This week’s episode of the Washington Monthly Show on BloggingheadsTV features our own web editor Martin Longman as guest. It was a wide-ranging discussion that included the future of gun policy; the conservative effort to use the GOP leadership election to extort fiscal brinkmanship in December; the extraordinary loathing Ted Cruz has aroused among his Senate colleagues; and Hillary Clinton’s appearance on Saturday Night Live.
