We toast daiquiris this episode! Not the red ones, y’all!! This classic cocktail, which is nothing like its popular frozen version, is refreshingly light and simple to make. Cheers to making a proper cocktail with items already in your home!

Also discussed: #thanksObama, booty, Puerto Rico, wig-snatching, Christmas gifts, death by shame, the return of Groper Cleveland, AJs in therapy, and drinking to the roaring 20s!

Stephanie details Operation Northwoods. It is by a wide margin the most sinister mission that spun out of the JFK administration. It was that time we undeniably planned to trick the American public into supporting a war with Cuba.

Tux talks impeachment y’all! He tells the story of a president who travelled the country fanning the flames of racism, division and hatred. A president who viewed his opponents with open and vocal disdain. A president who was stubborn and combative and hostile when the country really needed unity and leadership. A president who worked hard to undo the achievements of his predecessor using executive power. This president, of course, is Andrew Johnson.
