Independents Rising, Merchants of Dispair
Chuck & Patrick discuss Chuck's contention that Obama will try to raise taxes in a second term which Patrick calling this "propaganda."

They interview Jackie Salit, political independent organizer and author of Independents Rising. Chuck accuses Jackie and her group of being shills for Obama.

Chuck discusses with Patrick a comment made by Democratic operative Hilary Rosen that Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life."

Chuck and Patrick interview Robert Zubrin, author of Merchants of Dispair who traces the role of the idea of scarcity through the progressive movement starting with Thomas Malthus, the father of population control, to Darwin's survival of the fittest, to Eugenics, to the Nazi and Communist progressive political experiments and to the present time with global warming, environmentalism and the rest.

Patrick, who clearly did not read the book, tried to denounce Zubrin by focusing on one footnote in which Zubrin sited an article by a researcher who later changed her opinion. Patrick presented this as evidence that Zubrin's book was not honest, that his scholarship was questionable and that therefore the thesis which he presented should be ignored and rejected.

Chuck contended that Patrick tried to change the subject by trying to discredit the author instead of discussing his thesis which appeared to make him uncomfortable.
