On the Show:

–Lee Fang, reporter at ThinkProgress, joins us to discuss the realities about Herman Cain that aren’t being discussed in the corporate media, Cain’s 9-9-9 economic “plan,” and much more.

–Sir Darryl Roberts is filling in for Louis for the second time, and we analyze the bizarre noises in the background during his first appearance, why he is called Sir Darryl, and more.

–The latest Republican debate in Las Vegas is the best yet, including Mitt Romney and Rick Perry genuinely appearing not to like each other, Michele Bachmann appearing to be wearing a straight jacket during the debate, and more.

–David agrees with Sarah Palin that Newt Gingrich looked the best in the debate.

–Mitt Romney, in explaining why Rick Perry is wrong to accuse him of hiring illegals, admits to something even worse, and then Romney tells Newt Gingrich that he got the idea for an individual mandate for healthcare in Massachusetts from Gingrich himself.

–Rick Perry is booed for going after Anderson Cooper during the debate, while Herman Cain flip flops 180 degrees within hours on the topic of negotiating with terrorists.

–While Republicans continue to claim Occupy Wall Street has no coherent message, Republican Eric Cantor brings up  “income disparity” on national television in a reasonable way, confirming OWS is having an effect.

–Occupy Wall Street protests will not be well-served by protesters going to the bathroom on police cars, like the one in a picture we discuss.

–Given the choice, would you save Sarah Palin or Michele Bachman from drowning?

–Muammar Gaddafi is dead, and we wonder what is the next step for Libya, whether this helps Obama’s re-election chances, and more.

–An audience member asks why refusing service to a political group is legal, but refusing service to a racial or ethnic group is illegal.

–Emails on whether Obama would be alive if he pushed a truly progressive agenda, half of Republicans being unable to name a single GOP candidate, using “traditional marriage” to be anti-gay, and more.

–On the Bonus Show: Listeria outbreak tracked down, why is Sir Darryl vegan, another rapture coming up to end the world, more.
