Glenn Loury (Brown University) and Glenn Loury II (Just a Bloody Blog)

The Glenn Show once again lives up to its name with another father-son conversation about politics and religion. Glenn the son criticizes his father for having doubted Obama’s reelection. Glenn the father is troubled by the sharp splits in voting patterns along class and ethnic lines. The two argue over whether Obama or Romney ran the more negative campaign. The son objects to post-election grumbling on the right that he thinks smacks of racism. Can the GOP recover? They end with some talk about religion. Glenn the father expresses doubt about his religious doubt. He asks his son to come to church and see for himself what goes on there, but his son respectfully declines to do so.
