Glenn Loury (Brown University) and Ann Althouse (Althouse, University of Wisconsin Law School)

On The Glenn Show, Ann and Glenn look back on 2012—but wait, is all this year-in-review stuff a waste of time? They discuss what the election was really about, and the inherently non-rational aspect of politics. Ann sermonizes on the response to the Newtown shooting. Glenn insists that the children killed in Newtown and young people killed as a result of drug violence in Chicago are equally innocent victims. Has the press given Obama a pass on Benghazi and drone strikes? Finally, Glenn endorses Quentin Tarantino’s controversial new movie, Django Unchained.
