“Whoever thought that conservatives were really utopians?” #GOPdelusion

Image via Brainpickings.org Who remembers the 2012 tea party debate at which Ron Paul was asked by Wolf Blitzer: “Congressman, are you saying that society should just let [an uninsured 30-year-old man in coma] die?” (some audience members shouted “Yeah!”). Paul's reply?  “We’ve given up on this whole concept that we might take care of ourselves or assume responsibility for ourselves. Our neighbors, our friends, our churches would do it." Delusional much? I can't even get my neighbor to stop her dog from peeing on my grass, let alone convince her to give me a helping hand should I ever fall [...]

Everything is Broken

When three people, including 8-year old Martin Richards-pictured above, are killed and upwards of 180 injured at a public sporting event, something is broken. When an injured marathon spectator is considered a "suspect" in the bombing because he's a  Saudi national, something is broken. When Rupert Murdoch's propaganda outlets can spread hate and lies and call them "news", something is broken. When public figures tweet out "Kill the Muslims", something is broken. When American Airlines returns a plane to the gate at Logan because two passengers are speaking Arabic, something is broken. When poison laced envelopes are sent to members [...]

Global Whack-A-Mole

The always funny Ralphie May joined me on the show this morning.  I'd been a fan since I first saw him on Last Comic Standing, and learned he was on my side of the political aisle after seeing him down here at the Improv last year (and watched all the right wingers squirm while he told them the truth!). This morning, he was on a roll, going off on each of the GOP presidential hopefuls.  When I asked him what he thought of President Obama's performance, he admitted to being a big fan.  He praised the president's prowess for going [...]

Welcome To A Brand New Year

This morning we began yet another new year of shows in which we examine what's happening and try to figure it all out. Today, I was joined by Howie Klein of Down With Tyranny and the Blue America PAC.  We talked about his trip to the Yucutan and his visits with the Mayan people who told him that it's only the calendar that ends in December, not the world! We also discussed the DCCC, the NDAA  (and my questions to Debbie Wasserman Schultz about it on the Randi Rhodes Show on Friday), and the upcoming elections and the need to [...]

Awesomeness and Laffs

How do you do a radio show when you're feeling flu-ish? Invite the Awesome Bob Cesca and Gotta Laff to be your guests!  OK, Laffy was already scheduled (she's on with me every Tuesday morning), but Bob Cesca is certainly coming to the rescue. For readers not in the know, Bob Cesca's Awesome Blog! Go! is here, and you also read him on Huffington Post.  He's no stranger to radio either; he and Elvis Dingeldein host a weekly podcast too.  We'll talk about whatever comes up, though I'm sure we'll hit on the fact that Richard Shelby is blocking the [...]
