The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/29/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/29/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
This just in: up is down, in is out and black is white -- as long as you're a Republican.

With Joe on vacation, Abe checks in on the rampant denial, duplicity and hypocrisy that constitute the conservative psyche. As President Obama's Supreme Court nominee is vetted before the Senate, we learn from the GOP why Thurgood Marshall's civil rights crusade was so dangerous: he was a "judicial activist."

We also learn from our conservative brethren that the pressing American economic problem isn't unemployment, it's the deficit. So it's perfectly acceptable -- damn near required, even -- to sacrifice workers in the name of fiscal austerity.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/22/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/22/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Is Oregon an anti-immigrant state? A new study suggests it is.

A study commissioned by a consortium of Northwestern public radio stations says that a majority of Northwesterners -- Oregonians, Washingtonians and Idahoans, or whatever they call themselves -- agree with the anti-immigrant law passed recently in Arizona. In Oregon, that support is at 61 percent.

What does it mean? Is anti-immigrant sentiment more widespread than we thought? And what is that sentiment exactly? Fear, born of cultural ignorance? Economic anxiety? Good ol' racism? A toxic brew of all three? With Joe on vacation, Abe leads the discussion.
