program date: 
Tue, 08/31/2010

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

 

The Teabaggers -- noisy, bigoted and ignorant, but basically harmless, right? And if we're lucky, they'll hijack the Republican Party and nominate a bunch of un-electable loons. The best thing the Teabaggers can do is to keep making asses of themselves in public.

Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans five years ago this week. Katrina's impact went beyond the loss of life and property to reveal deeply rooted attitudes about race many Americans thought had withered away. Jo Ann and Dave talked about the various aspects of Katrina's impacts, including the permanent displacement of over 100,000 residents, the reshaping of the city and the federal indictments against the New Orleans police.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 08/31/10

Air date: 
Tue, 08/31/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe examine the billionaire backers of the Tea Party movement.

The Teabaggers -- noisy, bigoted and ignorant, but basically harmless, right? And if we're lucky, they'll hijack the Republican Party and nominate a bunch of un-electable loons. The best thing the Teabaggers can do is to keep making asses of themselves in public.

But what if they have friends in high places? A bombshell article by Jane Mayer in the New Yorker paints a vivid portrait of two such highly-placed friends. David and Charles Koch, the patriarch sublings of Koch Industries, are philanthropists of note -- and also deep-pocketed backers of the Tea Party and other conservative causes. Abe and Joe delve into the New Yorker piece and discuss the role of big money in today's discourse.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 08/17/10

Air date: 
Tue, 08/17/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Joe returns from vacation to join Abe in taking a snapshot of the body politic.

It's summer. It's hot, it's sticky, and an election looms in November. What can we expect? Nearly halfway through President Obama's first term, what is the state of the American zeitgeist? Has the president delivered on his promise of hope and change? Are the Teabaggers worth taking seriously (no, really ...)? Have we shrugged off the toxic malaise of the Bush Years? What can we expect on Election Day?

And perhaps most importantly, do Abe and Joe have anything worth saying?
