Monday Night Video – Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher
April 16, 2012 1 Comment
One of the reasons that I’m so glad that Rachel Maddow’s book reminds us of the Iran-Contra affair is because it points out much that is wrong in our country concerning national security. Namely, that we allow the president to do whatever he wants, which is much of the point of Drift. I also wonder how conservatives reconcile the sainthood they have bestowed upon President Ronald Reagan with their view of Iran as an imminent threat and Reagan’s history of, you know, selling them arms.
In case you missed it, here’s Maddow and Bill Maher talking about this in Los Angeles last week.
