This Week’s Topics:

–Louis’ upcoming self-defense training, and a woman eating while on a treadmill.

–Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort, the inventor of the bananas is God theory of creationism, are coming out with a new introduction for Darwin’s book The Origin of Species for its anniversary publishing, which links Darwin to Hitler.

–We look at the banana theory first-hand in studio and discuss yet another comparison to Hitler.

–Muammar al-Gaddafi is in the US for the UN assembly, is not allowed to sleep in a bedouin tent in Central Park, and is blaming Israel for everything under the sun, including Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy’s assassinations, all while reading it from what looks like a speech written with charcoal on lambskin for paper.

–Hypocritical reporting on support for being in Iraq and Afghanistan from the usual suspects in the media, failing to mention that they are wars that were even more unpopular under George W. Bush, not to mention having been started by him.

–American doctors overwhelmingly support a healthcare system where a public option exists in combination with private insurance options, although you’ll be hard pressed to hear about it in most media.

–Senator Judd Gregg dismisses the poll in such a way to indicate the doctors surveys don’t even understand the healthcare system.

–A parody video by some actors and actresses related to healthcare spread virally on the internet, but apparently some Republicans didn’t get the memo that it was only a parody, and used many of the lines from the video.

–Senator Max Baucus submits a possible health care bill that neither Republicans nor many Democrats are even interested in supporting.

–Fox News, Bill O’Reilly, and Chris Wallace are upset that President Obama did not include Fox News Sunday in his round of interviews this week, even while they ran a promo asking if Obama’s healthcare plan is worse than cancer.

–CNN’s Black in America series moving to Latino in America, and how much further?

–Birther Orly Taitz continues her string of lawsuits and bizarre television interviews.

–The House votes to extend unemployment benefits even further
