Emily, John and David dig into SCOTUS’s failure to enforce the Voting Rights Act, the GOP’s embrace of January 6th rioters, and protests in Canada.
Here are some notes and references from this week’s show:
John Dickerson for The Atlantic: “The GOP Has No Standards Now”
Adela Suliman for The Washington Post: “Marjorie Taylor Greene says Nancy Pelosi leads ‘gazpacho police,’ causing collective spit take”
Brett Samuels for The Hill: “Pence breaks with Trump: ‘I had no right to overturn the election’”
Here’s this week’s chatter:
Emily: Sam Levine for The Guardian: “The Black Woman Sentenced To Six Years In Prison Over A Voting Error”
John: “John Grisham Reads Soggy Sweat’s Whiskey Speech”
David: Oliver Holmes for The Guardian: “Putin’s Massive Table: Powerplay or Paranoia?”
Listener chatter from Cason Reily: BBC: “Who Is Sue Gray?”
For this week’s Slate Plus bonus segment Emily, John, and David ponder what makes something qualify as a sport or a game.
