January 17, 2014

Political strategist Cliff Schecter explains the nature of President Obama’s proposed NSA reforms, what Obama didn’t say in his NSA address, why Obama always trusts the establishment, will Congress will restore the Voting Rights Act? The Chris Christie scandal keeps growing, all the agencies investigating the Christie Administration and why its hilarious that Bruce Springsteen will never like Chris Christie.

Comedian Judy Cole explains why she hates Chris Christie, why she knows exactly what Chris Christie and his cronies are like, Christie’s homophobia and bullying politics, why Duck Dynasty’s ratings are going down, Jon Hamm is a Sam Seder fan and Judy suggested the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom.

And your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
