Guest: Economist James Galbraith

Sam opens the show assuring us that The Majority Report will not be sponsored by a gold-shilling company or an erectile dysfunction drug unlike other political shows.  When the end-times come what would you rather have, a bar of gold or some Just Coffee? (use coupon code MAJORITY)

Congress will vote on the repeal falsely labeled “Job-Crushing” health care bill (formerly known as the “Job-Killing” bill) and Sam explains where the Republicans got this “fact” and why it is a lie.

Sean Hannity invited Sarah Palin on his show so he can lob softballs at her, giving her an opportunity to clear the “Blood Libel” controversy.  Obviously, it didn’t go so well.

The Battle Hymn of Sarah Palin – Yikes.
