Yep, it’s another double header today, so not much time for a lengthy post… you’ll just have to listen:)
This afternoon on the Randi Rhodes Show, I’ll speak with the Amazing Kreskin (yes, he’s still alive), Forbes’ token liberal Rick Ungar, and Howie Klein will update us on how the solar panels on his house are working out for him, plus lots more….
On my show this morning, we talk about yesterday’s Forward on Climate rally in DC, strange coincidences, and a lot more. Of course since it’s Monday, Nicole Belle joins in for “Fools on the Hill”. She brought us this today…
Look at John McCain’s bizarre and frankly bratty attack on David Gregory for asking what exactly Benghazi has to do with holding up the Chuck Hagel nomination, interrupting Gregory and asking whether he cared that four Americans died. Would that John McCain feel even the slightest bit worse over the 4,500 Americans that died needlessly in Iraq.
And John McCain’s BFF Lindsey Graham who petulantly demands that we cut health care benefits for millions of Americans so that the sequester cuts won’t destroy the military. Even though the Pentagon itself said that they could handle some cuts.
Then there are the incorrigibles. Those children so uncontrolled, so horrible, so lacking in basic respect that you wonder about the parents. Those people work for Fox (like Tucker Carlson) and are responsible for such heinous stories as suggesting the President Obama is indoctrinating federal workers against white people. Why? Because the USDA (you know, the agency that fired Shirley Sherrod) had to take a racial sensitivity training program.
On the incorrigible side, Karl Rove is defending his campaign to divide and conquer the Republican Party to get rid of ‘stupid candidates’. But it’s Bob Woodward who really thinks Rove’s gone too far subverting democracy. Sad that it’s taken the man who broke the Watergate scandal so long to figure out what we liberals have been saying all along.
And now for some adult conversation. UP with Chris Hayes devoted a whole hour to discussing the ramifications of raising the minimum wage. Unlike every other weekend news show, this discussion had nuance and intelligence. Well, with the exception of token conservative Jennifer Sevilla Korn of the Hispanic Leadership Conference. Sevilla Korn tried to dominate the conversation with conservative talking points and unlike every other weekend show, the host pushed back with facts. Hear that, David Gregory?
**We had a last minute addition in the first hour. Texas farm owner Julia Trigg Crawford is fighting Trans Canada to keep them from running the Keystone XL pipeline under her land via eminent domain. She’ll also join us on the Randi Rhodes Show this afternoon. Here’s her story:***
