Yes, it's a "scheduled absence" today. I'm on my way to hang out with and/or near President Obama. That is, I'm taking my kids on a standard, public White House tour this morning. I was going to bring some o.j. and some granola bars in case the President came out of the Oval Office looking for a snack, but they won't let us bring food in. So, sorry, Mr. President. You're just going to have to fend for yourself.
So it's what I hope will be one last rerun today, as we're still waiting for the Official Kagro in the Morning Super Computer to stop playing chess against itself and get back to work. Today, it's the the June 2, 2014 show:
Greg Dworkin helps us round up the weekend's top stories, including the POW exchange, the EPA's new emissions rules (and all the controversy that comes with them), the VA, and how Gop intransigence accidentally yielded a national health care exchange. A musical interlude from Lauren Mayer (aka PsychoSuperMom), "GOP Hypocrisy Blues (VA Edition)." An extended discussion of the issues wrapped up in the POW swap. Another open carry demonstration, this time hijacking the Home Depot brand. And now, even the NRA recognizes that this is kind of dumb. And speaking of guns & dumb, Scott Brown is tangled up in something weird & getting weirder.

The Josh Duggar shocker takes up a considerable amount of time today. The Boy Scouts of America are finally coming around to reality, it seems. Irish abroad are heading home to vote in today's historic referendum on marriage equality. Greg Dworkin agrees to come in (and fight through technical difficulties) on his birthday to round up stories on ACA's increasing popularity and entrenchment, Chris Christie's attempt at recovery that hometown papers aren't buying, handicapping who gets into the Gop debates, Obama's (un) lame duck status, a peek inside the American Board of Internal Medicine's finances, and Bill O'Reilly's in hot water (and in denial) again. NYT reporter goes way out on a limb on Hillary. Armando joins in to discuss the Duggar & O'Reilly news. Kansas, whose governor blows a lot, takes punishing the poor to a new level. Journos begin admitting they were wrong about the "Fight for $15." Self-driving cars might not necessarily kill us all.
