1/23 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & David Cross In Studio

January 23, 2015

Cliff Schecter explains why we should not honor King Abadullah. Cliff wants to know where the President Obama of the SOTU address was the last five years? Where President Obama undercut his own message. The Republicans are committing to fighting voting rights. Expect more fake populist politics from the Republicans. Why the politics of mass inequality are shifting. Republicans agree climate change is real just not caused by humans. Democrat Bob Mendez goes insane on Iran negotiations. The stunning invitation from Republicans to Bibi Netanyahu to address Congress. Also Republicans trying to  hide their disgusting women’s health politics.

Comedian David Cross was in Men In Black and he has a new movie he is working on called HITS. Why Masters of Atlantis is David’s favorite book. What HITS is about. Why David isn’t on Twitter. The limits of quantifying. Why David’s new movie will be released on Bittorrent. Is fame a poison.
