Do you like game shows? Do you like politics? Whatever, you will LOVE The Ciquizza anyway. Each week the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza will put two supposedly smart guests to the test with questions on news, politics, entertainment. The winner will be covered in glory. The loser will be subject to public shaming. For real.
