The passage of the healthcare reform bill starts us off today, and we then move on to the politics that swirled around Washington, DC that weekend. The teabaggers are a topic. That movement was co-opted by corporate elites, turning it into a mostly aggressive fascist movement. So, what do we call the original Tea Party folks, the ones who aren’t crazy? Republicans don’t get off lightly this episode, either, especially the “Tenthers” and other extremists. Comments let us talk a bit about more, including that infamous recent Supreme Court decision. Arthur screwed up the end of the podcast, but fixed it (mostly) in editing. That’s why there’s so much giggling.
