Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman
Kagro in the Morning - January 12, 2016

Those of you fans of Netroots Radio’s hypnotic hold music might have been surprised by David Waldman interrupting it with a KITM show about twenty minutes in. Unfortunately because of this technical difficulty, podcast fans now get an abbreviated show today, but the regular program with Greg Dworkin and maybe even Joan McCarter should be back tomorrow! 

Politico describes the process of the Senate’s attempt to alter its long, stalled, long-stalled, appropriations process. David works to make Politico’s description more precise and accessible.

Why is our ally in the Middle East more Saud-ish, and less Iranian? Which unpalatable alliance would be a better one for US interests?

As far as Sarah Palin is concerned, when it comes to child support, its Bristol’s baby, the father’s maybe.
