Kat here giving you the lineup for today.
First, RadioNation with Laura Flanders airs live tonight, a new broadcast:
We're live in Miami just a few days before the Florida primary. Who's voting and who's making sure those votes will count? We'll hear from Irma Palacios about the extraordinary work Democracia USA is doing registering new voters. And From Gihan Perera of the Miami Workers Center who have made pollwatching a part of their work. All that and a RadioNation-assisted victory in Ohio, and on Sunday a chance to re-hear last week's broadcast from Mississippi.
It's all on RadioNation with Laura Flanders this weekend on Air America Radio.
So check that out. Last week Malik Rahim and Jordan Flaherty were pretty amazing. You don't want to go through next week with people saying, "Hey, did you hear ___?" and have to be caught up. (Though by midweek, you can catch an archived version of the broadcast here, if you do miss it.) RadioNation with Laura Flanders airs from seven to ten p.m. Eastern Time, each Saturday and Sunday. You can use the link to listen online, you can listen via XM satellite radio or, if you have an Air America Radio station broadcasting in your area, you can listen over the traditional broadcast airwaves.
Now the schedule here. Everyone's off, don't visit this page.
Ruth will have a new report. She's going to be focused on Iraq. I don't know if Isaiah will have a new comic or not. He's on vacation and West has already picked one of the classics to rerun. That doesn't mean he won't have one. When C.I. posts later, there may be word on that.
I will have a CD review this weekend. Probably not today. I'll probably finish it today and it will run Monday.
C.I. will be posting here today. Right now? There's a roundtable that they're finishing. Rebecca put together another one last night and the hour was late when they started so they ended up winding down with the promise to tack an hour and half to it (at least) today. Participating are Rebecca, C.I., Trina, Betty and Elaine. (If I left out someone, my bad.)
There will also be a roundtable in Polly's Brew Sunday morning that was done this morning. Participating in that were: Polly, Gareth, DK, Shirley, Jim, Dona, Ty, C.I., Wally, Cedric,
Ruth and myself. Polly didn't realize it would be a question of whether or not she'd be putting out a new Brew but that she did get a few e-mails on that. She said to pass on that there will be the usual Brew and that, in England, they're not celeberating Labor Day. (She said it very nicely but very funny. I told her she should add those two sentences to her column.)
The Third Estate Sunday Review will publish a new edition tomorrow. Since the gang are still out here and since it is a holiday weekend, my argument is that they should go by our time (our time out here). But who knows?
As soon as the roundtable is finished, C.I. will be posting here about the New York Times, Iraq, etc.
In case you missed Wally ("THIS JUST IN! DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS DO HAVE A PULSE!") and Cedric ("Democrats do have a pulse") doing their joint post, here it is in full:
BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIX MIX - DC.
THIS JUST IN!
DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS DO HAVE A PULSE!
THOUGH THE WATCHDOGS ON THE LEFT LARGELY FELT THE NEED TO OFFER HISTORY LESSONS WHEN SECRETARY OF OFFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD SMEARED CRITICS OF THE ADMINISTRATION'S ILLEGAL WAR IN IRAQ, THE DEMOCRATS CAME OUT OF THEIR COMA AND BACK TO LIFE.
CALLING OUT TALK THAT NO U.S. OFFICIAL SHOULD BE MAKING, THE DEMOCRATS STOOD FIRM AND SOME CALLED FOR HIS RESIGNATION.
WHILE THIS WENT ON, AGAIN, YOUR WATCHDOGS OF THE LEFT DEMONSTRATED HOW TRULY USELESS THEY CAN BE AS THEY SAW THE SMEAR AS AN OPPORTUNITY NOT TO CALL RUMSFELD OUT BUT TO OFFER HISTORY LESSONS.
SAVE THE LECTURES, TEACH, YOU DEMONSTRATED HOW WORTHLESS YOU ARE.
THANKFULLY THE DEMOCRATS STOOD TALL IN 1 OF THE MOST SURPRISING MOMENTS OF 2006.
WHEN SECRETARY OF OFFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD TRIED TO CLAIM HE HAD BEEN MISQUOTED IN THE PRESS, HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI'S SPOKESPERSON STATED THAT THEY HAD READ THE SPEECH AND WERE STANDING BY THE REMARKS.
MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI ADDED, "IF MR. RUMSFELD IS SO CONCERNED WITH COMPARISONS TO WORLD WAR II, HE SHOULD EXPLAIN
WHY OUR TROOPS HAVE NOW BEEN FIGHTING IN IRAQ LONGER THAN IT TOOK OUR FORCES TO DEFEAT THE NAZIS IN EUROPE."
THAT'S HOW YOU FIGHT. LET'S HOPE THE SPINE STICKS.
