This is the Errington Thompson Show. I interviewed the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald who has been in the news after revealing that the NSA was listening in (or is that databasing?) all of our calls back in 2008. Check it out.
Today’s show is full of extra special goodness. I have Glenn Greenwald as my special guest. We discuss his book, Great American Hypocrites. Interestingly, we talk about Bush, the FISA court and telecompanies helping the government listen in on our conversations. This is a great interview. I also cover President Bush’s attack on Senator Barack Obama, as well as his “sacrifice” of golf for the troops.
It is clear that Senator Joe Lieberman was “all in” with John McCain. I have no idea if Lieberman thought that McCain would offer him the position of Secretary of Defense or something else. I know that it is possible to campaign with McCain without cutting down Obama. He even spoke at the Republican Convention. How can we keep him in a chairmanship?
Think Progress has a position paper entitled Joe Lieberman: The Progressive who lost his way. This is a good and complete read of how Joe Lieberman has fallen from Vice President nominee to campaigning with John McCain.
Check out the video from DailyKos:
