Daily Kos Radio's Kagro in the Morning show podcasts are now available through iTunes.

We've also got a new and improved version of our embedded live stream player, below.

We're back on the "air" for the last two business days of 2012, not counting the one next week, which we all know will really only be spent watching the clock, anyway.

People haven't stopped shooting each other, nor have the people trying to protect themselves from the people doing the shooting stopped dropping, losing or forgetting their guns on their way to the historic rescue they're planning.

The Fiscal Thingy is turning out pretty much the way everyone thought it would, which is to say that no one has any idea how to avoid it or whether anyone really wants to, anyway.

Oh, and Dick Armey stole $8,000,000 from FreedomWorks at gunpoint, or something. Therefore, liberty. So there's plenty to talk about.

We're LIVE at 9 a.m. ET with Kagro in the Morning, thanks to

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

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.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
Rescue this diary, and add a note:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?

    there's Dick Armey. But there's also Norm Ornstein (and Charles Pierce):

    I have to confess, I didn't know that you didn't have to be an elected member of the House to be its Speaker. While interesting, I think it's rather like the fact that, theoretically, any baptized Catholic male can be elected pope. (IIRC, the last layman to be elected pope was Callixtus III, who became pope in 1455. He was a Borgia, and was a lawyer by trade. Strike two. Anyway, one of the great unfounded rumors in papal history is that Callixtus excommunicated Halley's Comet. He actually did order a new trial for Joan Of Arc, at which she was posthumously acquitted, which seems a shame.) Nobody outside of the House is going to get this job any more than the Holy Spirit is likely to move the next conclave to select Andrew Sullivan or, well, me, even though I already have a name picked out. I'm going to be Lando II.

      “In September or October there will be a hyped up outbreak of the swine flu which they’ll say is as bad as the bubonic plague to scare the bed-wetters to vote for healthcare reform,” said Mr Armey. “That is the only way they can push something on to the American people that the American people don’t want.”

    We also know that state-level regulation is insufficient by itself, because firearms simply flow from states where laws are lax to states where laws are stricter. Some pathways even have names, such as the Iron Pipeline from the Southeast to New England. At gun shows in California, where direct private-party sales are illegal, such sales are almost nonexistent. At shows just across the border in Reno, Nevada, where private-party sales are legal, dozens occur, and a third of the cars in the parking lot are from California.

    Great Show Kagro, Dr. Dworkin.

    I thought of this when you asked if anyone paid attention to what their coffee cup told them.

    If you recommend a book, and provide an Amazon link, you are never, ever allowed to bitch about book stores closing up.

    I know it was unrelated to most of the content of today's show, but if you'd like to take a look at it and see where I was going (and intend to go later), here it is:
