We're back, post-Thanksgiving Day, which you all know is the Pearl Harbor of the War on Christmas. Greg Dworkin joined us for the Monday Abbreviated Abbreviated Pundit Roundup. Yes, we abbreviate things twice in the mornings. We then turned our eyes back to the upcoming filibuster fight, with a review of the most recent reporting from Politico on the subject, which somehow ignored until the very last sentence of the entire article that leading Democratic proponents and leading Republican opponents of filibuster reform actually agreed on the single most important proposal, the so-called "talking filibuster." So there you have it. Modern politics and political reporting in a nutshell. Partisans are at one another's throats, threatening complete gridlock, because they agree on policy.

From there, an equally amazing exploration of Fox News's troll-baiting "War on Men" article, and finally Adam Davidson's New York Times piece asserting that the genius captains of American industry are scratching their heads, wondering why highly-skilled laborers who had invested tens of thousands of dollars in their education and training were not lining up to take the fast food-level wages they were offering. What a puzzler! Maybe a tax cut will help them clear their heads. Someone get these guys some retention bonuses, ASAP!

Keep giving us those "favorites" and "thumbs up" on Stitcher, and anywhere else you might be finding the show! We continue to climb in the rankings, reaching #8 in the News & Politics section, and #23 overall!

Plus, this big news: the Kagro in the Morning show is now available for download & subscription in the iTunes store!

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.

  •  David, I'd sure appreciate it if you'd write a (0+ / 0-)

    piece on the filibuster. There seems to be an attention span problem that is preventing folks from listening to your explanations--could you please write a piece to bring everyone up to date.
    And, thank you for your excellent work on the subject.

    Warren is neither a Clintonesque triangulator nor an Obamaesque conciliator. She is a throwback to a more combative progressive tradition, and her candidacy is a test of whether that approach can still appeal to voters.-J. Toobin "New Yorker"
