Another "encore performance" from this time last year. Greg Dworkin rounds up the early summer presidential polling, and talks about why Rassmussen's so weird. Topics of the day: Romney's vacation (and his review of the local lemonade--remember "lemon, wet, good"?); Romney's response to the ACA ruling; the mental gymnastics of anti-tax activists; Romney's offshore tax havens; conservatives and the prosperity gospel; Romney as gaffe machine; the myth of the wealthy "job creator" and carried interest. Armando called in to talk over some of the long-range plans for Daily Kos Radio (not all of which have come to pass). We wrapped up with stories about super-jerk former Reps. Joe Walsh and Thad McCotter and still super-jerk Rep. Bill Young.
