7-19-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Plagiarist, War Mongers & Racists

  The first night of the 2016 RNC featured war mongers (Rudy Guiliani, a congressman and the guy who spoke before Joni Ernst), racists (Sheriff David Clark, Guiliani again, and others) and a plagiarist, Melania Trump. Mrs. Trump's speech featured full passages that were lifted directly from Michelle Obama's speech at the 2008 Democratic convention when her husband was the nominee. I don't think Mrs. Trump lifted the lines herself. But I wonder why the media is treating her with kid gloves after she told Matt Lauer that she wrote the speech "myself, with as little help as possible." But [...]

7-18-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Circus Maximus

  As the GOP circus gets underway in Cleveland and the world at large continues its descent into insanity, I've been dealing with my own personal hell. After a heart attack scare last Thursday, I've been on a roller coaster ride - and I HATE roller coasters. The heart scare, which turned out not to be a heart attack at all, was perhaps a blessing in disguise. The x-ray that was to see if my heart was swollen or enlarged instead showed a mass on my left lung. The pulmonologist wanted a PET-CT scan done, but United Healthcare had other ideas. [...]

Onward to Charlotte

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120903_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Onward_to_Charlotte.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   After a painful week watching the Republicans lie their way through a national convention, I'm hoping the Democrats just tell the truth.  It shouldn't be that difficult. After all, most of the Democratic Party platform is good, at least when it comes to women, immigrants, seniors, healthcare needs and more of what today's GOP doesn't seem to care about.  And I don't say that lightly... all one needs to do is read the GOP party platform. (You can find my quickie analysis and links to both full platforms [...]

Dueling Platforms

Last week we shuddered as we read the ideals the Republican Party stands for as they released the official 2012 Republican Party Platform.  Talk about a giant leap backwards...  Courtesy of ThinkProgress, here are some of the standout parts: NO ABORTION IN CASES OF RAPE OR INCEST. The proposal for a “human life amendment”passed without a hitch — and without any exceptions for rape or incest. The committee didn’t stop there; they also adopted language that would ban drugs that end pregnancy after conception, which could potentially include Plan B, the “morning after pill.” SALUTE TO MANDATORY ULTRASOUNDS. The GOP officially praises states’ “informed [...]

They signed off from their last broadcast two weeks ago tomorrow after 25 years together at KLOS.  While my four years as part of the show sounds like a drop in their massive bucket, it was a big part of my professional [...]
