Politics

An original staple of the podcast. This is where I rant and rave about a subject matter that I am equal parts passionate about and disgusted by. Enter at your own risk.

McCain Uses The ’Pull-Out’ Method…

It has become evident that John McCain is pulling out of Michigan, conceding it (and 17 Electoral votes) to Obama so that he can...

Precious, Precious Booty Indeed…

You gotta love Ron Paul. You don’t have to love him for public office specifically (I didn't), but you do have to love him...

Nation Interrupted: A Decade After September 11th

A decade after the September 11th attacks, I reflect on where I was when I heard the news and how our country has changed (for better or for worse) in the ensuing 10 years.

It’s the Economic Stupidity, Stupid…

THE best thing to happen to John McCain was for the three network anchors to leave him in the dust this week while they chase Barack Obama on his global Lollapalooza tour. Were voters forced to actually focus on McCain's response to our spiraling economic crisis at home, the prospect of his ascension to the Oval Office could set off a panic that would make the IndyMac Bank bust in Pasadena look as merry as the Rose Bowl.

The Invisible Hand and the Fairer Sex: Women and Globalization

During the last half of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st, the world has borne witness to a period of rapid industrial growth and production, transnational...

Podcast 377: Texas Toast

Rick Perry enters the Presidential race, further diluting a weak GOP field. I weigh his chances and explain the difference between a "primary candidate" and an "electable general election candidate."

Podcast 390: Brokeredback Mountain

The GOP primaries begin to heat-up, along with President Obama’s misinformed and mistaken healthcare mandate to religious organizations.

Podcast 407: Chronic Masterdebater

The first Presidential Debate has come and gone, and it’s time for a little ‘post-game’ wrap-up relating to the candidates’ performance, whether there will be any change in the polls and some fact-checking.

Podcast 379: Armadillo Anal Probe

In this week’s show, I cover everything from the President’s address to Congress and details relating to the American Jobs Act, to the struggling economy and how our politics are only making it worse.

Podcast 389: State Of The Disunion

As President Obama delivers his 3rd State of the Union address before Congress – his last before the 2012 election – I offer up my thoughts on the over 6-pages of notes I took during the speech.

Podcast 392: Super Size Me

This week I am joined by Patrick, who recently returned from SxSW. We round out the program with the Limbaugh/Fluke controversy and the prolonged Republican primary.

Spill Baby Spill…

I would like to send out a friendly, “Go Fuck Yourself” to anyone who has attempted to marginalize the BP oil spill, simply becomes it has become “inconvenient” or “embarrassing” in juxtaposition to...

Stay Classy, Assholes

Neil Heslin, the father of a 6-year-old boy who was slain in the Sandy Hook massacre, was shouted down (see: heckled) by pro-gun advocates during a hearing before the Gun Violence Prevention Group. My thoughts on gun control.

Why Voting Matters

The privilege of an American citizen to vote is the right that defines our democracy. By exercising this fundamental right, we protect all the other rights of our constitution. Our ability and right to vote is an expression of equality.
