Can We Fix It: Politicians Are People Too, Guys

Can We Fix It: Checking in on the Republicans
Those of you who are parents know that when toddlers are quiet, they are probably being incredibly destructive. Well, the Rhode Island Republicans are like our collective toddlers, and when things are quiet, they are probably being…well…weird.

What RI Republicans lack in numbers and efficacy, they make up for in batshittery. Tune in, pour a drink, and never underestimate the power of unabashed crazy.
