This is episode 14 of Take Back Talking Points, your place for completely inconsistent, long-winded, zero-budget progressive media which is truly independent. Today Alex and Brendon talk about the 2010 election results and do a meta-analysis of the analysis of the election by the various talking heads wired into your everyday life.
We make up for lost time, this being the first episode in quite a while, by going off on several tangents and discussing a lot of interesting issues, including:
Pin the Bailout on the Donkey – how the Republicans turned the Bush bailouts into the Obama bailouts
The Big Lie – Is blatant lying more common in politics today?
Who really won the Senate, the Democrats, the Republicans, or Corporate America?
Will the Republican win in the House lead to more legislative gridlock or less?
Does talking about fascism automatically destroy political dialogue?
Why is Hitler our moral compass?
Big money invades the election system after the Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision
Is the U.S. a nation addicted to war?
