“Rawhide Down” and “Righteous Indignation”
On today’s program I will provide a report on the Tea Party’s Sacramento rally Saturday as well as review the numbers from first quarter fund-raising reports (how are the freshmen doing?), and go over the Telegraph’s report on radical Islam’s reach for power within Egypt.
Wilbur’s Rawhide Down is a riveting account of the day Ronald Reagan was shot and how close he came to dying. The book has a surprise on every page, even for a veteran of the Reagan Administration and even for someone who has read almost all of the Reagan biographies.
Andrew Breitbart is of course a new media force majeure, and Righteous Indignation not only fully lays out his theories of old media dominance and new media conquest, it is also the autobiography of a revolutionary whose plans are far advanced and gaining momentum daily.
And, of course, the latest on Trump Watch. With the budget through the House and the president’s “plan” nothing more than a campaign speech, there won’t be real news out of the gridlocked Congress until the debt ceiling looms large. It is unfortunate that the appropriators went home instead of working on the funding bill for DoD which should be sent to the Senate as soon as possible, but the appropriators continue to risk the GOP’s new majority by conducting business like it was 2005, which if it remains the approach of the Beltway elite, will lead to an election like 2006.
