Kagro in the Morning - November 20, 2015

You won’t be able to hear David Waldman’s Kagro in the Morning live today, because it is no longer morning and so today’s broadcast has ended. But — hit the link above and it is just as good!

Greg Dworkin brings us the horse race in progress: Donald Trump manages to stay in the presidential race by, well, leading the polls. Ted Cruz is climbing — quicker than Marco Rubio, with Ben Carson dropping. Predictions still estimate Rubio in good shape. Bernie Sanders reaches a new high, which may get him NH, maybe not IA.

The French president promises to get tougher if re-elected. Trump promises to be so fascist it’ll make your head spin. Kelly Ayotte finds she can’t get conservative enough

Greg & David return to David & Armando’s discussion of what is fair game to “mock” in political discussions. Here are more thoughts for liberals and conservatives about Syrian refugees. An award-winning marine's response to the Syrian refugee crisis is required reading. Can Cruz beat Carson with evangelicals?

Jihadists attack a hotel in Mali. Mitt Romney said Mali earlier. David did too.

Armando talks about the legal side of the Castle Doctrine — how it’s abused, will be abused, and is a bad deal even for the NRA

A Syrian family rejected by Indiana is welcomed in Connecticut. This hospitality does not show up in Virginia. Ted Cruz used to like Syrian refugees. David Vitter steps on his wife again, which isn’t even his usual fetish.

Paul Ryan returns the house to the usual disorder.

You can listen to next Monday’s Hopping Mad with Will McLeod and Arliss Bunny live at 8AM Eastern. Monday’s show will be an interview with Iraq expert Landon Schroder!
