We’re back! After a slow start (hey—we’ve been away awhile!), we get on to the politics: The debt ceiling, what every liberal should know (or not…). We also talk about “Gun Appreciation Day” and similar rightwing weirdness, the crackpot who said the Connecticut school shootings were a hoax, and the White House’s response to a petition that was out of this world. And more stuff.
Please leave a comment (anyone’s welcome—agree or disagree!), or you can ring the 2Political Comment line on 206-350-3982.
