I spent the morning following the tweets from protesters in DC who tried to place the extortionists masquerading as health insurers under citizens arrest, and an hour this afternoon (that I’ll never get back) watching two clowns each trying to get something out of the other on Faux News.  I only hope that Eric Massa’s VA healthcare has good mental health coverage, because he’s having a massive meltdown.

But the show started with a conversation with Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty law Center about their new report “Rage on the Right,” issued last week, that that details an explosion in the number of extremist groups in the US in 2009.

Jacki Schechner of Health Care for America Now joined me with a follow-up on today’s march in DC, that saw over 5000 people coming out to protest the big insurance companies at the Ritz Carlton.

And I spent most of the last hour speaking with Karoli, who works with MOMocrats, blogs at drumsnwhistles.com and ushealthcrisis.com, and tweets regularly about health care reform.

As always, thanks for listening to the show. I hope you’ll share it with anyone else who might be interested!
