Hour 1: Reaction to last night’s Emmy awards. Republicans keep trying to run away from the abortion issue. Lindsey Graham proposes a very misleading abortion “compromise” bill. Ken Starr, the prosecutor in the Clinton Whitewater case, has died at the age of 76. Why aren’t Democrats fielding candidates in Wisconsin’s 6th and 8th Congressional districts?
Hour 2: Scott Jensen’s new ad uses hilarious stock footage that includes scenes from outside Minnesota. Brett Johnson speaks with Patrick Coolican, editor-in-chief of the Minnesota Reformer. They talk about Patrick’s column on how Jensen could benefit from eliminating the state income tax and the latest on the nurses strike. Praise for Laura Yuen’s column in the Star Tribune (in the variety section?) that takes down Matt Birk.
