Adam Serwer (Mother Jones) and Anna Holmes (Yahoo! News)

On the premiere episode of Adamize, Adam Serwer talks to Anna Holmes about the London Olympics, touching on the racial politics surrounding gymnast Gabby Douglas and the fetishization of biracial women like hurdler Lolo Jones. Adam notices that female athletes are overshadowing the male athletes this year. Pivoting to the election, Anna asks whether attempts to paint Obama as a cultural “other” will work. Adam wonders what’s in Mitt’s tax returns, and stands in awe of Harry Reid’s wild allegations about Romney’s taxes. In closing, Anna suggests that Democrats should “troll” Republicans more often.
