Daily Kos presents Daily Kos Radio. Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by Contributing Editor David Waldman

David Waldman covers a yuge amount of topics classier than anyone, except when you add Greg Dworkin, which adds more class:

RIP Cecil.  And Tom Brady’s phone.


Taliban Leader Mullah Omar still dead.


Donald Trump loved by Hispanics! Trump rockets!  Hillary wounded! (Not “factually”.)


Facts also intrude on Obamacare narrative.


Donald Trump wounds the conservative media


That’s why Rubio campaign stays on the down-low.


Joan McCarter, the classiest.


What about Cheesesteak?  Good and bad political Fair Food.


Boehner wins - House set to pass highway bill.  


The Cruz Rebellion.  The Boehner Coup.  Oklahoma keeps it classy.

What do you bet?

David Waldman reminds us:  Do not confuse correlation with causation.


Greg Dworkin calls in with the Headline Round-up. How Trump’s success is linked to the disaffection of voters. In the midst of sturm und drang, the candidates pair up. Who has The Big Mo, who does not? Mike Huckabee: Uniter.


Iran nuclear deal polls seem to contradict, why is that?


We visit the latest Trumpster Fire. Trump faces new and old questions. How Nixonian.

Ted is taken to school. Kagro in the Morning digs into the nitty gritty of what Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are in for.


Thanks again to Scott Anderson for today's summary!

David talks about the New Yorker cover, and the positive, and negative it promotes.

Greg Dworkin discusses the complicated 2016 race, candidate polls (and how 2016 is unique) , the Iran Deal polling, and how €œDumpster Fires€ attract the media on the run up to the caucuses and debates.

David goes into intricate analysis of the Congressional Review Act, the upcoming GOP gambit to resurrect the repeal of Obamacare, what concepts would be considered germane, and the process and probability of the Nuclear Option.

Chris Christie invites random guy to run for president so he can debate him.

Greg Dworkin rounds up the headlines. Trump is as Trump does. And, if the GOP doesn’t like that and wants to be very foolish.... Just because the majority has an opinion, does that mean they will vote that way? Or will they stick with their America? Sandra Bland: Assessing the legality of her arrest. Are the police issuing you a lawful order, or an order under color of law? Officer has to explain his son playing cop. Update on when playing cop leads to tragedy.

Money makes the world go ‘round. So, if you have some, think about how you can help. (And remember to scroll down to find those donation buttons, where necessary!) Greg Dworkin reminds lawmakers going on break that the public is for the Iran Deal, but even the GOP is split on immigration. Is there enough room in the clown car for another? Can he be a contender? Sandra Bland’s death is being treated like a murder investigation. Did Sanders and O’Malley fail the test? What can Bernie do now? Hillary Clinton needs to earn the Black Vote. Is the GOP just Trump-Trumpity-Trump? And for how long?

Greg Dworkin takes a look at the GOP today, which is Trump, no matter who says different.  Other candidates stick it out, because they’d be idiots not to. The Democrats can win the Iran Debate, and many other debates too.

A review of Netroots Nation 15.  Which has many points of view, but could always use better listeners.

And a note from Scott Anderson, because I didn't say anything: Anniversary of the Women's Rights Convention!

The Big Event: Netroots Nation Present & Future.

Another mass shooting. No one is sure why. Some know nothing at all.

Greg Dworkin introduces us to the newest GOP soap opera. Trump is #1! But why? Is it "respect"? Not a lot of GOP respect from Latinos, though.

Minorities and young stick with Obama. If Hillary's terrible luck holds out, she'll end up president.

A guy thinks gluing a gun to someone's hand would be provocative.

Guess who is the top tax evader in Greece.

A look at the madness surrounding the confederate flag, the division continuing to today.

In today's news: a handful of wacky Oklahomans greet the president with Confederate flags; by our #GunFAIL count, a 3-year-old Kansas City girl is the 49th child under 15 accidentally shot to death this year, the 250th child accidentally shot overall, and the 450th to accidentally shoot themselves. Greg Dworkin rounds up still more Pluto news, Bernie polling, the president's Iran presser, and procedure for the deal going forward. Big government haters' favorite university lives, indirectly, on big government money. LePage's veto gambit explained. That flag will cause more problems in Congress. Anybody can get outflanked and be called a sellout, if you're annoying enough.
