    Following historical precedent, Republicans who predicted doom in the passage of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, the Clinton budget and stimulus program, and the Obama stimulus plan, and were wrong on each count, are now also wrong on predictions of…

    21 July 2014, 1:00 pm by: David Waldman

    Greg Dworkin's news round-up was essential in getting the show somewhat grounded after a long weekend out of the country, plus the distraction of Netroots Nation for many of my other online news and issues lifelines. "Goodbye to the Republican Wave?" Elizabeth…

    Even as Netroots Nation 2014 draws near, Greg Dworkin continues manning his post! The continued TradMed insistence on a Clinton/Warren schism, CBO numbers on health care get better and better. Why don't they just Moneyball government like they do with…

    2 July 2014, 2:41 pm by: David Waldman

    Belgium sucks. Greg Dworkin says that's an anecdote, not data. We didn't overlook either of the top two "most overlooked races." And nobody's quite ready to look past Hobby Lobby. SCOTUSBlog isn't the SCOTUS, but SCOTUS is its biggest reader. Republicans begin…
  • Kagro in the Morning - July 1, 2014

    1 July 2014, 2:08 pm by: David Waldman

    26 June 2014, 12:29 pm by: David Waldman

    Greg Dworkin's morning roundup focuses on the MS run-off. Vox = "the left," apparently. Todd Akin's back. Plan B on the IRS "scandal": missing e-mails they hope you won't notice don't actually bear on the first "scandal." Never mind that lost e-mails didn't…
  • Kagro in the Morning - June 25, 2014

    25 June 2014, 1:50 pm by: David Waldman

    Today's the Mississippi Republican Senate primary election run-off, and it turns out the McDaniel/Tea Party camp will be turning out "poll watchers"... in the predominantly black precincts. So will they be open carriers, as we saw in Alabama? It's primary day…

    20 June 2014, 1:43 pm by: David Waldman

    Our Friday grab-bag had a little bit of everything in it. The mugshot that got 30,000+ likes on Facebook & why it matters. (It doesn't.) Sean Hannity proves the Heritage hatefest wasn't berating Muslims by berating the same Muslim. A collection of wrongness on…
  • Kagro in the Morning - June 19, 2014

    19 June 2014, 1:24 pm by: David Waldman

    We started out by taking a look at one of the underreported details from last weekend's high school reunion shooting in East Peoria, IL. Yes, an off-duty FBI agent shot down the shooter. But apparently he shot just as another person was about to tackle the…

  • Kagro in the Morning - June 13

    13 June 2014, 12:27 pm by: David Waldman

    Once again, it's all too easy to do a Friday show full of particularly galling GunFAIL events: A Waffle House employee has shot & killed a customer. A grandfather in Janesville, WI drops & forgets his loaded gun in the outfield of a 12-year-old girls' softball…

  • Kagro in the Morning - June 11, 2014

    11 June 2014, 2:01 pm by: David Waldman

    Much chatter about Eric Cantor's primary defeat! Both Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter have much worth saying on that subject and more. An extraordinary achievement in gun trolling. The guy who beat Cantor's an economist, but has no position on the minimum wage…

    9 June 2014, 2:53 pm by: David Waldman

    We're back from the weekend break, but had to reset the random/mass shooting clock thanks to events in Seattle and Las Vegas. And a Democratic Virgina state senator resigned, handing partisan control of the senate to Republicans, who can now block ACA-funded…
  • Kagro in the Morning - June 6, 2014

    6 June 2014, 2:46 pm by: David Waldman

    The flip-flopping Bergdahl tweets from conservatives. Heartbleed redux! Are your selfies helping the NSA build a facial recognition database? Baseless speculation about "driverless cars!" Armando joins in to discuss emptywheel's synthesis of the O'Hehir and…
