2PP080 – 15 January 2013

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.

    Jason was right. 900,000 people on the mall, 450,000 if which probably have the flu is a great reason to watch the Inauguration on TV from our condo about a mile up the street from the event .

    Great job on the show and keep em coming. I love listening to both of your thoughts on the political situation in the US.
