The Josh Duggar shocker takes up a considerable amount of time today. The Boy Scouts of America are finally coming around to reality, it seems. Irish abroad are heading home to vote in today's historic referendum on marriage equality. Greg Dworkin agrees to come in (and fight through technical difficulties) on his birthday to round up stories on ACA's increasing popularity and entrenchment, Chris Christie's attempt at recovery that hometown papers aren't buying, handicapping who gets into the Gop debates, Obama's (un) lame duck status, a peek inside the American Board of Internal Medicine's finances, and Bill O'Reilly's in hot water (and in denial) again. NYT reporter goes way out on a limb on Hillary. Armando joins in to discuss the Duggar & O'Reilly news. Kansas, whose governor blows a lot, takes punishing the poor to a new level. Journos begin admitting they were wrong about the "Fight for $15." Self-driving cars might not necessarily kill us all.

Today, I'm just going to say, "Josh Duggar" over and over for one hour and fifty-two minutes.

Then, Rosalyn MacGregor's Michigan update will fill the rest.

Oh, wait. Greg.

OK, Greg will interrupt me by saying "Josh Duggar" before I do for half an hour, then I'll go, then Rosalyn.

Greg Dworkin rounds up stories about Rand Paul's non-filibuster, Huckabee passing on the IA straw poll, Fox setting the rules on who'll debate, media still mad at Hillary, and how Luis Lang was short-changed by the media, and could end up getting screwed again. Finally, ICD codes: an insider's peek at games doctors play to pass the time. A reminder of the somewhat sketchy practice of Members of Congress living (rent & utility-free) in their offices. The NSA's back door into your smartphone. One of the bikers arrested in the Waco shootout was among the group lobbying for looser gun laws at the TX capitol. State legislatures increasingly banning local bans. On everything. Scotland Yard once thought Star Trek fans were a national security threat. Florida bar owner shows us the worst thing wrong with "Stand Your Ground" laws. Guess what? Conservatives are taking a 54th crack at developing their own Move On.

We've got a few stories to follow up on these days, so maybe it's time to check back in on them.

I mean, it's not as if there's an entire industry dedicated to presenting new and interesting stories every morning for our discussion, right?

Because that'd be crazy! Can you imagine such a job? Wow! How tough would that be? I'd much rather just babble for two hours.

No, really! I would. I'll prove it!

We kicked off with a recap of the Pinterest fiasco. Greg Dworkin walked us through his always-excellent Abbreviated Pundit Roundup, including Hillary news, the 2016 field, David Brooks being terrible in his dead-ender defense of the tired "mistake" trope, Luis Lang quits the Gop, and KY-GOV results. Biker menace spreads to NH Applebee's! Twin Peaks HQ is shocked at the clientele attracted by its rogue franchise! Joan McCarter joins in mulling recent events, including the looming deadlines on NSA reform, and the bin Laden "treasure trove" that has appeared all of a sudden. We also take the opportunity to let her vent on the "bad intel" dodge. The latest TPP-related shell game: paying for "trade adjustment assistance" out of Medicare money. Idaho saves children & defeats Sharia!

Bristol Palin calls off her wedding! Also, some other stuff happened. A 15-year-old Montana boy shot & killed by a friend. Ted Nugent, though, figures he must be a punk, thug or street rat. We revisit the story of Luis Lang, Obamacare protester who blames everyone else for everything. Staying in the Carolinas for a moment, we share this Charlotte Observer editor's thoughts on why he's such a disgusting liberal poopy-head. In the wake of Jeb's Iraq flub, Krugman hits the highlights of the many problems with simply excusing the war as a "mistake," as well as the media's difficulty coping with policy dishonesty at any level. Especially when taken to the extreme, as with the torture question.

As usual, tons of good material to draw from. Only reality can intercede!

And it will have a hard time doing so, since we'll be without Greg Dworkin this morning, even though he totally said he'd be here today. You all heard him say it!

Five billion Pinocchios!

Three gangs face off in a shootout that leaves 9 dead, 18 wounded. But the police response seems... a little different than you might have expected. Greg Dworkin rounds up morning news with the aid of NBC's First Read: Congress stalls on ISIS war authorization; Jeb shocks all in opposing marriage equality, supporting VA reform; Hillary tacks "left," by which they mean "center"; continuing Jeb gaffe fallout, with which Rubio in particular seems to struggle; Walkermentum not happening; Greg's "why does Jeb want to run?" theory catches on, and; your mandatory "Dems in disarray" entry. A Tennessee wacko (and former fringe Congressional candidate) is arrested while hatching plans for a massacre in a NY community of Muslims. Ted Nugent says kids' GunFAIL is all a "big lie," then five sets of siblings proceed to accidentally shoot one another. US raid takes out ISIS "oil minister." And did you know ISIS has a 5-star hotel?

It's Monday again. Back to the grind!

No sooner have you wrapped up a biker weekend gun battle than it's once again "time to make the donuts."

White-on-white crime shocker leads off the broadcast. Greg Dworkin updates us on a GunFAIL story from way back, and notes the passing of B.B.

Will he inherit the scrutiny? Armando joins in expressing his disbelief at Jeb's flub, nearly has a car accident around the 51st minute of the show, then handicaps the GOP field while I take a walk around the block and go see a movie. The Stephanopolous outrage. Then, as promised, David Dayen's "10 biggest lies" about TPP and the ACLU on cops playing to the cameras. Finally, Gimmetarianism defined: the jerky anti-Obamacare jerk who acted like a jerk and then got in over his head and said more jerky stuff.

Well, it's Friday, so anything goes. But I'm reminded that I made the mistake of promising certain stories would be given consideration today. So why not come by and see what a liar I am?

Let's see. There was TPP, police body cams, some more reporting in the bin Laden/Hersh orbit, and the story of some jerky guy who hated Obamacare and then got sick and ran out of money, and blamed Obamacare for it.

Hmm. I might have just ruined that last one. Well, we'll tell that story, and add some jokes. How about that?

Come on by! It's Friday! Almost time to pretend you have adequate time off to recover from your work week coming to you! Celebrate!
