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

In today's weirdest news, we took a look at the story of the arrest of four active duty soldiers in an alleged plot to assassinate President Obama, and also apparently put millions of American princesses under their spell by poisoning the Washington State apple crop. That lead to a wide-ranging exploration of the parallels between urban gangs and right-wing militias, and whether John Galt or Vito Corleone had the more realistic method of separating onesself from society.

What a show!

In news from closer to reality. The irony of Republicans rediscovering the "debt clock" at their convention, and of RNC Chair Reince Preibus noting that each family's share of the debt increase could be covered by less than two off-the-cuff Mitt Romeny bets.

And of course, Greg Dworkin joined the show for his regular polling and issues segment for the first time since David noticed Greg had shed the old DemFromCT moniker.
