In today's weirdest news, we took a look at the story of the arrest of four active duty soldiers in an alleged plot to assassinate President Obama, and also apparently put millions of American princesses under their spell by poisoning the Washington State apple crop. That lead to a wide-ranging exploration of the parallels between urban gangs and right-wing militias, and whether John Galt or Vito Corleone had the more realistic method of separating onesself from society.

What a show!

In news from closer to reality. The irony of Republicans rediscovering the "debt clock" at their convention, and of RNC Chair Reince Preibus noting that each family's share of the debt increase could be covered by less than two off-the-cuff Mitt Romeny bets.

And of course, Greg Dworkin joined the show for his regular polling and issues segment for the first time since David noticed Greg had shed the old DemFromCT moniker. Nice powers of observation, there, David. Well done!

While you're here, you should also give us The Like on The Facebook, or whatever it is the kids say these days. And on The Twitter as well, where we're @DailyKosRadio.

Daily Kos Radio is on the air LIVE, 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.

How to Listen

Your options to listen LIVE:

  • Click on the embedded Flash player below

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
