paulie-b Tonight's guest: David Alinsky, son of the "father of community organizing" Saul Alinsky. We'll discuss his father's controversial career and how his tactics are still being used successfully by the Obama campaign.

Join Paulie Abeles of Real Democrats for a weekly call-in show “Sins of Omission”--- aimed at giving listeners insight into the topics of the day beyond the nightly news.

Each week the show features interviews with newsmakers and an opportunity in the second half of the program for listeners to call in and ask questions. The February 2nd program features the son of famous leftist community organizer Saul Alinsky, a considerable influence on Barack Obama.

Writes Abeles, "Alinsky’s 'Rules for Radicals' is the primer for the training Obama received through the Gamaliel Foundation and the graduate course he took from Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation while he was at Harvard. Obama taught Alinsky’s principles of 'power analysis' working for ACORN and their Project Vote subsidiary."
