The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens opens the program today. Stephens received a Pulitzer for Commentary last year, and you can see why from his new book America In Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder. It Is a riveting look at the excalating “storm” of chaos around the globe, and not to be missed. Today I’ll also be talking with Mark Leibovich about his newbook Citizens of the Green Room, which is as funny as Stephens’ book is serious. Together they paint a picture of a fundamentally unserious America at just the moment the opposite is called for. Read them both. There will be a test. Lots of tests.
