What the… Did the U.S. government really approve the sale of powdered alcohol?
Glenn opened this morning’s radio program with a weird story that just got even weirder. On Saturday, The Telegraph reported the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) approved the sale of seven versions of ‘Palcohol’ – a powdered alcohol that claims to be equal to a standard mixed drink when five ounces of liquid is added to it. But by Monday, the federal bureau was singing a different tune – saying the “approvals were issued in error.” Get the full story and Glenn’s hysterical reaction HERE.

‘You want a revolution?’ Glenn explains why your most powerful weapon is your right to vote
