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

It's Friday, Friday! Gotta temporarily increase the borrowing authority of the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the purpose of carrying out the National Flood Insurance Program on Friday!

That's what the House will be up to tomorrow. For the first part of the day, anyway. This is the first down payment on Speaker (still) Boehner's pledge to bring Hurricane Sandy relief legislation to the floor, placating the uprising among the handful of Congressional Republicans still in existence from the Northeast.

After that, we get to complete the circle of our in-depth look into the workings of the Electoral College, as Congress convenes in a Joint Session at 1 p.m. for the counting of the electoral votes. Exciting!

Then, at 2 p.m., the House will impeach Obama over the rumor that he'll mint the trillion dollar platinum coin. Also exciting!

And yes, there will be more on the show about filibuster reform. I'll explain what happened yesterday, what it means, and give you some secret information and insight that will make you sound super smart at parties full of nerds.

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.

    Three things to chew on:

    • Tomasky on why Obama won the negotiation:

    Dear Liberals: Stop Complaining

    Obama isn’t Captain Liberal. He’s the president. And liberal pundits who are up in arms about the fiscal-cliff deal seem not to recognize the difference.
    • Tomasky on why Obama lost the negotiation:

    The Case Against Obama's Victory

    Obama and most Democrats tend to make a fairness/compassion argument against domestic spending cuts the GOP wants: "I'm not going to balance the budget on the backs of working poor people" and so on. That, too, polls well, so maybe it's the right thing.

    But he really should make a macroeconomic argument as well. I'd think that might be possible by using the European case: "They chose austerity and they're stuck in neutral over there." It can't hurt for people to see a Democratic president saying we should not emulate Europe, which leaves the GOP saying we should. A nice switch!

    • Matt Miller on what he'd do (as king and dictator) to fix the country:

    Making future cliffs count

    That means the jig is up: The welfare state in an aging United States requires higher taxes on the middle class, phased in once jobs and growth pick back up.

    But the new taxes shouldn’t be income taxes. Now is the time to introduce a small carbon, VAT or financial transactions tax — or, preferably, all three. Small rates can rise over time. Use these new taxes in part to buy down (and eventually eliminate) corporate income and payroll taxes. (For every two dollars in new taxes from these sources, for example, one dollar in corporate income and payroll taxes could be cut).

    Do you folks know that "today's" podcast has "skips" in it? I thought it had something to do with downloading, but I just playing it here on Kos and it has the same skips (so your statements are often garbled).

    Just letting you know!

    It is ignorance which is hopeless.

    I enjoy the amazing zen of anti-pundit Kagro.
    You thought there wasn't a bullet left in the chamber so why bother to check?
