Podcasting Liberally

Goldy and friends speak frankly and directly on three critical topics. They begin with a bar-room-inspired analysis of Obama’s address to the joint session of Congress. A few swings get thrown at Bobby Jindal and the pursed-lipped ninnies sitting on one side of the chamber. The topic then turns to former Governor Gary Locke, who is on his way to the other Washington to have his tax returns scrutinized. Regardless of a few jabs and hooks, Goldy really does like Locke. Really! Finally, at risk of a total brawl, the panel undertakes the task of fixing Washington State’s budget problems….

Goldy was joined by Seattle P-I columnist Joel Connelly, Group News Blog publisher Jesse Wendel, Effin’ Unsound’s and Horsesass’s Carl Ballard, and The Other Side –Online’s John Wyble.

The show is 37:35, and is available here as an MP3:

    Republicans are like pyromaniacs who set a house on fire so they can put the fire out and be heroes.

    I loved how Obama’s speech forced those bastards to applaud! The best part of the show was watching them think it over first.

    Speaking of Bobby Jindal, Max Blumenthal writes in today’s Alternet:


    As the country gets acquainted with the Bayou’s boy wonder, the stranger details of Jindal’s religious or personal background remain largely unknown, even among the Republican grassroots. How many Americans know that Jindal boasted of participating in an exorcism that purged the spirit of Satan from a college girlfriend? So far, Jindal’s tale of “beating a demon” remains behind the subscription wall of New Oxford Review, an obscure Catholic magazine; only a few major blogs have seized on the story.

    No doubt he’s just sayin’.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Intersting that 3 KLOWNS with barely a pot to piss in are figuring out how to fix an $8.3 BILLION Budget Shortfall.
    I’m sure it must be lots of fun to tax & squander OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.
    Half-broke, OPM addicts fixing the Budget.
    Go figure?!

    Hey and while you are at it, fix the State Retirement Fund which was $5.1 Billion underfunded and now lost $15.6 BILLION in 15 months while projecting $6 BILLION of revenue.
    And figure out a way to hold the Investment Board accountable for putting a Defined Benefit Plan at such high risk and failing to take reasonable action to avoid the debacle.
    Can’t blame Bush for this one.
    THEY. the Democrat appointed Board, are where the buck stops.

    Report back please…I cannot stand to listen to your screechy, chalk-board scrathing voices..especially when you have some brain fart and get all excited.
    In writing please.
    Many Thanks!

    We should impose a special tax on republican assholes to cover the shortfall (BOTH of them!).
