PODCAST: Play in new window


I don’t know about you, but Mitt Romney’s nervous laughter at the most inappropriate moments is truly unsettling.  I can just imagine him meeting with foreign leaders calling him out on a lie, and Mitt’s response is a creepy cackle. I know, perish the thought….

Mittens does lots of other inappropriate things too.  Just take his commencement address yesterday at Liberty “University”.  To quote Rodney Dangerfield, take them, please…  But seriously.  I don’t usually watch Lawrence O’Donnell, but he hit the nail on the head last night concerning Romney’s “Christians rule” speech which included the unbelievable line,” There is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian conscience.” I’m not kidding. Watch for yourself:

Good stuff.  More good stuff today comes via my friend, rapper Jasiri X, who reminds us that June 5 is coming soon. That’s the day Wisconsin goes to the polls to recall Scott Walker.  It’s also a good time to tell the DNC to get off their asses and support the recall effort!


Of course, tongues are a-wagging about the massive $2 billion lost by JP Morgan Chase last week.  As usual, it’s the awesome Elizabeth Warren calling for a return to Glass Steagell (the rule put in place after the Depression to stop these practices, but repealed under Clinton administration), and more regulation.

This morning, in my continuing quest to understand better the insanity of the banksters, I was joined by Bart Naylor, financial policy advocate with Public Citizen‘s Congress Watch division, who told us of their new report on the history of derivative deregulation.  (Remember the importance of history, as the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result.)

And in the second hour, as she does every Tuesday morning, I was joined by The Political Carnival’s GottaLaff. After her latest Blunt video, some of the other stories we talked about….

GOP official: Mitt Romney’s V.P pick will be “a deliberate anti-Palin”… an “incredibly boring white guy.”
