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.

Political Perspectives on 08/25/10

Air date: 
Wed, 08/25/2010 - 9:30am - 10:00am
