I missed the second half-hour of the show (as usual), so I'll be wondering what brought on that comment for the rest of the day.

Instead of calling voter fraud fears a "Republican Fantasy", I think it should be called the "Republican Delusion", its more accurate sounding, to me. A fantasy sounds like something desirable, where a Delusion sounds like mental disability.

How is flying on an airplane now become a right? Seems to me that the airlines should have the right to exclude riders who are on the list. However, a citizen must have an enforceable right to challenge the govt for inappropriatel list management.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
