Caucus Casualty

The Iowa caucuses are history.  We could call it much ado about nothing, as it really doesn't mean anything at all.  Except to Michelle Bachmann to called it quits today after her last place finish yesterday. It is truly a loss for comedians everywhere.  But honestly, I'm just thrilled I don't have to hear her call it the Unined States any more.  We did however learn that President Obama is a socialist and, left to his devices, America would become a Socialist country, and "obamacare" will destroy American society and life as we know it. We also learned to pronouce [...]

The Caucus, The Guns and The News

Welcome to the first election day of 2012. Except it's not really an election, it's a caucus - held in Iowa - and it doesn't mean a damned thing. The Caucus:  My friend Kenneth Quinnell of the Florida Progressive Coalition wrote a great piece for Crooks & Liars - Iowa Caucus Preview - and he joined me to talk about it.  We also discussed some Florida issues - including next Tuesday's of the legislative session and the Awake the State rallies planned statewide that day.  Find the one closest to you and attend.  (I'll be speaking at the one in [...]

Another One Bites The Dust

Actually, I was planning to use that headline to wrap up my broadcast week... but I guess it also applies to the latest dictator to die.  I'm not sure at whose hands he died, but Gadaffy (or however it is spelled) is dead. It's quite interesting that there's video of the fallen madman after he was captured, bloodied but still obviously very much alive.  Will we ever know exactly what happened? Probably not.  Should we care?  Not really. After all... we've got troubles right here in River City my friend. ... with a capital T that rhymes with [...]

Showdown!

                I'm finallygetting around to posting Thursday's show on Friday morning.  It was a busy week, as I was honored to guest host the Randi Rhodes Show for the past three days, in addition to doing my own regular show here at Radio or Not. The one good thing about waiting until this mornings is that I get to include President Obama's Jobs speech in the "Showdown" wrap-up. As you'll hear by clicking on the link above (or downloading the podcast via iTunes, Stitcher or any of the various other ways of listening [...]

Beware the Zealots!

Religious zealots will be the death of society.  I truly believe that, even more so after my conversation this morning with Rachel Tabachnick.  Rachel has long been researching and writing about the impact of the Religious Right on politics and, of late, has turned much of her attention toward the New Apostolic Reformation.  Much of her past work is found at Talk2Action.org, and she has recently begun amassing info about NAR at NARwatch.org. As she often writes about religious extremists and their impact on politics, I was happy to see that she has a piece in the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz about [...]

Oh God!

"Oh God" is a multi-use term, much like the word "fuck" serves multiple purposes.  And although I'm an atheist, I use the "Oh God" expression fairly frequently. "Oh God" was my reaction when I first heard this clip from Michele Bachmann explaining how God told her to marry Marcus Bachmann (even though they weren't in love or anything), and then went to law school and for her post-doctorate in tax law (even though she hates taxes) because her husband told her to, and the Bible says women must be submissive to their men! Of course, that's how she really feels. [...]
