This Week’s Topics:

–Terry Jones from Dove World Outreach Center joins us live to discuss why his church plans to burn Korans on the upcoming 9/11 anniversary, and why all Jews, homosexuals, and Muslims are going to hell.

–Clips from David Pakman’s sit down interview with Congressman Dennis Kucinich in Cleveland, Ohio.

–Clips from David Pakman’s sit down interview with former CIGNA VP and health insurance whistleblower Wendell Potter from Cleveland, Ohio.

–Stories from producer Louis’ band’s heavy metal concert, a new column by David Pakman, and upcoming changes on Midweek Politics.

–Incredible audio and video of Tennessee GOP Gubernatorial candidate Basil Marceaux, and we wonder whether it could possibly be real, how a parody would look any different, and compare it to the Miss South Carolina answer which David Pakman presents as a monologue.

–Followup on the recent interview with Peter LaBarbera from Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, including press coverage of the interview, discussion of it on Sirius Radio’s Michaelangelo Signorile show, and emails from the audience about the interview.

–Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s fascinating analysis of why women tend to become lesbians as they get older.

–One of the most racist emails ever heard is left on the answering machine of the NAACP, and we have cleaned it up with enough bleeps to play it on the air.

–We look at Whoopi Goldberg’s long history of defending criminals, racists, and others, including Mel Gibson, Roman Polanski, Helen Thomas, and Michael Vick.

–David Brooks, from DHB Industries, is being prosecuted for a number of corruption related charges, as well as asking his veterinarian for a pill that would erase a potential witnesses’ memory for him before a potential trial. We wonder whether former Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez must have been given that same pill before his infamous testimony where he simply could not remember a thing.

–Essence Magazine hires its first non-black fashion director, and Michaela Angela Davis, their former fashion editor goes nuts. We discuss what is racist, what is reverse-racist, and more.

–Is Glenn Becks commentary about the Tides Foundation responsible for inciting Byron Williams to try to attack the group in California, and the shootout that results with California Highway Patrol?

–Last week’s poll on the political orientation of the country, a new poll on Glenn Beck and inciting attempted murder, an unintelligible voicemail, and many emails about faith healing in Oregon and Mike Huckabee discussing the “end times” with Tim Lahaye.
