Conservatism: the gnawing fear that someone, somewhere, might be having a good time.
Hosted by Abe Proctor. Joe Uris is still on vacation.
In the 2010 elections, the GOP snatched up statehouses and state legislatures across the country. Predictably, an onslaught of regressive legislation has ensued -- againstwomen, against minorities, against the environment, against voting rights. Even against efficient lightbulbs.
What's up here? What's behind this need to make sure everyone knows his -- or more to the point, her -- place? It's that sad old chorus, the scared white dudes. With Joe on vacation, Abe looks listens to the plaintive distress call of the endangered patriarch.
