A downed phone line prevented Dennis Spisak from calling in, so tomorrow evening is going to be the interview that should have taken place on Saturday. Having been there before, all I can say is, “Yikes!”
Anyway, here’s the info for tomorrow night’s show.

There's this myth going around. It seems many people think the extension of Bush-era tax cuts on the first 250k in income per family exclude wealthy families. They do not. While policy makers are debating letting the Bush-era tax cuts exclusively targeting those with family incomes above 250k, these families would not be excluded from the Democratic proposal to extend these other tax cuts. Indeed, in dollar terms, the wealthy fair better under the so-called middle-class tax cuts, than the middle-class.

It used to be so much fun to bash the rightwing crazies like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Michelle Bachmann and Ron Paul. I used to love it when Keith Olbermann would fulminate in righteous rage over the latest horrors coming from "Mr. Bush." I used to laugh my butt off when Rachel Maddow would make fun of wingnuts, and when Al Franken would play "Bill O'Reilly: Lying or Stupid?"
But now, when I hear the latest outrage over Rand Paul or Sarah Palin or the Tea Party or some other alleged threat to the very fabric of our country, I just feel uncomfortable and slightly queasy. Why? Why don't I care anymore? Read below the fold...

Now, as a good ol’-fashioned Southern girl, I always try to give credit where credit is due…and I’ve always been fair about givin’ credit to the Right for their amazing ability to make people vote against their own best interests. Despite all the Right’s talent, I was still amazed that they managed to motivate (translate: terrify) people into protesting an issue that doesn’t even exist. Now that’s somethin’!
Today, hundreds of pro-gun folks swarmed Washington to protest the non-existent Obama plot to repeal the Second Amendment. Un-Fuckin’-Believable! Read below the fold...

Since I last asked this question, the "Democrats" (and I use that term loosely) have passed a Health Whatever Bill which was not only based on the conservative Heritage Foundation's plan from 1994, but also included an Executive Order which severely restricted women's access to reproductive care. "Pro-choice" Democrats voted for it; "liberal" Democrats voted for it; "I promise you a Public Option Sparkle Pony!" Democrats voted for it. Ah, our "post-partisan" Paradise, where every politician, regardless of the letter after his/her name, is working for the top 2%! Read below the fold...

Obama supports a shitty health-care bill, as well as offshore oil drilling. Fantastic.
The RNC has enough scandals to be a reality television show. Baby.
And the first third party movement in my memory to be given considerable media attention wears fucking tea bags on their heads. Well, Yee-freakin’-Ha!
Is it possible that with all the media coverage focused on the angry rhetoric of a few, that the leaders in both parties have left the majority of us full of “political apathy”?
Too often lately I’ve heard “What difference does it make who you vote for, they’re all just politicians.” Or better yet, too often lately have the people making such comments had valid points?

“The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic. [...] The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has a right to prevent.” Read below the fold...

Yesterday I, two bloggers from Correntewire (Gmanedit and LibbyLiberal) and a woman who had heard about the protest from the PNHP meeting Libby and I had attended, stood on a chilly street in New York City and talked about half-healthcare for women, the deficiencies of the Health Whatever Bill, and the superiority of single-payer (universal) health care.

At what point do progressives stop being Democrats' whipped dogs and start acting like a movement capable of putting the Dems in their proper place as the party of the people? David Sirota wrote today about Obama's latest call to increase war spending beyond its already ludicrous proportions. Read below the fold...
