This Week’s Topics:

–The 2009 Northampton Mayoral Debate moderated by Midweek Politics host David Pakman.

–New affiliates in Ohio, Maine, and Wisconsin.

–A bizarre email from a conservative radio station claiming that because of their rich audience, they can only play Fox content, as it is the only fair and balanced news available.

–Asking for money under the guise of Help Retarded Children may not be the most effective method.

–Tea parties and the National Equality March, and why one is organized and promoted by conservative media, while the other is barely covered.

–The increase in public weapons displays as a result of right-wing scare tactics about President Obama and taking guns away.

–Right wing terrorism, including the Holocaust museum, Dr Tiller murder, and mroe.

–A right wing militia warning to Barack Obama to leave the country by October 15th.

–A so-called ironic but truly tragic story of a woman who famously carried a loaded pistol to her daughter’s soccer game being shot to death.

–President Obama win’s the Nobel Peace Price, but why, and will it actually benefit or hurt him?

–Obama’s biggest accomplishment thus far, which may be economy-related.

–The White House specifically attacks Fox News, a move that likely has little possible upside and only possible negative consequences, and how it opens the White House up to significant criticism.

–The Senate Finance Committee approves a health care reform bill, with Olympia Snowe as the only Republican voting in favor, although the bill contains no public option, and Olympia Snow may lose political capital for having voted in favor.

–President Obama says the committee vote does get us closer to a better healthcare situation, while GOP Chairman Michael Steele insists that it’s a bad idea, while Joe Lieberman says no public option.

–A four month old baby, having never eaten anything but breast milk, is denied health insurance coverage for being too fat.

–Glenn Beck thinks non-citizens should not be included in the 2010 census.

–Rush Limbaugh’s potential NFL football team ownership is not received well by the NFL, as well as many players and owners.
