Interesting, but scary stuff!

The interview I was most looking forward to this week happened today. One of my must-reads every day is Glenn Greenwald's column at Although all of his columns are worth reading and talking about, I was most interested in talking with him about the piece he wrote on Monday, An emerging progressive consensus on Obama's executive power and secrecy abuses.

You can read my thoughts about how it's possible to like a president, but disagree vehemently with some of his policies. And I do!

Today's show wasn't all doom and gloom... We had a little fun too, with Lisa Derrick, who blogs at FireDogLake. We talked about Phil Spector who was convicted yesterday of 2nd degree murder, and dished on lots other stories too. She was getting ready to dress up and go incognito to one of the tea parties, so she checked in at the end of the show with a report. We'll check back in with her tomorrow to get the rest of the story.

I called on my favorite conservative pundit, John LeBoutillier. I met him many years ago when I produced the Bob Grant Show, back at WMCA in NY. John was a newly-former Congressman, and friend of Grant's who would occasionally guest host the show. Even though I disagreed with him ideologically, I always liked him. And I always enjoy sparring with him on the air. The odd thing is that we agree on many points. Go figure! (In addition to his own blog, linked above, he also writes for the ultra-right-leaning!)

Enjoy the rest of your patriots day... stay away from the teabaggers. They know not what they're protesting!
