followed by a swimsuit model wearing an eye patch for a bikini. Kate Upton went through zero gravity for a photo shoot wearing a suit that proved unable to contain all her wonderfulness. I'm guessing that was the point.

    No White Gold in these hills
    Shaun White backs out of the slope style event to save his energy for the half pipe. Probably should have sparked up a pipe, the red haired wonder comes up fourth and out of the medals at Sochi.
    Down goes Zimmerman, down goes....

    And a little Carney shall lead them…
    The circus is in full swing at the White House. After putting out enrollment figures for Obamacare, Major Garret questions Carney about validity.

He later goes on Fox (of course) to say he lost his composure. Really? REALLY?
    State of the State of the Union
    It’s bad folks. I mean it’s really bad. The State of the Union speech has become a joke. First of all there is no requirement for the Pres to give a speech. It can just be submitted in writing.

He had to hustle back to Wisconsin to prepare for the primary challenge he'll face from the Tea Party wing of his own party.

    Intentional or not, the disaster that is the health care web site has a lot of people asking if the President knew how bad things were before the roll out of Obamacare. If he did not, then why not? If he did, why not delay?

    Father of the Frankenstein?

    Karl Rove and John McCain have been on the offensive AGAINST the Tea Party lately. But does the guy who spiraled up the tea party that gave us Christine O'Donnell and the guy who almost made Sarah Palin Vice President have a right to attack the very thing they asked for?

    The news has been fast and furious to say the least. Listen to our take here:

    Weiner’s in!
    Disgraced NY Congressman Anthony Weiner is running for NY City Mayor. Already dodging questions about how many more crotch shots might be floating in the web -o-sphere. Can a 2016 run be far behind

    The Donald: Dropping coin, checking temps.
    Trump spends 1 mil on presidential exploratory committee. How awesome would that be. Will America say “your hired!” Probably not but presidential races can always use a good carnival barker. Lets hope he stays in to the convention

  • Whistle blowers are coming forward in droves now. Not just disgruntled State Department employees, but current CIA operatives and admin folk. 2016 is a long way off but Hil-Dogg may be damaged goods after this.

    Obama administration caught using the Department of Justice to spy on reporters from the Associated Press. On the same day this story breaks, it quietly gets out that Vladimir Putin has a “US Diplomat”/CIA agent in custody, embarrasses him on Russian television, and kicks him out of the country. Ryan Christopher Fogle was nabbed after trying to recruit a Russian into the CIA. Too bad for Ryan that Russian was an undercover secret service agent.
    All this plus a lively, and I do mean lively, debate on wether the Government has overstepped their bounds in the sexual education of our children.
