4-10-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Flashback Friday Radio

Nicole covers the day's news and info, then looks back. For some reason, John Melendez (Stuttering John from the Howard Stern Show) joins in, and Nicole turns the tables and asks him pointed questions. We segue into the weekend with an amazing 1996 radio appearance at KSCA from the Brian Setzer Orchestra

Dick Advises House GOP on Foreign Policy

When the House Republicans needed foreign policy advice, they turned to the man most responsible for getting us into this mess in the first place.  Cheney was the war's chief propagandist, who told the American public more spectacular falsehoods than anyone, including Bush himself. Cheney was the one who told us in 2002 that "Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us." He's the one who tried to convince us that Saddam Hussein might have helped engineer the [...]

#RANpaul, #WarOnWhites & More GOP Insanity

  I don't know which on is more offensive - Congressman Steve King's comments to the DREAMers who dared question him about his desire to deport them, or Senator Rand (Ran) Paul's dine and dash upon hearing them identify themselves as DREAMers! I began the show with the whole video, embedded below for your convenience, and remind you why DREAM Action Coalition co-director Erika Andiola and fellow DREAMer Cesar Vargas wanted to talk with him in the first place. You'll remember that, in a Newsmax interview in July of 2013, Steve King likened DREAMers to drug smugglers with calves the size of [...]

Gliberal Goddesses

Today, we inaugurated a new segment on the show - The Gliberal Goddesses! It's GottaLaff, Amy Simon and myself talking about things that women talk about, the way women talk about them. Today we discussed the Ray Rice domestic violence case and the NFL's sad response to it. So great to hear from Keith Olbermann again! While I agree with him, I also agree with Whoopi Goldberg We also discussed some Pat Robertson insanity (nothing new there), and the most outrageous comment of the day, this time from Geraldo Rivera... I don't think we'll have trouble filling this segment in [...]

Religion and Politics

The graphic above says it all... Religion is like a penis. It's fine to have one. It's fine to be proud of it. But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around. And PLEASE don't try to shove it down my children's throats. It seems that the people who don't follow that golden rule are also the ones who have absolutely no understanding of what Jesus (who they claim to follow) actually taught. Today, we talked about religious hypocrisy with comedian John Fugelsang, who agreed with me that people like Pat Robertson, Bryan Fischer, Ralph Reed [...]

Mayday Mayday!

It's the first day of May and, yes, we do need help.  The inmates seem to be running the asylum.  People like Michele Bachmann have got to go, so that's why I spoke with Jim Graves this morning. Jim Graves jumped into the race late in 2012, and came thisclose to sending Michele home to Marcus.  This time, he's in early, and stands a really good chance of making Congressman Bachmann history. I was so impressed with every answer he gave to every question I asked! I hope you'll take the time to listen to our conversation.  In the meantime, [...]

Congress, Guns & Money

  Another day, another mass shooting... in Aurora, CO! When will the madness end?  Never, if the GOP gets its way. The chart above shows some common sense regulations that could be put in place immediately - and I think even the majority of NRA members would agree that these are practical ideas. Ten bills pertaining to guns were introducedin the House on the first day of the 113th Congressional session, eight of them by from Democrats seeking new restrictions on gun ownership. Dianne Feinstein is expected to introduce legislation in the Senate this week.   And Joe Biden's White House [...]

A Heartbreaking Week Comes To An End

I'm certainly glad it's Friday. This has been an incredibly difficult week. Although Monday was just another day, the world changed on Tuesday afternoon at 4:53pm ET.  It's impossible to avoid the heartbreaking stories and images coming from Haiti, where the death toll today is estimated at somewhere around 150,000 people. Schools, hospitals, homes and most of the other buildings in and around the capital city of Port Au Prince collapsed under a massive earthquake that registered 7.0 on the Richter scale. As the days pass, the chances of survivors being pulled from the wreckage lessens. And we watch, helplessly, [...]

Where’s The Compassion?

For some time now, I've bemoaned the lack of compassion in today's world.  But we're not all lacking in that area.  It seems that the most compassion-deficient in the US today are of the Republican persuasion. If we didn't already know that Rush Limbaugh was a drug-addled, sexist, over-paid windbag, that conclusion would have been a no-brainer to anyone who heard some of his comments today: Limbaugh claimed that President Obama was somehow happy about the catastrophic loss of life and property in Haiti because he'd be able to use our response to boost his credibility with the "light-skinned and [...]
