-During a hearing on the appointment of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to Attorney General, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was halted from reading a 1986 letter written by Coretta Scott King that criticized Sessions. The Republican means to shut her down was a previously obscure rule known as Rule 19. Pat, Stu, and Jeff agree that such a rule must be done away with and that the Republicans made a huge mistake in invoking it against Warren.
-Vice President Mike Pence cast the deciding vote to confirm Secretary of Education appointee Betsy DeVos after the Senate was split 50-50. This was the Donald Trump appointee that the Democrats had determined they would oppose, and they are unlikely to deny any of Trump's other appointees.
-Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has introduced a bill to abolish the department of education. In his mind, un-elected bureaucrats should not decide the education options for our children. Is he on to something?
-The guys analyze the history and recent re-birth of the hit television drama ‘24’. What made the show eventually lose its attractiveness to viewers? Just how much money is the network saving with Kiefer Sutherland relegated to his new role as executive producer of the reboot?
-In a CNN report on Barack Obama's vacation at billionaire Richard Branson’s Caribbean island estate; one host took it upon herself to tell us just how "jacked" she thinks the former president is. … Pat and Stu tell you just how “jacked” THEY think Obama is.
-The most tweeted Super Bowl ad was Netflix’s promo for the new season of “Stranger Things.” The guys offer their thoughts on the preview.
