In Episode 21 of Capitol Fight Club, John Gray, Brian Darling, Sam Sacks and Sam Knight battled over whether Hillary fumbled away the election with her “basket of deplorables” comment, Snowden’s viability for an Obama pardon and whether blocking oil pipelines will save the planet from fossil fuels.
Capitol Fight Club is a weekly face-off between two political insiders on the right versus two on the left. Darling and Gray (editor of The Ideas Factory) worked for Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and both write for Conservative Review. Our progressive friends, “The Sams,” Sam Sacks and Sam Knight, are the co-founders of the progressive blog The District Sentinel. Nate Madden of @CR is the ref and the moderator of the podcast.
