11/22 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Jimmy Dore

November 22, 2013

Political strategist Cliff Schecter explains the importance of Democrats exercising the nuclear option, the Republicans extreme obstruction, how Republicans are subverting democracy, why Republicans would eliminate the filibuster if they ever came back to power, does the nuclear option hurt Chris Christie? And JFK’s relationship with the National Security State.

Comedian Jimmy Dore talks about why he loves Diane Raritch so much, predicts the Democrats will cave on filling all judicial appointments even after the nuclear option, why does John Boehner want to be speaker of the House? And Jimmy suggested Killing Me Softly.

Rush Limbaugh victim of an incredible prank call, a sociopathic Democratic State Rep in Hawaii smashes homeless peoples shopping carts and local news gives positive coverage and students at an Iowa High School bully a kid with aspergers and the community supports the bullies and North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory says he isn’t doing voter suppression he has “just compacted” the early voting schedule.

And your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
