The Republican War on Women. The Plunderbund Podcast is joined this week by Jaime Miracle, Deputy Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio. 

We discuss restrictions on abortion rights, the recent Supreme Court arguments on the Texas law that seeks to close down abortion clinics by imposing onerous regulations, and whether someone can be both pro-choice and a feminist.

Plus , we ask: Who should play John Kasich, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump in a movie version of the 2016 Presidential Race? And, should Ohio enact a new law to prohibit Troy McClure from “going to Seaworld?”

Let us know your thoughts and ideas on Twitter.

Last summer, John Kasich tried to be everything to everyone in terms of musical tastes. He told The Hill, “I like Linkin Park. I like U2. I like a lot of different bands. I like some stuff that Justin Timberlake does.” Remembering that he was in a GOP Primary, Kashch remembered to pander, adding, “I’ve found on the road that I have been able to listen to some beautiful, soothing Christian music, which I really hadn’t done before. I find it to be really good.”


In February, Kasich told CNN of another musical goal, bringing back Pink Floyd. He said, “And if I’m president, I am going to once and for all try to reunite Pink Floyd.”


Last fall a musician named “Jumpin” Joe Matsko, 81 wrote a song for the Kasich campaign. The song is called Man of the Hour and it sings the praises of Ohio, the Buckeyes football team, and John Kasich.


We reveal a shocking truth: Jumpin’ Joe plagiarized the Kasich song from a song he wrote about Mitt Romney for the last election.
