Show Blog. Day 2. It’s even earlier. If you want to see Times Square deserted come into NYC around 7:15am. It’s probably as close to empty as it gets.
Glenn ran a little late but the meeting eventually starts around 7:40am. Stu, Pat, Jeffy, Joe, Dan, Joel, and Tiffany are in attendance. And Glenn, of course.
What notes did Glenn give?
How many attempted and successful assassinations have been committed by people hoping to end the republic? What was the rhetoric when Abraham Lincoln was killed? The rest? Political bombings. Riots throughout the 20th century. How many assassins or would-be assassins loved the Constitution? Only one person that Glenn can think of in one hundred years fits the picture of the “dangerous crazy person with a professed love for the Constitution”, who is it?
Why does this matter? Political debate and heated rhetoric has been part of our country since its founding. Who was one of the first bloggers? Thomas Paine. The Founders knew free speech needed to be protected. Glenn will have some of the most outrageous language spoken in Congress. How does recent outrageous political language tie into the rancher/herd theory?
What does change mean? How does it relate to focus groups, teleprompters?
Why is it important to be challenged? If you aren’t challenged in what you believe in, how do you grow and stay strong?
What is the “Your name is mud” story?
What does Glenn think of the changing of the “job killing” bill?
Yesterday, Glenn was on The Today Show talking about a book that will help change the individual. No politics. But the hosts just wanted to ask about something he said years ago. On the same day, Rep. Steve Cohen compared Republicans to Goebbels.
