–Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-MD) sits down with us to discuss the upcoming election, racism in campaigns, and much more.

–We discuss the Rick Sanchez firing, listen to the segment from Sirius radio where Rick calls Jon Stewart a bigot and implies CNN and other media outlets are controlled by Jews, and discuss the implications and history of Jewish conspiracy theories.

–We finally give away the iPad and the winner is…listen to find out.

–An incredibly racist CSPAN caller on their Republicans line refers to the anchor as “colored” and asks why African-Americans don’t simply thank white people for what they’ve done for them.

–Gretchen Carlson’s greatest hits on Fox News include equating acknowledgment of homosexuality to “going off the rails,” and equating her job to the President of the United States, and now she says it is scary how many people consider Jon Stewart real news. We look at the obvious flaws in her theory and discuss a survey which found Daily Show viewers are far more informed and educated than Bill O’Reilly’s audience.

–Sharron Angle now suggests that some US cities are under Sharia Law, and also gets caught on audio recordings released by the Las Vegas Sun reporter Jon Ralston trying to convince her Republican opponent to exit the race in exchange for political favors.

–Senator Jim Demint, supporter of several Tea Party candidates, confirms his belief that homosexuals and unmarried pregnant women should not be allowed to teach public school because of the implied endorsement from the government that might be suggested, and we wonder if the same logic could apply to speeding.

–After asking Shirley Phelps-Roper from the Westboro Baptist Church about her infrequent blinking during television interviews a few weeks ago, several audience members email David to indicate that Shirley has been seen wearing dark sunglasses at several recent interviews, and we wonder if a nerve was struck.

–Millionaire Glenn Beck pretends he would share the pain of spending cuts, possibly loosing his home or job, and we believe he is experience PMS, Poor Me Syndrome.

–John McCain gets into an angry exchange with a reporter about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

–Bill Donohue lives in opposite world, claiming no organization has less of a problem with sexual abuse than the Catholic Church, and we wonder whether even NAMBLA has less of a problem with sexual abuse than the Catholic Church.

–A new study by the Pew Research Center finds that atheists and agnostics know the most about world religion, and David and Louis both take a world religions quiz, including a discussion of the implications.

–A voicemail in support of Rick Sanchez, emails about our interview with Cenk Uygur from The Young Turks, David’s comments about Stephen Colbert, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the UN, and more.

–On the Members Podcast this week: David’s personal story of an anti-Semitic encounter, Louis and his 9/11 conspiracy theory, an Emergency Bra that doubles as a gas mask, much more.
