Allison, Don, and Noah discuss three topics of incomparable importance, and end with an anecdote each about something in Israel that made them smile this week.


.How do you solve a problem like Ted Cruz?

    I’ll tell you how you “square that circle”: Ted Cruz is a vicious clown. He will never be President.

    Those ten thousand people who were standing up and cheering for Israel were there under duress. They were students of Liberty University who were going to be fined ten bucks if they failed to attend.

    The right-wing Republican Christianist tribe in the USA “loves” Israel to the extent that it fits into their eschatology. Which includes the destruction of Israel and all Jews who don’t convert perishing in fire. May the god I don’t believe in forbid anyone full of that “love” ever sits in the Oval Office.
