Can you be fairly represented by someone who doesn’t look like you, or makes more money than you, or isn’t your same age? In a new podcast DecodeDC, Andrea Seabrook (in an otherwise fascinating podcast episode) seems to make the case that, no, you can’t. Let’s look at history to test that theory.

Romney releases his tax information, proving himself “innocent” of paying $0 in taxes some years. So instead of wondering now who Harry Reid’s anonymous source was and why they were so wrong, the Left asks more information from … Romney! It’s like the Birthers who just couldn’t accept a birth certificate from Obama. Thing is, we need a catch name for these tax-insane Democrats. Post your ideas in the comments.

UN Secretary General George Orwell Ban Ki Moon says that freedom of expression should be protected…except when it shouldn’t be, like when certain groups get offended. (Any guesses one what group he’s currently trying to make exceptions for?)

Post a comment here or call me at (267) CALL-CT-0 (that is, (267) 225-5280)  and let me know what you think.

In this episode (of less than 9 minutes this time), I take a look at what constitutes “racism” these days. You dare not call the President “cool”, or you are just one of those right-wing Republicans that are upset solely because he’s black. That’s right; the “race card” is  now cool. Sort of.

Also, I talk about slippery slope arguments last time, and now we see that, the way the health care bill was argued, Justices of the Supreme Court have the same concern. The problem was, the government couldn’t tell them where the slope would end.

And a quick story about an old phone. Really.
