GOP Failure in Alabama & Howard Zinn about The Southern Influence on National Politics

Last night, Democrat Doug Jones won U.S. Senate seat in Alabama against GOP candidate Roy Moore. In the first part of today’s show we comment this outcome with Adele M. Stan, columnist for The American Prospect Magazine, and Geoffrey M. Kabaservice, author of Rule and Ruin: The Downfall of Moderation and the Destruction of the Republican Party, From Eisenhower to the Tea Party.

 

Then, we are broadcasting extended excerpts of historic Howard Zinn‘s speech The Southern Influence on National Politics.
