Common Sense with Dan Carlin is an independent look at politics and current events from popular New Media personality Dan Carlin. Carlin's self-described "Martian" viewpoints infuse each episode with a political alien's take on the world around us and the problems it faces. It's a smart, unique (and admittedly U.S.-centric) program that doesn't dumb down the information or analysis for the slowest person in the room. Carlin's rapid-fire staccato voice has been compared to William Shatner after too many espressos. That, plus his penchant for making everyone in the audience mad at him eventually, makes for a witch's brew of a podcast that is not for everyone. But for those craving a deeper intellectual analysis, a less partisan approach and unpredictable outside-the-box revelations, Common Sense with Dan Carlin is a feast for the mind.

Greg Dworkin helps us pore over all the results of The Big Game, by which we mean the elections, of course. Everything from the seemingly endless torrent of polling, to debate analysis, to the numerous and varied intra-party fights, to the traditional wringing of the hands. After a brief detour into the Authentic Frontier Gibberish of the sOvErEiGn CiTiZeNs MoVeMeNt, Ian Reifowitz joined us to discuss his Sunday Kos piece on the fight over the “progressive” label, and how far we’ve come since the days when “liberal” was a dirty word.

The Bill Show: Politics This Week/ thebillshow.net
Bill and Randy sort out the coin tosses in Iowa as the establishment media goes batshit in response to the caucuses. We listen to classic comedy from the News Hour’s David Brooks. We discuss Hillary getting all precious about being a progressive. We look at the record. We listen to a story told by Liz Warren about Hillary from 2004 when she had a chance to vote against Wall Street. 10 guesses how that one ended. We listen to Cenk Uger from the Young Turks as he responds to Howard Kurtz and the mainstream media. Brilliant. We ask why no one from birther movement is concerned about Ted Cruz’s Canadian past…(could the difference be that Cruz isn’t black?) We serve up Tin Foil hats and tons of comedy and political clips from the last two weeks on the campaign trail. Hop aboard the bus to Hartford!!
This week the boys talk about race, the presidential election, and assholes who don’t want your kids to be educated… about sex. Michael has a great list of important black inventors when he rudely gets interrupted by Brad’s racism and Eric drops a podcast altering bomb at the very end (yes that means you have to listen to the whole show).

Is it “PING!” or is it “DING!”? David Waldman welcomes both sides of the debate for the KITM Friday Weekend Sendoff: Greg Dworkin saw last night’s Democratic debate, as well as Wednesday’s forum and loved them both. Both threw great punches, and stayed substantive as usual, and we all won. Both candidates are winners in the polls as well, depending on where you look, and what you are looking for. Where do Americans look for news, anyhow? More are winning in the US economy as today’s job numbers show. Is it now time to debate and dream of possible VPs? It is now time to lust after Tesla’s new product, The Powerwall. If you just want to eat your vegetables, but don’t want to cut back on calories, McDonald’s can help. David explores a puff piece on the meanest, ruthless, most remorseless clone of Karl Rove that ever pretended to be tough.

The child of Haitian-born parents, Fugees co-founder Pras Michél has always felt an affinity for the Caribbean nation and the long-suffering Haitian people. After a devastating earthquake hit Haiti in 2010 and the government seemed incapable of or uninterested in helping ease the people’s plight, Pras helped recruit hugely popular musician Michel Martelly, a.k.a. “Sweet Micky,” to run for president. Martelly’s successful campaign is documented in the new film “Sweet Micky For President” (http://www.sweetmickyforpresident.com) In this wide-ranging interview with The Young Turks’ Jayar Jackson, Pras talks about: - The role of protests in a democratic society - How the Arab Spring and other movements abroad may finally be coming to the United States - What was different about the University of Missouri football team’s protest - and why it succeeded - How the LA Clippers could have made more of an impact to protest against owner Donald Sterling’s racist comments - Whether health care s ...
Tune in today, and get your fill of David Waldman and KITM, with weather and traffic on the nines: Remember Iowa? Greg Dworkin is here to bring data and analysis to those disgruntled and those completely gruntled on the caucus process. Going into New Hampshire, the polls are pretty stable. Bernie Sanders leads big among independents, but the problem is they might independently vote Republican in the future. Will class eventually become the deal breaker for voters? Meanwhile, Trump throws a fit, Christie throws a fit, and the Bernie/Hillary camps throw a fit. Here is the rant of Al Giordano on being someone else's idea of a progressive. KITM Michigan Correspondent Rosalind MacGregor corresponds from Michigan: Detroit Public Schools emergency manager Darnell Earley, facing an onslaught of criticism over dilapidated schools and his role in the Flint water crisis, quits. 87 cases of Legionella bacteria in the Flint area, and neighbors of Flint are showing tainted water, while state wor ...

