The 112th session of Congress gets underway today with Republicans sauntering into town with itchy fingers floating above their holsters like Cowboys seeking vengeance in an old western.

Ah, the spirit of America.

The Democrats don’t seem eager for a showdown, or, as Rep. Anthony Weiner put it, the Democrats are entering the new session “in the fetal position.”

Also, “The more outrageous the Republicans become, the weaker the left becomes,” Ralph Nader says “The more outrageous they become, the more the left has to accept the slightly less outrageous corporate Democrats.”

And- More Dead Fish and Birds. WTF?!?!!

That and viewer mail.

January 4th 2011:

The new No Cure For That launches, Obama’s Health Care reform is in jeopardy, more than a thousand dead birds fall from the sky, Glenn Beck predicts the end of America, AGAIN.

All of that and my interview with Code Pink and Global Exchange co-founder Medea Benjamin.

Medea Benjamin is a co-founder of both CODEPINK and the international human rights organization Global Exchange.  She has been a tireless advocate for social justice for more than 20 years. Described as "one of America’s most committed -- and most effective -- fighters for human rights" by New York Newsday, and called "one of the high profile leaders of the peace movement" by the Los Angeles Times, Medea has distinguished herself as an eloquent and energetic figure in the progressive movement.
