Travis Cook, the Q resident Tea Party expert and extremist, joins the show to discuss the State of the Union. Ofcourse, Travis can't hold back and once again this leads to an egregious claim and extreme viewpoint shared by almost no one. But then again that is why they call him America's EVIL Genius....or maybe in this case just Evil.

On this Pre-Xmas episode of the show the guys have a lot on their plate.
