AlterNet Radio: Former GOP Staffer Says His Party's Gone Nuts; Tomasky: Is Obama Headed for a Landslide Win?; Labor Starting to Fight
This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, Joshua Holland talks to Mike Lofgren, the veteran Republican congressional staffer who quit after realizing that religious fundamentalism had left his party incapable of governing. Lofgren wrote a book about his experiences called, The Party's Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless and the Middle Class Got Shafted.
Then Mike Tomasky, a columnist with the Daily Beast, joins us to discuss two of his recent pieces: "Michael Tomasky on the (Possible) Coming Obama Landslide," and "Mitt Romney's Wimp Factor."
Finally, we talk to Rick Smith, host of The Rick Smith Show, about how labor is fighting back against the Right's decades-long assault on working people.
