The Professional Left Podcast with Driftglass and Blue Gal
Blind Trust and Teabagger Faith.May 21, 2010 Driftglass and Blue Gal
Driftglass and Blue Gal talk about music; can a song be too old to be cool? In our main event, can Driftglass trust a Chicago Democratic politician who changed her position, and now says Cook County is too broke to allow for a tax cut? Faith and trust in politicians is often an anathma to good government. The Tea Party has more faith in Sarah Palin than in their own eyesight. But what if you can't judge whether someone is lying or not? Finally, DG/BG remind themselves that The Tea Party Movement is actually a wholly-owned subsidiary of FOX news, and was predicted by Frank Capra's "Meet John Doe." Plus, it's time to slam David Brooks again. You'll love it, unless you're David Brooks.
