Hall of Shame: It was quite the wingnut weekend
Steve Leser interviews Code Pink's Medea Benjamin about drones and discusses various other of the big issues of the week.
This week our top story is the silly lawsuit that House Speaker John Boehner says he will file against the President for supposed abuse of Executive Power. We will also have updates on Russia and Ukraine and the important Supreme Court decision that affects whether womens clinics can keep abortion protesters at bay.
At the end we will have our trademark weekly hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense or shameful nonsense, respectively.
If you want to write to me and give me your opinion of any topic I cover, write to email@example.com and I may just read your opinion on the air. Again that’s firstname.lastname@example.org
Who is responsible for the divisiveness in American Politics today?
Is it possible that one person is responsible for the genesis of nasty polemicists like Michele Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter?
Could that same person be the reason we cannot resolve issues like budget disagreements and the fiscal cliff? Are they the reason we have trumped up issues like Monicagate and Benghazi?
Find out the surprising answer during tonights special edition of Making Sense with Steve Leser.
Today is the third and final edition of three special holiday end of year shows. During the last two weeks shows, I replayed interviews I did with Susan Eisenhower, Medea Benjamin, Pat Buchanan and Governor Bill Richardson combined with special forwords on Edward Snowden, Bristol Palin and Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson and the firing of Martin Bashir.
This week I will air previously unplayed content where I asked two groups of Liberal and Conservative pundits how they see aspects of the 2014 elections playing out. Guests include progressive blogger Lee Papa aka The Rude Pundit, Republican Strategists Ryan Girdusky and Noelle Nikpour and Democratic Strategist Penny Lee.
Today, I am going to talk about a couple of the big topics of the week including my disagreement with the Politifact.com choice for lie of the year (The President's statement that You can keep your insurance if you want to keep it), the anniversary of the Newton murders and what we should do to crack down on rapists. At the end we will have our trademark weekly hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense or shameful nonsense, respectively.

1. An update on the NSA Surveillance revelations
