Another Day, Another Scandal

It seems like the more we learn about the previous administration, the more the wingnuts scream about Obama. To paraphrase Barney Frank, what planet do these people live on?

We'll hit the ground running for the week with a busy show tonight...

Larisa Alexandrova is managing editor for investigative news for RawStory, and she published a doozy about Karl Rove on Friday, entitled "Rove op-ed reveals he had inside info on probe." Larisa will join me live tonight, for the entire first hour of the show (11pm-12 mid ET) to give the background on this story that's got enough intrigue for a major motion picture, though we'd probably deem it too implausible to actually happen if it hadn't actually happened.

It involves the former administration, the politically appointed US attorneys, many of whom are still on the job (wtf?!?!), political prisoners, lies, leaks and more. Larisa will tell the story from the beginning, and let us know what might be in the future for Bush's brain.

You can call in with questions for Larisa too, at 866-303-2270.

In the second hour, I'll speak with Max Blumenthal, who wrote in today's Daily Beast, Behind the Obama-Hitler Slur that Lyndon LaRouche is to blame!

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) is Chairwoman of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Oversight & Investigations, and she'll weigh in during the final half hour of tonight's show on the new CIA Inspector General's report about torture and the special prosecutor appointed by AG Eric Holder and, of course, health care reform!

Hey Nicole. I usually read your blog entries in my reader but clicked over today to see if you'd made any changes to your site. It looks great! So glad to see you're still on Air America and also wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed being able to listen to you on the radio here in So Cal the other day. KTLK needs to put you on there more often! :-)
