Teabaggin' it old school

Hordes of Real Americans (TM) descended on Washington this weekend as the Teabaggers held their "Sept. 12" march and rally. You know, the kind of event where people are so patriotic they fly Confederate flags and call for the president to be sent to Kenya. It's all part of the continuing outbreak of Aggrieved White Man Syndrome, which is what happens when a privileged group begins to lose the prestige to which it feels entitled.

Exonerated: Curtis Edward McCarty and the death penalty

Curtis Edward McCarty was convicted and sentenced to death twice for a 1982 murder in Oklahoma City.

McCarty was the 124th person in the United States to be exonerated and released since 1973 after spending time on death row.

Jo Ann and Dave talk with McCarty about his experience and his struggle to win his freedom.

Making the case to recall Mayor Sam Adams

program date: 
Thu, 09/03/2009

Volunteers with the campaign to recall Mayor Sam Adams have a little over a month left to collect the 32,183 valid signatures from Portland voters needed to force the Portland mayor to resign or face a special recall election. Campaign organizers have told the press it will be close but support is growing. The campaign - sparked by revelations by Adams that he had lied about his relationship with one of his interns - has brought together strange political bedfellows - from former Adams supporters to extreme conservatives - as well as made Portlanders reflect on how we should judge our elected officials.

Jo Ann and Dave talk with campaign organizer Jasun Wurster about the campaign's chances of success and who has joined the ranks of Portlanders who think the mayor must go. Do you think the mayor's actions warrant his removal? Does focusing on recalling the mayor prevent Portlanders from addressing bigger problems facing our city?
