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:
