Where Liberalism Is Alive and Well!

The Extremely Liberal Podcast Talking Drones, The Filibuster Bluster and Polls As A Crutch for the Media!

This podcast was recorded on March 13, 2013. I’ve been a very bad podcast poster and deserve to be scolded by someone. In this episode we talk about Rand Paul’s filibuster that brought out support from the faux-left, those who conveniently ignore Rand’s crazy ideas about such things as the Civil Rights Act. We also talk about Chez Pazienza’s great article that caused David Sirota to lose his mind and attack Goldie Taylor for tweeting it. He shouldn’t have done that, as I’m sure he learned very quickly. We round things out by talking about how the media uses and abuses polls. Give a listen. More episodes coming soon…

The Extremely Liberal Podcast Talks Drones, Navy Seals And Baby Pundits!

In this episode, recorded on February 13, 2013, we talk about Joe’s encounter with a Navy Seal with irony on top of irony as the backdrop. We also spend a good deal of time talking about drones and the reality associated with the different “tools of war” as they have evolved over the years and I get a mention on the Poli-Sci-Fi Radio podcast by my hero, Steve Benen.

Want some good, liberal, pragmatic talk? Give us a listen.

P.S. Here is a link to a great piece by Wil Saletan titled, “In Defense of Drones: They’re the worst form of war, except for all the others.” He was attacked by the usual suspects for this piece with all sorts of crazy shit being projected on him because of it. Here is an example of some Tweets that show the maturity level of his critics.

Presenting The Extremely Liberal Podcast

I’ve been wanting to do a podcast for quite a while and finally got off my ass and made it happen. Although I enjoy writing and will continue to do so, I find that I can express myself much better with words in the air rather than trying to commit them to paper.

One reason it has taken me so long is I’ve been trying to think of a good person to do them with. Joe is a friend and colleague of mine and we’ve always been able to discuss politics with ease. He has agreed to help me with this little venture.

We’ve recorded 3 podcasts so far, but I am posting the latest first, because it is more timely. I will post the first two in good time, so you can hear our predictions about the first two debates (Presidential 1 & Vice Presidential) and how far off we were.

Without further ado, here is Episode 3 of “The Extremely Liberal Podcast”.
