On this week's podcast, we examine the austerity battles in Greece, break down the latest stage of the Iran nuclear talks, and get a real world account of what happens when Congress cuts off your access to food. Plus, the Daily Caller's Tucker Carlson is a huge Grateful Dead fan.
Shrum and Christie discuss whether John Kasich got overshadowed this week and if the GOP has "crazies" in the base (McCain's word) or simply has "a crazy base." Also: Senate Republicans go off on Kerry over Iran -- was he "fleeced" or do they believe in "unicorns?"
On the happy occasion of the Huffington Post Arabi launch, I truly hope that we reach for new horizons. I hope that we build it hand in hand with our Arab audience and that with the site we open a door for communication, hope, and gripping, valuable content.
My clock is ticking. Time is close. Come judgment day, I dread becoming another statistic languishing behind bars, referred to by a hashtag on Twitter knowing that the outcome of the trial may have nothing to do with evidence but merely based on the political score settling between Qatar and Egypt.

This past weekend the noise over the Clinton State Department emails erupted again as Senate hearing dates were announced. But, ironically thanks to Donald Trump, the average American's response was, "Oh yeah, I forgot about that."
It's thoroughly obvious why this photo of Dick Cheney went absolutely viral the other day. For the left-leaning, it presents the ultimate opportunity to hate on Darth Vadar for being so callous.

What has the right-wing Media Research Center's "media research" been reduced to these days? Complaining that a story is accurately reported in the media.
A bevy of Republican candidates get shut out of national primetime by Fox, but not Trump.
On July 24, The New York Times ran a piece by Carol Pogash entitled "Berkeley Offers Safety Guidance On Carrying Phones." It left little to the imagination regarding where The Times stands (and has always stood) regarding the potential threat to health caused by the microwave radiation emitted by cell phones.
Election Day is 400-plus days away. Can the New York Times' Clinton coverage be salvaged, or is the paper no longer an honest player?
The moral of the social media story is: stay conscientious, my friends. You never know what may come of an impromptu share.
