This week, Jamelle, Joel, Monica and me chop it over the implosion of Anthony Weiner’s Congressional career, and try to make sense of the early Republican field.
Listen to the podcast here on the blog (and subscribe on iTunes). Click once to play, click again to download. (Some salty language.)
Tim Pawlenty gets his card pulled during the GOP debate and responds rather chumpishly.
John Frank profiles Rick Scott, the um, eccentric governor of Florida, in the latest issue of The American Prospect.
Monica shouts down Top Chef Masters, and the Top Chef franchise’s lingering marginalization of chefs who aren’t white dudes.
Joel does his normal duel shout-out: The State of Jones by Sally Jenkins and John Stauffer and ESPN’s documentary, Black Magic, on the integration of basketball. (ESPN has the video podcasts up on its site.)
And finally, some potentially big changes here at PB. This is all in the inchoate stages right now, but it’s exciting. (And kinda terrifying.)
As always, thank you for reading and listening.
