Fiorina and Carson formally join the 2016 race. Noted crazy person goads with a "Draw Muhammad" cartoon contest, curiously herding her flock into a "gun-free zone," though they all miraculously survive. Guns Everywhere Georgia GunFAIL roundup: The Gwinnett Co. Sheriff accidentally shoots a real estate agent at a model home showing, and 1-year-old kids are accidentally shot on three successive days in Augusta, Macon & the AL border town of Phenix City. Republicans resume reconciliation rumblings. In the wake of a spectacular drone strike story and the Baltimore uprising, how did Rand Paul suddenly become invisible on two issues he says are top priorities? Hot topic: current policing crisis and the Clinton crime bill. Can you run from the cops? Depends where you are! 7th circuit upholds local assault weapons ban. Mutual funds and inequality. Are they the new trusts?

Capitol GunFAIL! Greg Dworkin rounds up Bridgegate, Sanders, Republican demands for work requirements for Medicaid expansion, Rick Scott's continuing contortions, and Jeb's Charles Murray fandom. The invasion of Texas is underway, where conservatives prepare their gay marriage freak-out. A near "perfect storm" of GunFAIL as a school cop shoots himself with a derringer in his pocket while at Walmart. Armando calls in on the Vermont GMO labeling law decision & the TPP, and John Dickerson's thoughts on Bernie Sanders. Wrapping up on yesterday's topics: how ShotSpotter monitors for gunfire, and what kind of issues that raises; Samsung's TV that listens to you; the surveillance we "volunteer" for, and; how Motel 6 reportedly started faxing all its guests' names to the cops!

Lots more follow-up to yesterday's extended discussion that started in Baltimore, went on to Fourth Amendment theory, and ended up on the zombie "secret hold" in the Senate. All as part of one continuous story, somehow!

You won't find radio like this anywhere else!

I won't say why you won't. But you won't!

Greg Dworkin joins us, with Baltimore still dominating the headlines, and Baltimore mom still being debated. Sanders is in, facing long odds as expected, but along with O'Malley, adding to the bigger picture. Back to the subject of mass protest, a cop reportedly tells a NYC crowd "If we could arrest all of you we might." What if they could? What if we kept giving police the tools to get closer and closer to that? Or what if we gave them tools that let them track or even punish protesters they can't physically arrest? Aren't we doing that right now? Do we even know who's tracking us at this point? Mike Lee says he can do something about it. But can he? Can anyone? Hell, the Senate couldn't even really manage to curtail their own powers (as with the zombie "secret hold"). How can they expect to curtail executive power that claims it's unrestrainable? Should we be worried that it hasn't been that long since George Bush claimed it, and now his brother's running?

We're clearly not through with Baltimore yet. At the very least, it'll likely be the prism through which we view all the other issues we've got piling up. And there's no end to them.

Time to start wading through!

Apparently, Bill Kristol invokes Hitler a lot. And he's terrible on Baltimore. Cable news coverage once again found wanting. Crazy Texans get crazy governor to do crazy thing. SCOTUS hears death penalty cases with issues in play as broad as they are deep. Liberia kicks out homeopaths there to experiment with Ebola "cures." Bernie Sanders is in. Grousing to follow. How does the 2016 field stack up historically in terms of endorsements? Can governors running in 2016 walk the tightrope? A roundup of marriage equality items. Joan McCarter discusses the issues of the day, plus the latest budget hang-ups, the Gop's Obamacare fix-vs.-repair conundrum, and Rick Scott's continuing Medicaid suit drama. Secret recording surfaces of Robert Bates, bragging about using Sheriff's Dept. connections to do favors for friends, and harass enemies.

So, hey, Baltimore. Still.

But on the other hand, Joan McCarter. No pressure, Joan!

Baltimore dominates the morning headlines, so Greg Dworkin points us first to Ta-Nehisi Coates. Shifting gears, three views on guns, from scientists, the public, and the government. And there's always the view that just rejects reality, as with the ACA & the pundits of doom. Baltimore's mayor botches a line & the right goes bonkers. An area teacher's Facebook post offers an alternative story of the descent into violence. Remarkable comments from an Orioles exec. Tulsa Sheriff finds a scapegoat. Study: Gun ownership and uncontrollable anger go hand in hand. But there's more. What if I told you that guns actually spray copious amounts of a powerful neurotoxin known to spark anger and impulse control issues? Crazy, right? Well, what if I told you the neurotoxin was... lead? The app that tells gun enthusiasts how to find the homes of people they think are anti-gun.

Turns out there's some minor interest in Jeb's SuperPAC after all, though Greg Dworkin notes Nate Silver's comment on what Jeb's money hasn't done for him so far. Marco Rubio becomes flavor of the month. Jeb stumbles into a pro-"death panel" stance. Polling on Iran, marriage equality. W thinks he should be heard on the Middle East. Speaking of marriage equality, arguments before SCOTUS tomorrow. In anticipation of the arguments, or more precisely, the mechanics of the coming decision, Armando joins the discussion, and adds observations on both conservative and liberal aspersions against Clinton. And of course, we end up getting all theoretical about the political role of the Court.

We're back for another Monday. We had a pretty strong run of shows last week, if I do say so myself! And there's really no "ifs" about it. I did say it myself! You all saw me!

Anyway, we're in for another week of our usual mix of politics, polls and procedure, plus the latest gun craziness and inside-outing of economics.

If you haven't joined us yet, come on in! The water's fine! And if you can't swim, don't worry. The water's also metaphorical.

Greg Dworkin rounds up the traditional media's "smoke/fire" takes on Clinton, not to mention the weird deals feeding those smoky/hot takes. Oh, plus also some more Benghazi. Even the Gop's "fresh faces" are stuck pretending to be old faces. Analyzing the 2016 fundamentals. Thank God someone in the press finally tells Hillary how to Clinton. Rosalyn MacGregor notes MI voters soon head to the polls on a critical sales tax & roads proposal. The Clinton Rules are back. (If they ever left.) The 10-vote gap between the Lynch cloture & confirmation votes, explained. Can hipsters make unions retro cool? While we're asking, can they make corporate governance retro cool, too?
