0

All the members of the Defenestrate Media Family were happily skipping around the Salt Lake City Conic Con this last weekend, and, boy, are my arms tired … or something that makes sense. Even though we told a few Con Stories, we got through a lot of important news. Take a click as JM Bell, Forrest Shaw, and Bob Easton thrill the earholes on your head! Jason Williams has a new The Sidetrack, too! You Lucky Ducklings!

198 The LEFT Show – But listen closely…

Yeah, it’s Labor Day, and I’m a big supporter of the men and women of America’s Union families, but, ever since the Utah AFL-CIO started giving money and campaign support to Republicans, I quit celebrating it. Go team, ammirite?

The whole gang is in the studio this week as we get ready for the 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con. Lots of announcements, lots of details, lots of news, and lots of anatomical humor.

[FIXED] 175 The LEFT Show – Fred Phelps is Dead [FIXED]

[The problem with the audio file has been fixed. Please, to enjoy!]

One hundred and seventy five episodes, ladies and gentlemen! The only thing that would have made this better is if Melissa weren’t so concerned with being employed and eating and all that!

So, the 175th episode of The LEFT Show found us in a celebratory mood, and then, like Christmas, Fred Phelps died, and it was time to don our party hats! I really have no hesitation what so ever about crowing when a truly evil person dies – good riddance to bad trash! There is literally nothing I could do, in celebrating the death of Fred Phelps, that could possibly sink to his level.

This is the show, folks! All this, and another round of The LEFT Show presents, The LEFT Show’s GOP Jesus Wanker of the Week!

175 The LEFT Show – Dead, dead, dead!
