On today’s show we talk about Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the swing vote, the guy everybody has to please with constitutional scholar and author Ian Millhiser. Plus Robin Williams, Martin Short And Will Ryan and The Cactus County Cowboys.
In case you’re unfamiliar with Justice Kennedy, remember back in October of 2012 when Romney and Obama were courting the undecideds? Remember how annoying the undecideds were? Everyone had already made up their minds months earlier, but roughly three percent of the country claimed they just didn’t know, when in fact they wanted the attention. Well, that’s who Justice Anthony Kennedy is. He just doesn’t know. We talk with Ian Milhiser who just wrote a great piece for Think Progress entitled “Ten Reasons No One Should Lionize Justice Kennedy.” Ian Millhiser is a Senior Constitutional Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress Action Fund. And through the prism of Anthony Kennedy we’ll get to see how liberal, or just how conservative the John Roberts court is turning out to be.
Also on the show remember Rick Perry, the governor of Texas? Remember he ran for president last year and it turns out he was actually dumber than Michele Bachmann? Well, today, he’s going to announce whether or not he’s running for reelection as governor of Texas, and he also might announce whether or not he’s running for president again, even though his last campaign by all measures was a complete disaster. So, we’re running a sketch we did last year with Robin Williams playing Governor Perry, it still holds up.
And how about this? Marty Short and Will Ryan together on the same stage, how great is that?
