Last minute Easter candy shopping meant Fingers’ children were stuck eating white chocolate bunnies, the horror. Fingers got a deal on new washer dryer but he didn’t realize it would include a fireworks display thanks to some DIY rewiring. This naturally led to a mini rant about the insane liquor laws of our respective states, Indiana and Pennsylvania. Let our liquor go dammit!
“This is a man who said he’d never run a negative ad ever. He’s now running them. They’re planning to run more… Let’s see the tone of the campaign he wants to run before we get to any other questions.”
I think it’s time for #FlashbackFriday, yes I know it’s only Tuesday, but what difference does that make?
But the attack that received the most pop, on cable television and blogs, came after a photograph of Mr. Obama in ceremonial African garb appeared on the Drudge Report, and the item’s author, Matt Drudge, claimed that the image was provided by a Clinton staff member.
Mr. Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, said that the Clinton campaign had “engaged in the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we’ve seen from either party.” It has not been independently verified that the photograph came from the Clinton campaign.
Mrs. Clinton’s new campaign manager, Maggie Williams, recently appointed to bring a tougher hand to the operation, issued a withering reply, not taking responsibility for the photograph but attacking the Obama campaign for suggesting that the photograph amounted to fear-mongering imagery.
“Enough,” Ms. Williams’s statement began. “If Barack Obama’s campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed. Hillary Clinton has worn the traditional clothing of countries she has visited and had those photos published widely.”
“This is nothing more than an obvious and transparent attempt to distract from the serious issues confronting our country today and to attempt to create the very divisions they claim to decry,” she added. “We will not be distracted.”
Clinton advisers said the attacks were partly an effort to knock Mr. Obama off balance before the debate on Tuesday.
I don’t recall a big hubbub at the time about Hillary’s tone, but 2016 is a different ballgame. Watching the Sandernistas swarm to twitter and push back on latest, “LEAVE HILLARY ALONE!” with #ToneDownForWhat was wildly entertaining.
There aren’t any big primaries this week so we had to dig deep to find something to speculate wildly about. As luck would have, some dufus over at Politico thinks that Hildo should tap Al Franken to be her running mate. Sorry BernieBros your boy Blue! doesn’t have a chance at getting the nom. It’s time to give it up and help us figure out if there is anyone alive that could help the old bag beat Trump, cause Franken ain’t it. I think we’ve come up with the best answer, the only person on the planet that could drag old Rodham over the finish line and into the Oval is….
First an update about America’s favorite rape hoaxer Jackie! Even though everyone is painfully aware that Jackie lied about every single aspect of her story, she and her lawyers are attempting to shield Jackie from having to turn over her communications with UVa Dean Eramo and Rolling Stone, by claiming that as a victim of sexual assault, she’s entitled to certain protections. Um, yeah, here’s the thing, she’s not a victim of anything, SHE MADE IT ALL UP!
CAROL ROTH was kind enough to grace us with her presence!
We got the skinny on the new Mark Burnett, who’s that? asks Fingers. Seriously dude haven’t you ever heard of Survivor, The Voice, The Apprentice, SharkTank? Unreal, anyway, so Carol is bringing all of her badassness to the small screen for the new reality competition series America’s Greatest Makers which premieres on Tuesday April 5th at 9 pm EST on TBS. She gave us a sneak peak of all the awesomeness that awaits.
We chatted about Cuba and what free markets could do to change the lives of its citizens. Notice I wrote could, not will. There are a lot of ifs involved, so no, you shouldn’t be running out to invest in a McDonald’s franchise in Havana.
Then we had to get serious for a minute and talk about the current state of the US economy. Long story short, it isn’t doing so hot, but compared to the rest of the world it looks pretty good. Now, if you were Carol, you might refer to this phenomenon as the equivalent of being the skinniest kid at fat camp. And that ladies and gentlemen is why we love having Carol on the show! If you’re interested in more fabulous one-liners mixed in with some invaluable business advice, I highly recommend checking out Carol’s book The Entrepreneur Equation.
And that’s a wrap! Thank you all for tuning in. A new episode will drop next week. All episodes will be posted to SoundCloud. You can also subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn. Check the feed often, you never know when we’re going to drop an Enough Already Bite.
On the very first episode of the Enough Already Podcast, Fingers and Tracy covered a lot of ground. If you were trying to keep up but lost track of all of the awesomeness, here’s a quick recap and links for you to follow if you so chose.
The Week that was
One of our intellectual superiors from The Federalist has a cunning plan to supplant Gary Johnson and replace him with someone that conservatives can vote for! Will the #NeverTrumps never learn that their “We know what’s best for everyone!” schtick is partially to blame for the rise of he who shall never be voted for?
Learn more about Gary Johnson than anyone at The Federalist seems to know by listening to a few of his speeches and appearances which are all conveniently compiled on iTunes.
If you haven’t listened to Tom Woods and Lew Rockwell’s incredibly insightful and wildly entertaining debate commentary, you might want to clear your schedule for the next few hours and head over to TomWoods.com or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher and check them out. You’re welcome.
The Week to come
Head Counselor at Camp Clintonia David Brock has been working on some serious strategery. Look for Camp Clintonia to start firing (metaphorically of course, apologies for the use of incendiary language) bombs at the Trump Train in the very near future.
Ashe Schow from the Washington Examiner tried to help us make sense of the crazy world in which we live. Answering the tough questions we all ponder while lying awake at night: Are female birds plain-Janish on purpose? Could it be that their drab colored feathers are actually the result of centuries of sexual harassment? Ashe has the answer!
If you thought that Matress Girl was cancelled after one season boy were you wrong. Ashe has an update about what we can expect when season two starts.
The So-ing Circle
Sarah Smith and Ashe Schow joined the So-ing Circle this week to tackle the news stories the mainstream media just won’t touch.
Does all this talk about brokered conventions, contested conventions, rule changes blah blah etc have your head spinning? You’re not alone. That’s why we asked The Daily Caller’s Kerry Picket to stop by and help us cut through all the clutter and explain just what the hell could down in Cleveland (rocks!) this summer. Kerry has been chronicling the road to the convention at the Daily Caller, here are some suggested readings from her coverage:

Well, not quite yet. But Thursday will be our last Snark Factor. After seven years and 1000 or so shows, I think it’s time to move on. I want to thank everyone at FTR Radio for helping me put this thing together. Tom Reynolds, Mike Gay, Melanie Hall, Paul Croteau and Thomas LaDuke have created a great platform at FTR Radio. I can’t wait to see what they do with it.
Leslie and Elisha, thank you for being our AnnouncerBabes.
I also want to thank former Snark Factor Newsbabes Molly Teichman, Sarah Rumpf, Tania Gail and MetalBabe Michelle Moore. You were there in the beginning and helped build our audience. We had a lot of laughs.
To the current Snark Factor Players: Tracy Connors, Amy Miller, Ashe Schow and Thomas LaDuke – thank you. I’ll put our team up against anyone in radio. We had a lot of fun. I love you guys.
Finally, thank you to everyone who tuned in. I will still write at The Washington Times. I also have a few projects I have been kicking around. I hope to announce something soon.
Fingers bursts an anurism over the establishment’s latest attacks on Trump’s supporters. Why can’t anyone talk to each other in a civilized manner anymore? Trump and Rubio were fighting while the show was on the air. The gang gives a blow by blow discription of the Houston GOP debate.
