When you've got a guest as important as Bear-nie Sanders in the studio, you make sure to ask the hard questions.

Bill Spadea, a conservative, doesn't have much in common with Bear-nie — after all, our furry friend is a Democratic socialist bear. But he respects Bear-nie's outsider approach, coming at politics from a everybruin perspective. It's clear — there's a reason so many young cubs find him appealing.

Still, Bill's not sure a platform of free honey for everyone is sustainable. But it sure would be sweet.

(Big thanks to the folks at Six Flags Great Adventure for introducing us to Bailey "Bear-nie" the Bear!)