Bernie and Donald - this isn't normal. The district and the media should take note. Hillary and her ability to get D.C. working again. Polls in Iowa off 10 points, Trump and the media still point to them. Lindsey Graham wants his money back.
Gary Younge says Donald Trump is not a uniquely American phenomenon, but part of a broader Western European phenomenon of white, nativist responses to globalization, immigration and terrorism. Joan Walsh analyzes the Republicans after Trump’s second-place finish—as the party establishment has a chance to reassert itself, John Nichols explains how Bernie went from 50 points behind to tie Hillary in Iowa—and what she is doing to change course. And, as the Superbowl approaches, David Zirin has some unkind words about the NFL’s claims that its “Head Health Initiative” has reduced concussions.
David Waldman sends get well wishes to Joan McCarter, and looks forward to her visit next Wednesday! House Republicans celebrated Groundhog Day reliving their failure of repealing Obamacare. Breitbart.com National Security Editor Dr. Sebastian Gorka was arrested trying to board a flight at Reagan National Airport with a 9mm handgun. Gorka learned nothing from WorldNetDaily Joseph F. Farah’s dumber than dumb mistake. More than 250 gunFAILs this year, by the way. Texas open carriers have gotten their way, are still not satisfied, and bring their case before Walmart greeters. Greg Dworkin joins us all in congratulating the bearer of the longest held erection known to science. So, what got Iowans most excited this week? Greg leads us through the polls and the pundits. Before we finally leave Iowa, one more look at the pros and cons of the caucus, what the expert hindsight tells us, and what the pundits aren’t telling us.

Democracy alive and well in Iowa, complete with coin tosses and a .3% victory. Trump loss proves the polls wrong. How many voters can make the strict 7pm Caucus time? The GOP can't complain. Speech clips from Clinton, Trump and Cruz. Cruz: the media won't decide this election. The grassroots will. Catastrophe in Flint continues. Lead levels too high for water filters in 26 homes of 4,000.

David Waldman is sick of hearing “Happy Holidays” — it’s “Happy Groundhog Day”, people! Greg Dworkin and Armando co-host today’s KITM as David braves snow-ravaged Virginia streets to take his kids to school. Today they and David pore over the data coming in from Iowa, comparing it to previous rounds in the past. How did ideology, loyalty, independence of the voters, and the locations and experience of Clinton and Sanders operatives factor into the results? And what sort of responsible speculation can be made for the upcoming New Hampshire primary? The pollsters kind of missed how Cruz and Clinton were going to win, but they told you this was hard stuff to do. People decided to vote for Cruz and Rubio at the last minute, pollsters guess. Rick Santorum would have increased his turnout by 100% if only the voting pen didn’t run out of ink. David takes a big look at the Daily Kos article ”How to really make America great again: Get rid of 'the dumbest idea in the world'”, which addresse ...

Bernie has killed the Super Pac, becoming a serious candidate without one. Trump has killed the Super Pac, being a reality TV star of aggressive, absurd entertainment. Hillary wraps up Iowa campaigning touting the strengthening economy. 30% of Iowans make up their minds in the final days of January, but we're still addicted to the polls. Rick Santorum has proven polls incorrect, still mocked and written off at the Fox debate. In honor of Black History Month, Fox News guest says African Americans are "slavish" in their support of Democrats.
Listen as David Waldman battles nature, school delays, and mic levels in today’s installment of KITM! Greg Dworkin sifts through mounds of data and poll results as we go into the Iowa Caucus: Donald Trump may pick up the Gop side, Hillary Clinton the Democratic, but the race is so tight that results will depend on how well the voters are being turned out. Enthusiasm and persuadabilty metrics are interesting as are race, ethnicity, class, and age gaps, but why does it have to be Iowa? Sanders and Clinton are reshaping their coalitions in interesting ways as they compete for the nomination, while Republican candidates ask “What would Jeff Sessions do?” Armando hops behind the KITM microphone for a while as David is called away and discusses the Iowa Caucus, its importance, and why that importance should be shared in the future.
