Matt Taibbi on the Meaningless Sideshow

January 4, 2012

Always a favorite, Matt Taibbi on the irrelevance of the Republican primary races and how grass roots discontentment shows where the real political battle lines exist.   Also, more on Ron Paul and what his popularity reflects.  Plus, the media’s hard sell on fracking, Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Pat Robertson gets a tip from God (just don’t ask him to share it).

Use this post as today’s thread.
