2/27 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Film Guy Matthew Weiss

February 27, 2015

Cliff Schecter mourns the loss of Leonard Nimoy and reflects on the cultural importance of Star Trek. The Department of Homeland Security funding bill and the ongoing Republican fail on immigration. Was winning bad for the Republicans? Why President Obama is paying no price for being progressive. Why the crazy right wing media will never stop and why Bill O’Reilly’s fans will never care that he is a serial liar. O’Reilly’s LA Riots lie. Also Scott Walker compares fighting public sector unions to taking on ISIS.

Film Guy Matthew Weiss is choked up by the loss of Leonard Nimoy. Sam reflects on doing Marc Maron’s TV show. Sam and Matt lament Marc’s psychological growth. Matthew tells us to watch the new film Wild Canaries. Also is Matthew’s movie pick suspect?

On The Fun Half: Pat Robertson goes haywire on Net Neutrality and the “socialist takeover”. Random CPAC. The “Duck Dynasty” guy talks about “loving you” at CPAC. Fast Track Trade Authority is bad for America and the world. Also your IMs.
