12/14 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Janeane Garofalo

December 14, 2012

Cliff wants to know why did Obama pick Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense? Hagel’s positive record on Iraq, HSBC launders hundreds of millions of dollars in drug cartel money and will not be prosecuted, why Cliff and Sam are cautiously optimistic about the fiscal cliff, Sam and Cliff discuss the heartbreaking tragedy in CT and call the NRA a domestic terrorist group.

And it seems like old times! Janeane Garoflo live in studio! Janeane calls Sam out on his mixed metaphors, recommends the Kings Speech and Sam has a big announcement! he is having a son! Janeane gave Sam’s kids awesome gifts and more on the unfolding horrific tragedy in CT.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
