In the fifty-third episode, Todd and his panelists Peace, Freedom, and Prosperity blogger and writer Michael Shanklin and anarcho-libertarian attorney Matt D. Harris discussed the GOP presidential debate in South Carolina, Ron Paul's answer to immigration at the debate, Sheldon Richman's criticism of Ron Paul's answer and the ensuing discussion on his thread on Facebook as well as Todd's thread on the subject, Congressman Anthony Weiner announces his public resignation over the transmission of pics of his genitals to a 21-year-old college student from Seattle, Washington and his ties to an ex-adult film star, the Republican and Democratic hypocrisy over the matter, the tragic death of Dr. Jack Kevorkian and how his support for and practice of A.S. has shaped the way we look at the terminally ill, opponents of former chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker who ruled that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional are defeated by another ruling in Walker's favor despite their attempts to smear him, GOP Congresswoman Michelle Bachman who launched her bid to become the first female president of the United States, galvanizing support for "intelligent design" in the public "government" schools and more.
[*Note: This episode was ok, and the energy level was on the low side. Jim for some reason didn't show up and didn't return my calls or anything, which worried me. Hopefully he'll have a good reason for it. Other than that, the show was ok. Mike left earlier than he should have without an explanation, so the last 40 minutes of the episode was between me and Matt. Overall, it was an average episode IMHO.]
