Digging For Peanuts

This week on a very special episode of Secretly Timid, we remain Sarahless but she sent us a comforting care package.  This comes in handy when Megan discusses how the government doesn’t care about your student loan debit and Otieno suggests there’s a concerted attempt to overwhelm the progressive US electorate with garbage data.  But hey, vote Blue ya’ll.  Seriously.  For now.

This week’s Hot Topics include:

Addendum from Otieno :  it was  McCleskey vs Kemp, Sandra Day O’Connor not RBG, and the phrase was:

“The Court next states that its unwillingness to regard petitioner’s evidence as sufficient is based in part on the fear that recognition of McCleskey’s claim would open the door to widespread challenges to all aspects of criminal sentencing…Taken on its face, such a statement seems to suggest a fear of too much justice.”

Karmic Tsunami

On this week’s episode, Cindy, Jon, Otieno, and Regina discuss Milo Yiannopoulos’s recent appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, ICE raids, and a heated exchange between Charles Blow and Kayleigh McEnany.
