2PP040 – 14 October 2010

After Special Days (including one Arthur has a personal connection to), we have some general light-hearted banter—including some talk about unusual things, like travelling in New Zealand and even museums, of all things.

When we get into the politics, Arthur takes exception with the assertion that the November US election with definitely be a bloodbath for Democrats. He presents his case for why things may go better for Democrats than the pundits say. Jason is more pessimistic.

We talk a bit about “what if” the Republicans win. Boehner is lying when he talks about being “bipartisan”. Republicans hinting at impeaching President Obama are beyond nuts. How likely is it that either Arthur or Jason would vote for a Republican? The Democratic Congressional leadership gets a telling-off. Rightwing Republicans do, too.

    Seems that the “czars” drives them crazy.
