Want to hear intelligent analysis? Forget the white conservative point of view on the Sunday shows and listen to solid progressives go over the issues of the day.

Tired of the same old Republican talking points and memes? Longing to hear a discussion of the week's events not framed to push the Overton Window to the right? Listen in to Virtually Speaking at 6:00 pm Pacific/9:00 pm Eastern where C&L contributers Dave Johnson & Cliff Schecter offer a counterpoint to the Sunday morning media shows. Jay Ackroyd hosts.

Tonight's subjects:

  • The return of the austerity and grand bargain narratives, including the appointment of New Democrats Chris Van Hollen, James Clyburn and Nita Lowey to the budget negotiation committee.
  • GOP in disarray. Are the Teahadists chastened, or emboldened by the loss?
  • PPACA. Particularly the tension between identifying problems and defending it from attack
  • Plus satirical commentary from Culture of Truth.

Listen live or later at Virtually Speaking at Blog Talk Radio.
