TIP #1: If you get a pop filter for your microphone, then your voiceover's plosives will not explode in the viewers' ears. Blue Microphones makes a good one.

TIP #2: If you actually read the Varnum decision through an objective lens and think a little more critically about the independent judiciary's role in American governance, you might see that the seven Iowa Supreme Court justice's unanimous decision in favor of marriage equality was not "against the will of the people," but rather in favor of protecting people from unconstitutional bias. It didn't "make law": It protect everyone's right to live under it. Civilly.

TIP #4: Dead turkeys, while found on the dinner forks of many, may not be the best political visual. Especially when your team is undeniably in the aggressor seat, gunning for the domestic game that you've personally determined does not deserve to fly.
