Full Transcript

On the Show:

–Mark Potok, Director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, joins us live to discuss why some are trying to incorrectly show Jared Lee Loughner is Jewish, why violent rhetoric comes mostly from the right, how rhetoric turns to violence, and much more.

–The stochastic terrorism concept outlines the dangers of claiming there is no consequence to violent rhetoric, and outlines the convenient shield that is produced through the unpredictability of influence through the mass media.

–Arizona Republicans are resigning from their posts as a result of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, and we are confused by some claims that all elected officials and government employees should be ready and willing to take bullets at any time.

–Joe Wilson, the South Carolina Republican Congressman who embarrassingly shouted “you lie” during the last State of the Union address by Barack Obama, has his trademark phrase engraved on guns produced by the Palmetto State Armory, until the quickly realize it was not such a good idea, in what could not be a more obvious connection between political disagreements and using guns.

–A new member has some special requests to the David Pakman Show Mafia, involving North Korean music and more.

–Illinois might repeal the death penalty, and we look at why it is a good idea, who still uses the death penalty, and whether it really serves as a deterrent to crime.

–All tweets and Twitter messages related to Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, and related topics have been subpoenaed by the US government, and we wonder whether we will receive calls about our tweets, as well as discussing common myths, smears, and misconceptions about Wikileaks.

–An investigation into possible unethical or illegal use of campaign funds by failed Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is launched, and O’Donnell defends herself by trashing former staffers, pointing to false connections, and much more.

–Ted Williams, the golden voice homeless man who became a viral internet sensation, seems to be having plenty of his own problems, and we cannot understand why a television news affiliate would bother other homeless people in an unfunny segment trying to find other homeless people with good voices.

–Audience emails about Sarah Palin, the bizarre dead birds Don’t Ask Don’t Tell connection that a wingnut claims exists, mercury in corn syrup, and the military religious test.

–On the Bonus Show: Sex in space, Rhode Island boycotting talk radio, a 9 year old boy terror threat, and Louis talks about people tipping at his bar.
