The Glenn Show

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.

The DMZ
It’s the year-end DMZ holiday spectacular, with a pundit accountability review! Bill was wrong about Romney losing the nomination. Matt was wrong about the election being very close. Bill was right about the importance of Obama’s 2010 tax/stimulus deal and the lack of importance of the first presidential debate. Matt was right about Romney suffering by being out of touch with average Americans. Plus: Where do liberals and conservatives get their Christmas trees?
Dec 24, 2012 — Glenn Loury & Harold Pollack

The Glenn Show
On The Glenn Show, Glenn asks Harold whether social science can make sense of the massacre in Newtown. Harold is disturbed by the way that gun manufacturers advertise their wares and by the “fundamental unreasonableness” of many gun enthusiasts. They also debunk some pernicious myths about guns. Looking back at the election, Harold tries to cure Glenn of his political cynicism. Glenn expresses skepticism about the triumphal narrative of immigration reform. They close with a personal discussion of the generational divide over issues like same-sex marriage.

Adamize
On Adamize, Adam and Tim debate gun control in the wake of the massacre in Newtown. Tim points out that rifles are not the problem when to comes to gun violence. Adam inveighs against the (poorly named) “gun-show loophole.” Should proponents of gun control try to change hearts and minds instead of pushing new legislation? Tim argues that quickly passing legislation after a traumatic event is never a good thing. Finally, Adam explains why he detests the NRA.
