Frank Bruni

I love the fact that he likes Pete Buttigieg for 2024!!!

Maybe you can make this happen ;-)

Stay Tuned continues to be insightful and, I daresay by now, influential? I'd like to make the following suggestion, germane to the Santos Circus: Santos (he seems to be gifted, like Zelig) should become the official Congressional House Jester, paid by the Republicons (not the US Taxpayer), but no longer able to cast a vote or be on a Congressional committee. He shall put on a show, in drag, every week and make both sides of the aisle laugh. Meanwhile his "constituents" on Long Island must get their act together and have a new election for someone to occupy his former seat ASAP.

I listen to Preet all the time, especially love the shows that he does withIan Bremmer, I think a New Year’s eve show would be great. I’d be tuning in.
