And now, the Clip o' the Day. Today's presentation: On the historic wrongness of Republicans about everything, ever.
Today's clip goes back a week or two, but when isn't it timely to remind ourselves that Republicans have been wrong forever about almost everything good that ever happened? I've talked about this before, and it makes good context for the radio clip, so take a quick look at what I'm talking about, and you'll have a much better idea of what I mean.
Put another way, I've been thinking lately that their scaremongering is the Wilhelm Scream of politics, and if you've ever heard that and had it pointed out to you, your ears will prick up every time you hear it used, and it becomes almost humorous every time you hear it again. And the real joke is how often you'll hear it.Now when you hear Teabaggers scream "Socialism!" you'll laugh in their faces. And nothing could be better for us and worse for them than laughing in their faces with regularity.
Well, that's what we do over at Daily Kos Radio. We weave all these disparate threads together every day. Because we've got three freaking hours to do it!
Seriously. We're a pretty good alternative, if I do say so myself. And really, I'm forced to say so myself. At least until you people start saying so. And again, I most heartily encourage you to do just that. Using Teh Social Mediaz, if necessary.
Daily Kos Radio is on the air, Monday through Friday, now from 9 a.m. to noon, ET. We start with two hours of the Kagro in the Morning show from 9-11, and then it's The Ministry of Truth, with Armando Llorens, starring Jesse LaGreca from 11-12.
This week Kagro in the Morning is in encore presentations, which is a fancy way of saying re-runs. But The Ministry of Truth is still live and all new, and now with at least 50% inadvertently broadcast background chatter!
