The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/29/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/29/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
This just in: up is down, in is out and black is white -- as long as you're a Republican.

With Joe on vacation, Abe checks in on the rampant denial, duplicity and hypocrisy that constitute the conservative psyche. As President Obama's Supreme Court nominee is vetted before the Senate, we learn from the GOP why Thurgood Marshall's civil rights crusade was so dangerous: he was a "judicial activist."

We also learn from our conservative brethren that the pressing American economic problem isn't unemployment, it's the deficit. So it's perfectly acceptable -- damn near required, even -- to sacrifice workers in the name of fiscal austerity.
