AlterNet Radio: The GOP's Lipstick-on-a-Pig Project; Religious Right Infiltrating Our Schools; Florida Tea Partiers' Reign of Crazy

On this week's AlterNet Radio Hour, Ed Kilgore of the Washington Monthly joins us to talk about the craziness of the sequester. He also tells us why he puts little faith in Republican efforts to rebrand.

Then we speak with K.C. Boyd, author of Being Christian: A Novel, about her new piece, "How the Religious Right Is Helping De-Educate America's Youth."
