Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We have a standing date on the show every Thursday with Howie Klein. He writes at DownWithTyranny. com, and runs the Blue America PAC, finding and raising money for the best progressive candidates. One of his Blue America-endorsed candidates, Nina Turner, was defeated in a special primary to fill the congressional seat vacated by Marcia Fudge. She joined the administration as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The problem is, Nina Turner was targeted by the Democratic party establishment with a big assist [...]
It's Thursday, which means that Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins Nicole to talk politics. Today they discuss Tuesday's first big primary day of the '18 midterms plus how racism was just codified by the House. Nicole also welcomes David Pepper, chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party to talk about the anti-gerrymandering ballot measure that actually passed in Tuesday's election.
This professional grade revisioning is so cringeworthy it could hurt, fair warning. Regressives are just having a banging week. [Two take the urinal cake.] Mister Pittenger takes his cake for running a Fifties filter on life … until you run into a Trumpette that believes we are post-post-racial/sexist. […]
Today is the day your 2015 income taxes are due. It's a good day to compare and contrast the candidates to see how your dollars would be spent in their respective administrations. Today, Joel Silberman returns as he votes in NY tomorrow. And Cliff Schecter sets the record straight on John Kasich, the governor of his home state, and I coin a new term, Kasichsplaining
Today is primary day in Michigan & Mississippi for all, plus Hawaii & Idaho for the GOP. It's also International Women's Day. We'll talk all that and more today. Guests are PG Sittenfeld, candidate for US Senate from Ohio, and the Gliberal Goddesses - @GottaLaff, Amy Simon and Nicole gather again.

Yesterday, I wrote about the GOP's "rebranding" effort following their "autopsy" in the wake of the 2012 elections. Let it be known that they're doing the exact opposite of everything recommended in that report. Just today, in his Plum Line blog at the Washington Post, Greg Sargent marveled at the backwards nature of today's Republican Party in "GOP opposition to gay workplace equality will do wonders for that 'makeover'" - a piece about the fact that ENDA (The Employment Non-Discrimination Act) today passed out of the Senate Health and Education Committee with votes from three Republicans (Kirk, Murkowski and Hatch), [...]
I never thought I'd quote Glenn Beck, but there's a first time for everything. The moron of mid-morning radio (and now the interwebs too) actually said something I can agree with. Well, OK, it was only a fraction of the entire quote in which he ragged on Sen. Marco Rubio for supporting immigration reform and accused him of being a (gasp!) progressive Republican. As a Floridian, I can promise you that there is nothing progressive about Mr. Rubio. Anyway, Glenny said "Get away! Get away! Otherwise, brother, we’re going to have to send you away.” The rest of it was [...]
I don't know when or where this picture was taken - but it was obviously a few years ago, and is obviously Herman (Koch) Cain standing right next to Sharon Bialek. Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive .... I opened the show this morning with some of Koch-Cain's more obvious lies and sickening statements... Then we moved on to some good news. After hearing today's 90 Second Summary from Main Street Insider I spoke with Jeremy Koulish about yesterday's election results -- it turned out to be a pretty good day [...]
