Tonight, contributing editor to Reason Magazine & author of the new book The Age of Abundance: How Prosperity Transformed America's Politics and Culture, Brink Lindsey.
Jon begins tonight's show with two breaking news headlines. Paul Wolfowitz resigns from the World Bank. And England's Prince Harry is not being sent to Iraq because of the danger posed to his life. As Jon points out, a life that apparently matters more than the other counless Brits over in Iraq.
On to tonight's big story straight out of a Spanish soap opera in a segment called "Comey Central". Former Deputy Attorney General James Comey testified before the Senate about Gonzalez who back in 2004 hustled over to the hospital bed of former Attorney General John Ashcroft with former White House Chief of Staff Andy Card and tried to get Ashcroft to sign off on the NSA's wiretap program, even though Ashcroft previously said he would not do so since it was illegal, not to mention the fact he was heavily sedated. So, Comey, who was the acting Attorney General since Ashcroft was in the hospital, raced over there to stop them in the nick of time. Jon uses a Spanish telenovela to bring these shocking details to light by dubbing in the voices of Spanish soap opera stars.
Finally, Resident Expert John Hodgman talks with Jon about Bush's overuse of the phrase "I'm looking forward to..." and how you can tell when Bush is lying.
