Today, we heard two sides from the left. From the Democratic party, chair of the DNC – Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz joined in to talk about President Obama’s visit to Florida (tomorrow and Friday – info & ticket sign-up can be found here!).

Debbie and I have been been speaking on the radio for a number of years now, and I’ve always challenged her with the tough questions. Today was no different.  I asked about a few things on my mind, including why the Democratic party uses contributor dollars to support Blue Dogs and other “Dems” who vote with the Republican Party the majority of the time; why the DNC was largely absent for Wisconsin’s Scott Walker recall, and more…  

From the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party, Down With Tyranny/Blue America PAC‘s Howie Klein gave the rebuttal to Debbie’s answers…

At the end, Howie broke some real news that I think we’ll all be hearing a lot more about in the coming weeks and months.  According to Klein, Congressman Buck McKeon (R-CA25) has a serious gambling problem, and owes lots and lots of money to Sheldon Adelson’s casinos in China!  Oh what a tangled web…. 

If this story turns out to be true (and I have no reason to doubt it), California 25 will be represented in Congress by the tres awesome Dr. Lee Rogers!

I’ll be out tomorrow…. but Jacob Dean of Filter Free Radio will fill in for me.  And I’ll be in for Randi Rhodes again on Friday!  Talk to you then!
