The Week that was:
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!
Speaking of booze…
“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.”
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.

The Week Ahead
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….
It’s time for some ASHE KICKING!
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!
Then it was on to New Jersey, a decent state with insanely inane gun laws. Did you know that you need to have a permit for an Airsoft gun in New Jersey?! Well you do. And not knowing is no excuse, go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.
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, Shark Tank? 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.
