Subject: Morons!


I have never encountered such insolence and idiocy in my life. This morning, I spoke at a State Department briefing / Clinton Global Initiative fundraising breakfast. I specifically requested three minute soft boiled eggs. You fools provided eggs that were hard as a rock. You will rue the day you crossed me!

Subject: Required Contribution


Regarding your work lining up foreign backers for my next presidential run: I want to be perfectly up-front with my expectations. We are looking at a $1 billion campaign in 2016. Don't waste your time with tiny contributions. Domestic donors at the $1 million level are acceptable, but if I'm going to be doing favors for foreign governments, I simply must require a minimum commitment of $15 million, with at least 10% up-front.

Now get your ass out their and raise some more money.

Almost forgot. Let's expand our monthly reports on dirt on my rivals (Republican and Democrat) to weekly.

It won't be a very Merry Christmas is you don't listen. You know what I am talking about!

- Analysis of the entrance music for Republican Presidential candidates at the recent CPAC conference
- Tryout of some sound effects to be used for future HWX shows during the election season
- Another Earth Day tip from Mike Nelson of
We were also joined by guest named Jesse who’s obsessed with conspiracy theories. And it’s NOT Jesse Ventura. Instead it’s the great Jesse Walker, he’s the books editor at Reason magazine and author of the book, The United States of Paranoia: A Conspiracy Theory. We have a rollicking discussion about the undercurrent of the “paranoid style” throughout American history, the archetypes that conspiracies tend to follow, and why this type of thinking is more of a feature than a bug of human psychology.
