May 19, 2015

Legendary blogger Digby (Heather Parton) explains the Republicans corporate agenda is stifled by democracy. Racist author Charles Murray’s plan to subvert democracy through plutocrat funded lawsuits. The Republicans Scientology strategy and the end of regulation. How the Right can use the federal courts to destroy governments ability to protect the public good. Why the Right’s shamelessness opens the door for a radical anti democratic push. What could the Left do to protect a plutocratic attack on the Courts. Why Fox News viewers are less informed than people who don’t watch any news. Why the Fox News outrage machine won’t allow the Republicans to ever move from the far right. Why the Republicans are probably the most successful minority party in world history. Also why a marginal Republican can win the 2016 nomination.

On The Fun Half: Lindsey Graham is running for President because “the world is falling apart”. The delusional and reprehensible, George Pataki is running for President and we member the time that Sam owned him on TV. Random Rush. Did Bill O’Reilly beat his wife? And your calls and IMs.
