Interview with Markos Moulitsas

About a week and a half ago I had an opportunity to interview Markos Moulitsas, founder of the Daily Kos. Markos has a new book called, American Taliban, How War, Sex, Sin and Power Bind Jihadists and the Radical Right. Although Markos is clearly a progressive, he’s not one to mince words or to shy away from touchy subjects. In my 15-minute interview, we discuss current events, the enthusiasm gap between the Right and the Left and several subjects covered in his book, including the extremism of Rush Limbaugh and several others on the far right.

I must congratulate Markos on this absolutely fabulous book, American Taliban. He takes on James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, John Ashcroft, Oliver North, President Ronald Reagan, Glenn Beck, President George W. Bush and many others. This book is written well and brings back to our attention many of the incidents that we have forgotten over the past 10-15 years.

Enjoy the book. I highly recommend it. Listen to the interview:

Worst in the World

I think that it is very hard sometimes trying to figure out who the worst person in the world could be. Today we have three excellent candidates: William Kristol, Rush Limbaugh and Oliver North.

  • William Kristol had another major factual error in his column.
  • Rush Limbaugh read an essay then went on at length about “errors” in the essay. The essay was written by a 10th grader in 1996.
  • Oliver North was on Fox “News” and had the nerve to talk about Bush’s (McCain’s) appeasement statements. This is the same Oliver North who was part of the Iran-Contra (weapons for hostages) scandal. You know, he had the nerve to say that Bush was right!
