KPFK Wed. 10/29: Could McCain Win?
LISTEN TO THIS SHOW ONLINE – SUBSCRIBE TO PODCAST
Could McCain win? It’s not impossible: JOHN NICHOLS of The Nation will look at the polls and the undecided voters in the swing states. We’ll also have Your Minnesota Moment: Al Franken’s campaign to retire Senator Norm Coleman, and our new hero, El Tinklenberg, running against Michelle Bachmann for the House seat for St. Cloud — she’s the one who called for a media investigation to determine which members of Congress are “anti-American.”
Also: VOTE SUPRESSION is a key part of the Republican strategy – but in order to change the outcome in a state, the vote must be close. ANDREW GUMBEL will explain – he wrote Steal This Vote; his new piece at TheNation.com is “Protect This Election.”
And: NO on 8: JENNY PIZER of Lambda Legal Defense runs through the arguments about the initiative banning gay marriage in California. Two key facts: Prop. 8 has nothing to do with schools. Prop. 8 is about equality for all.
