AlterNet Radio: How We Destroyed Iraqi Society; GOP Rebranding -- Lipstick on a Pig?

This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, syndicated columnist Tina Dupuy talks to Joshua Holland about efforts to rebrand the GOP after Republicans' fourth popular vote loss in the past five presidential elections.


Then we're joined by Raed Jarrar, who was on the receiving end of the American "shock and awe" attack on Baghdad. Jarrar explains why he won't be returning to Iraq as he had hoped to ten years ago.

Finally, we speak with Isaiah Poole, a fellow at Campaign for America's Future, about the Ryan Roadmap and the Congressional Progressive Caucus' "Back to Work" budget -- two starkly different visions for the country's future.

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 4 pm EST at 1480 AM. If you're anywhere else, you can stream it live at  We Act Radio, and if you miss it, check back later for a podcast.
