AlterNet Radio: The GOP's Slow-Motion Coup; America's Workplace Bondage; Did Mitt Bait NAACP?

We have a terrific show this week. First up is The Atlantic's James Fallows, who tells Joshua Holland that even when they stick to the rules, Republicans pay no heed to the long-standing norms that once made the institutions of our democracy function. The veteran reporter also takes political reporters to task for obscuring this reality by writing generically about Washington's "dysfunction."

Then AlterNet's own Lynn Parramore joins us to discuss her recent piece, "Fifty Shades of Capitalism: Pain and Bondage in the American Workplace." It's a provocative discussion. 

Finally, did you hear about Mitt Romney going to the NAACP convention this week? It didn't go well! Imani Gandy, better known as the Angry Black Lady, surveys the wreckage. 

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 6 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.
