Happy Hump Day from The Randi Rhodes Show on WWRL
Randi's on vacation, but her good friend Nicole Sandler is filling in today, relieveing the tension of waiting for the Supreme Court decision on healthcare, with some great guests, including:
Social rights activist and Democratic candidate for Washington State's freshly re-drawn 1st Congressional District, Darcy Burner will join Nicole today to discuss her upcoming race, as well as her impassioned keynote at Netroots Nation, on the subject of abortion. They'll also talk about the Supreme Court - and what this fall's elections could mean for women's rights.
Former and future Congressman Alan Grayson will talk with Nicole about the Supreme Court's decisions this week - including the campaign finance decision SCOTUS released on Monday and the major decision on healthcare the Court will announce tomorrow. If the Court makes their decision based on politics - instead of justice - Rep. Grayson will also have some ideas on what the next steps towards affordable American health care might be.
Finally, Robert Platshorn, author, pitchman and advocate for the Silver Tour, will come into the studio with Nicole to discuss a topic that more and more voters, from both left and right are agreeing on - the legalization of marijuana in the United States. Could marijuana help state and federal budget problems? Is one of America's two major political parties on the verge of publicly supporting legalization? We'll find out.
