Ops. I have gotten behind in posting my show. Here’s the podcast.
We have never been about staying the course. We are for changing language without really changing anything. Tony Snow only found eight times where the President said “stay the course.” Olbermann found 29 repetitions of “stay[ing] the course.” Google remains a tool that the White House can’t figure out how to use. (He even hears “stay the course” in Spanish.) 94 deaths in Iraq so far this month beg the question why did we go to Iraq?
My guests. I feel very lucky that I have had some great guests. I’m happy to say that I’m continuing the tradition. Bill Scher, the founder and editor of Liberal Oasis, is in the HOUSE. We discuss his new book – Wait! Don’t Move to Canada. Great book. He doesn’t just point out some of the problems in the US. He also puts forth a plan to take back the discussion and the government.
My second guest is really a hero of mine. I have heard him on the Diane Rhem Show tons of times. He doesn’t back down in the face of neo-con noise. He is very detail-oriented. I cited his previous book many times in my own book, A Letter to America. He is the Washington editor of The Nation, David Corn. His new book, Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal and the Selling of the Iraq War, is written with Michael Isikoff. On the show, we discuss a few of the reasons that the Bush Administration told us that we needed to invade Iraq. This is one of the best books that I have read in the last couple of years. If you don’t have it, I highly recommend it.
Remember I’m on iTunes and several other podcasting sites.
