Special Days are back, and there’s an international aspect today. Then, we talk about passing healthcare reform through reconciliation, and that means talking about Republican hypocrisy Arthur names names, calling out the liars. Then we talk about America’s new McCarthy, Liz Cheney. We then talk a bit about John McCain’s re-election troubles, which leads to a larger discussion of the fringe taking over the Republican mainstream. Arthur says the 24-hour drumbeat on the right can’t end well, and we talk about that and some of the reasons things are as they are. Even the mainstream newsmedia isn’t immune from our gaze.
Comments let us talk a bit about snow, cognitive dissonance, the Canadian “dictatorship” and teabaggers—we have great listeners! As a matter of fact, almost half this episode is a discussion of a comment—which is the whole point in having comments, to foster a conversation. Keep those comments coming!
