The day after the NH Primary and a big win for Bernie Sanders, so even though I’m tearing down my studio to rebuild it for the new computer, I jumped in for a bit of a victory celebration today, including Bernie’s entire speech from last night, and three of my interviews with Sen. Sanders from 2010, 2014 and 2015…

Today, New Hampshire heads to the polls as the first in the nation primary day has arrived. Nicole checks in with Huffington Post's Zach Carter as the voting begins. Then two volunteers who Feel the Bern explain what they've been doing to help. In hour two, The Gliberal Goddesses reconvene - Amy Simon, GottaLaff & Nicole - and Amy isn't happy about Nicole designating Gloria Steinem as yesterday's "world's biggest asshole!"

All eyes are on New Hampshire this week, after a "forum" last night, and the first one on one debate tonight between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. But first, DC is participating in an anachronism this morning. Harvey J. Kaye guests to talk about the horse race, and Howie Klein tells us about the latest outrage concerning the senator-wannabe Patrick Murphy & his hypocrisy

Today, Nicole talks about the campaigns with media trainer/strategist Joel Silberman; FOIA Master Jason Leopold of Vice News explains what's really going on with Hillary Clinton's emails (he filed the FOIA request responsible for the email release in the first place); and comedian Jimmy Tingle is running for President on the Humor for Humanity ticket, and joins us from New Hampshire.
Image, Wonkette. It was difficult to keep our progressive and female mouths shut last week when former centerfold and Senator for Ten Minutes, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, allowed his erstwhile supporters to verbally attack opponent Jean Shaheen at a tailgater style political rally. They yelled "fuck Shaheen" and "fuck her right in the pussy", then labeled her a c*^nt while Brown maintained his pseudo-patrician composure.

Daily Kos ran the sorry tale, posting the incriminating video to [...]

Of course, we know all about those Reagan years, and Ronnie's former National Security Adviser Robert "Bud" McFarlane. What I didn't know - and honestly didn't care about until this morning, is that McFarlane is [...]
