The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/20/10

Air date: 
Tue, 07/20/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
With Joe on vacation, Abe checks in on the fracas between the NAACP and the Teabaggers.

This just in: some members of the Tea Party movement have said racist things in public, and displayed racist slogans and images at public events. This is apparently completely acceptable in conservative circles. What's not acceptable, it seems, is pointing out the public racism when it happens.

A dustup between the NAACP and the Tea Party movement throws the racist streak in modern conservatism into stark, ugly relief. It's the next chapter in a sordid tale that predates our Republic. But the good news? The Tea Party's visible virulence is proof that things are getting better.

FEATURED ARTIST ~ BLOCKHEAD: Interview, Live Mix, & More

Short Description: 
Who needs facts when you've got opinions?

Facts? Don't bother me with the facts. An article from the Boston Globe discusses the ramifications of a University of Michigan study which shows that reality has very little bearing on one's deeply held opinions, whether right or wrong. In fact (so to speak), the study suggests a perverse tendency to cling even more tightly to one's beliefs whenever reality proves to be inconvenient.

With Joe on vacation, Abe probes the murky waters where faith and fact overlap.
