I was fortunate to be able to discuss the post-election GOP civil war with Mike Papantonio of Ring of Fire Radio recently. Here’s the first half of that interview:
The reference post is here — “Shut down” Limbaugh and Trump, GOP’s Steve Schmidt tells “party leaders” — but that’s just the launch point.
Mike’s question — can 10 billionaires run a party (and by extension, run a country) — was answered in the second half of the interview. Great question. Short answer: Yes, in my opinion. Subscribers to Ring Of Fire can get the full interview. (It’s a worthy subscription, by the way; this is one of the best progressive broadcasts in the country, has been since Air America days, and like all good progressive media, richly deserves your support.)
