Good Listening

If you don't listen to Sam Seder's Majority report, you're doing it wrong.

His interview with Tim Wise yesterday was great, because Tim Wise is awesome and should be listed to at all times.

His argument against Ron Paul's foreign policy stances being helpful in the debate is the probably best articulation of that position I've heard, and a good counter to the Glenn Greenwald article I posted a few weeks back. His point about the tone of criticism against Obama is interesting, and something worth struggling with, although I'm not 100% sure I agree with his conclusion.

Also his point (that I've heard him argue a lot before, but it doesn't make it any less true) on the role that racial resentment plays in the ability to defend and expand our social safety net is dead on, and very important if you haven't heard it yet.

Anyhow, listen to it, really good stuff.
