Who says public radio is boring? We spiced it up Monday by injecting the radical concept of blind justice into a debate over the federal budget deal.
Called upon to bring the Tea Party perspective to a roundtable discussion on NPR affiliate KCRW’s To the Point, I joined host Warren Olney, Mother Jones’ David Corn, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin and others. The panel was asked to consider who came out of the budget deal a winner.
The exchange began with politics-as-usual. Rubin and Corn agreed that House Speaker John Boehner had emerged as the political victor, though they parted on whether that was a good thing. I brought a different take.
