BUT CENK! IF YOU ARE SAD ENOUGH TO GOOGLE YOURSELF AS I DO, PLEASE MAKE YOUR TERRIFIC VIDEOS EMBEDDABLE! AND DON'T CUT RIGHT TO MATT TAIBBI--YOUR OWN ANALYSIS AT THE TOP OF THE SHOW WAS FASCINATING! And I realize that you are straight and you're going to make sports references etc. I agree to tolerate those while baffled by them. But take it from a queen--your new set's brick motif is vile! VILE!

I like Cenk Ugyur's statement tonight that everyone is telling him not to bash Obama because that might help republicans win. But why help Obama win if he's practically a republican himself? Obama just nominated a republican executive from the Carlyle Group to the Fed's Board of Governors. Remember he Carlyle Group? The company that the Bush family and there Bin Laden family were partners in? Remember how Bush, Sr. and Osama's brother were together watching the 9/11 attacks. From Wiki: "In the documentary film Fahrenheit 911, Michael Moore makes nine allegations concerning the Carlyle Group, including: That the Bin Laden and Bush families were both connected to the Group; that following the attacks on September 11, the bin Laden family’s investments in the Carlyle Group became an embarrassment to the Carlyle Group and the family was forced to liquidate their assets with the firm; that the Carlyle group was, in essence, the 11th largest defense contractor in the United States.[35] Moore focused on Carlyle's connections with George H. W. Bush and his Secretary of State James A. Baker III, both of whom had at times served as advisors to the firm." DO YOU SEE A PATTERN HERE? Why would Obama nominate a corporate, republican war-monger to do anything unless that's what Obama himself is? The Carlyle Group is not only the 3rd largest private equity firm on earth but also a huge military contractor. Wonder who we're getting ready to attack?


Cenk talks with “Rolling Stone” contributing editor Matt Taibbi about his new piece on the Obama administration’s lack of prosecutions for white collar crime. “If they pushed all these prosecutions, investors worldwide would see how epidemic corruption is on Wall Street,” Taibbi says. “They’re afraid of what the international reaction would be.” Cenk says while he doesn’t think President Obama is personally corrupt, “It’s the system that corrupts all these politicians.”
