Please tune in (or listen via Internet) if you can. This a lively, fascinating and important topic.
The Republican Party is undergoing a cadre coup (or "hostile takeover" in corp-speak) by Americans for Prosperity–financed candidates, similar to the coup that was run by the Kochs against the Cato Institute.
I've written about the Koch coup here:
GOP is a party of WASPs led by 70-year-old impotent white guys — This link takes you midway through, to the Koch part of the post.
Norquist on Romney: "Pick a Republican with enough working digits" to sign the Ryan budget — Norquist was a featured speaker at AFP's "Defending the American Dream Summit" in 2011, and unlike David Frum or Steve Schmidt, is fully on the AFP bandwagon.
Our discussion will expand on those thoughts. Papantonio has an excellent understanding of what we're seeing; I'm really looking forward to the conversation.
