Hot dog! This episode is a real wiener! Cody Johnston (@drmistercody, Cracked) joins us to discuss those clowns in congress! What a bunch of clowns! We also passingly discuss the John Swartzwelder masterpiece "Bart Gets An Elephant." We get stampy about the gentlemanliness of Mr. Burns, how any news is unprecedented when your show has been running for 26 years, and the show's subtle yet effective sound design.
