What a delight to come home from a thrilling evening at the theatre and see Kevin Drum on the Moyers show. I’ve never seen him before, although I began reading his stuff a decade ago, when he was one of my early blogstops. At his then blog, CalPundit, he originated the practice of “Friday Cat Blogging” – now widely imitated. HIs beat, then as now, was current events. He’s been at Mother Jones for a few years now and he, along with David Corn of the same magazine were Moyers’ guests tonight.
As usual, a terrific and informative hour. About the financial services industry, about Geitner (his chief of staff is a former Goldman Sacks lobbyist – good god!) and Bernanke and Obama and what needs to be done and isn’t being done. And about how thoroughly that industry has the Congress doing its bidding. It’s a grim picture and Drum pointed to the failure of the media, the business press in particular.
Another great show from that commie, pinko, faggot, anti-American Baptist minister. Thank goodness he’s retiring and we won’t have to hear any more of this nonsense. We have better things to do.
