Senate Democrats after just one day are reversing themselves. According to the AP, Senate Democrats are planning to seat Roland Burris in the Senate, when only yesterday they rejected his credentials and blocked his entrance to the chamber. This was predicted by Jeff in last Monday’s episode of PoliTalk – The Weekly Political Podcast. Listen in to PoliTalk to know things BEFORE they happen.

Most people ease into the new year. At PoliTalk, we jump right into it. From the legality and ethics of the Burris Senate appointment, to the wisdom of the Richardson and Panetta nods to the morality of war in Gaza, there isn’t an issue that Glenn and Jeff aren’t afraid to tackle. But unlike the screaming theater that is pretty much every other political talk show, Glenn and Jeff offer up their brand of talk in a genuine, irreverent even humble manner. Rather than the next breed of political talk show, they’re more like the “Car Talk” of Politics.  Tune in and then spread the word. Welcome to the next generation of political talk: PoliTalk.

An Iraqi reporter hurled a shoe at George Bush in a fit of frustration, while Jeff and Glenn hurl all they’ve got at the Washington Elite in the 18th Episode of PoliTalk. Unlike the Iraqi, however, the PoliTalk guys hit their mark this week: Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich for his outlandish fraud; Caroline Kennedy for her lack of credentials (does it really matter); the “Big 3” car companies for ponying up to the trough, and the politicians for filling it; Bernie Maddoff for his unbelievable, unscrupulous $50 billion ponzi scheme that hurt countless innocent people, and the makers of really bad television for leaving Glenn and Jeff off the political talk circuit for yet another week.  Get your real political analysis here at PoliTalk.
