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

The conventions are over, and Congress returns to DC from August recess. In a joint polling & issues review with Greg Dworkin and Steve Singiser, we looked at post-convenion bounces, shifts in the polling, and the emerging "Obama leads" media narrative. On the Congressional front, it's more of the same, with small bore nonsense filling in the space around yet another continuing resolution to keep the government operating in the absence of any ability to fund it under regular order.

Kagro in the Morning - August 28, 2012

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.

Daily Kos Contributing Editor David Waldman (Twitter: @KagroX) hosted Daily Kos colleagues DemFromCT (Greg Dworkin), DarkSyde (Steven Andrew) and Steve Singiser to discuss the latest national polling and issues, the approach of Hurricane Isaac both to Tampa and perhaps more directly to New Orleans, and the Akin impact on the Republican National Convention. Plus we note the irony in the residents of Akin's hometown looking to the government for assistance now that their wells have run dry from drought.
