Friday's show. Denise Young and Anne Calos from the Union Sun & Journal stop by and get some interesting phone calls. It's always fun to have Anne and Denise on cause it's the rare occasion when I can play the role of the good guy. :) For the daily podcast, just check the link on the left hand side of the web page (it says "Podcast").

Social Security Tax May Mean More Money. No kidding. And the sun rising may mean more sunlight. Moral of this story, we need to raise the $90,000 cap on Social Security benefits or lower the payments that are made to millionaires. Social Security is not meant to be an investment ... it's meant to be insurance. I'll say it even if my party won't.

Tim Graham on White House Press Corps. Somehow this guy tries to compare Jeff Gannon - the Republican shill - with Wolfe Blitzer and Sam Donaldson ... saying they were shill's for Clinton. Of course, the analogy doesn't work becuase WOLFE BLITZER AND SAM DONALDON ARE ACTUALLY JOURNALISTS!!! Not "fake journalists" created for the sole purpose of making the president look smarter than he really is.

O'Reilly: "No lies have been told (by me) about anyone ... " And yet Media Matters finds several. Hmm.
