FARGO — Bismarck, N.D., humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson joins podcast host Mike McFeely to chat about Republicans' obsession with silly topics like Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head being "cancelled" by the left (they haven't, even if it mattered).

As usual Clay is more forgiving than Mike, who believes the right wasting time on inanity like "cancel culture" is purposeful distraction from the fact Republicans don't have any policy points and the ones they do are unpopular.
