    Segment Notes: This week on CounterSpin: Bipartisanship and free trade are two of corporate media's favorite things, so when the Washington Post editorial expressed the post-midterm media consensus, "Now that Republicans have gained control of Congress, no policy area is riper for bipartisan action than trade," you can believe they were happy to do it.

    Bless You Boys Podcast 92: Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos

    in Sports

    Kurt and Al cover the past week of Detroit Tigers baseball, including the hiring of new manager Brad Aumus, Max Scherzer trade rumors, the possibility of a payroll crunch, free agency and the made-for-TV waste of time known as MLB awards season.  


    Meet Brad Ausmus, managerial flavor of the month!
    It's far, far to early to make any kind of judgment, good, bad or indifferent, about the hiring if Ausmus.
    Gene Lamont and Jeff Jones return. Tom Brookens won't.
    Goodbye Lloyd McClendon.
    Just because there's rumors the Tigers will trade Max Scherzer doesn't mean it's likely to happen. It's improbable, at best,
    Is there a payroll crunch?
    This is Omar Infante's one shot at a huge contract.
    The few Tigers free agency rumors involve closers, the first of which was about Grant Balfour. Expect the Tigers to be linked to any and every closer on the market.
    Awards season is here and we don't give a damn.
    The SB Nation MLB Awards were determined by nerds. Don't blame me, I voted for Cabrera!

    This week Big Al and Eno have a truncated episiode due to Greg's power going out!  We also welcome back Bleacher Report's Adam Biggers for Adam Rants. Adam covers the latest with Michigan and Michigan State football.

    Spring 2013 Election Recap

    in Politics

    Join Eric Bussell and Angie Patton as they recap the 2013 Spring Election in Champaign County.  Eric brings a conservative point of view while Angie counters with liberal perspective.  You will not find this type of informed and entertaining local #chambana coverage anywhere. 
    In this episode, Eric and Angie discuss Lynn Stuckey's suprise election victory in the Champaign School Board race.  As you might now, Lynn Stuckey is famous for breastfeeding here 8 year old son and was even featured on Good Morning America.  (http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-201_162-530620.html)
    Eric shamelessly plugs the Hensley Revolution of 2012 as Hensely Township elected to replace the Township Board with a woman majority after a contention zoning process that ultimately ended with the County Board approval of Pear Tree Estates (http://peartreeestate.com/) in rurual Hensley Township, just north of Champaign.
    We also talk about the impressive Andy Quarntrom victory over Pam Borowski.  Eric discusses his frustration with the lack of enthusiasm for Pam and why people should be paying attention...while Angie gives some great perspective (as always) on Andy's efforts.  Both Pam and Andy were guests on our show in the weeks leading up to the election. 
    We also discuss Will Kyle's 64 vote victory over Gina Jackson and the circus surrounding that election.  Is there a Boogeyman lurking in District 1? 
    Also, Angie goes on the record as threatening to kill Eric on election night.  Although things can get intense during election time between these two, no orders of protection were necessary.  Instead, for his own safety, Eric will be calling Gordy Hulten to address the AC probem at Brookens.
