It’s Post-Election Gloating Special tonight on “The David Goldstein Show” on Newsradio 710-KIRO, from 7PM to 10PM.
7PM: How will the Democratic Party ever survive those crazy “nutroots”…? Democrats won big, big, BIG on Tuesday, retaking both the US House and Senate. And while some people say same of the credit should go to us bloggers and internet activists, others say us crazy, far-left, whacked-out “nutroots” are going to be the death of Democratic Party. Joan McCarter, better known as frontpage blogger McJoan on that crazy, far-left, whacked-out blog Daily Kos joins me to give her perspective on Tuesday’s election and the role of the netroots now and in the future. Oh.. and she’ll also do some gloating.
8PM: Still want to move to Canada? Tuesday was only a start, and I’m pretty damn sure we’ll take a couple of steps backwards on our way to a true progressive majority. Bill Scher of the blog Liberal Oasis is in town promoting his new book “Wait! Don’t Move to Canada!“, and he’ll be joining me in the studio to argue for his “stay-and-fight strategy to win back America.” And of course, we’ll do some gloating as well.
9PM: What’s the matter with Washington? As big an ass-whooping as the Democrats delivered nationally, that’s nothing compared to the clean-sweep in statewide and legislative races, where the Dems took near super-majorities in both houses. Progressive Majority of Washington’s Dean Nielsen will call in at the top of the hour to give us an update on the legislative races, and former Republican state Rep. Toby Nixon will join me in the studio for the entire hour to talk about what led to his party’s stunning defeat (including his own) and what he expects from the fattened Democratic majority in Olympia. Will Democrats overreach? Will they be too timid? Toby will tell us. (And since Toby is such a stand-up guy, I’ll try not to do too much gloating.
Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).
