Sen. Angus King (I-ME) suggests he may caucus with Republicans if they win control of the Senate. No word on whether he understands what that means any better now than he did when he said it in 2012. Greg Dworkin joins us to discuss that, House Gop rumblings against Boehner (again), and wider conservative rumblings against Jeb Bush. He briefly touches on new discoveries in the Christie whitewash report that I've been meaning to get to before falling victim to yet more tech troubles. (We'll return to that in the future!) We do finally get to an expansive look at the provocatively titled "Meet The Google Engineer And Occupy Wall Street Organizer Who Wants Silicon Valley To Run The Country," though. Also, a piece from David Sirota, noting a growing trend in corporate-owned media, this time in the purchase of the Anchorage Daily News. Can we tie all that together? You bet! Especially if there's no one around to tell us we can't or didn't!
