4/2 Sam Returns: Digby Brings Him Up To Speed

April 2, 2013

Blogger, Digby explained why the Republicans might not be able to reform on social issues, why Republicans will not reform on their economic extremism, why Democrats are reactive and Republicans are strategic in shaping frameworks, the Sequester is starting to hurt lots of people and why the “grand bargain” is politically and morally absurd.

On The Better Half: Google celebrates Ceaser Chavez, right-wingers get upset, Bill O’Reilly tempers himself on marriage equality and the right wing grass roots is enraged, Georgia town makes it mandatory to carry guns and your IMs.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
