10/25 Matt Taibbi, Diagnosing the One Percent

October 25, 2012

Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi explained President Obama’s latest comments on Wall Street reform, why he may defensive about his record, how Mitt Romney is the embodiment of all that has gonewrong in American capitalism, but Matt loves watching Romney lie because he is such a natural at it, reporting from post Soviet Russia was a great training ground for what is happening in modern America and diagnosing narcissism and paranoia in the one percent.

On the Better Half: Richard Mourdock adds himself to the list of Republican making disgusting comments about rape, Sam explains how the GOP has lost control of its Christian Right Frankenstein and predicts less effort from Democrats to appeal to religious conservative voters and your calls and IMS.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
