Sharp post-debate analysis

I like the hosts' breakdown of the Dems' debate. Debate policies were unearthed after a long debate among several candidtes. Great comment from Steve about the Kurds being the U.S.'s "most betrayed" ally.

Your opinion of us

One might think a journalist would be interested in what the public thinks or has to say about “bills becoming laws.” Not these two. They would rather read essays, write about other stuff, catch up on laundry. It is harder for the politicians to ignore citizens to their faces at in person meetings. But at least the politicians don’t brag about being so disinterested in us, nor such glee for the new options to kill time while we make our voices heard. 1 🌟 for 2 🤡
