Ladies and Gentlemen, yours truly – the ol’ TwoPutter – is hosting tonight’s “Nancy Nelson Show” on AM-950 KTNF, The Progressive Talk Station! The show runs from 5:00 to 6pm. So, tune in your radio today to AM-950, or listen live on your computer, here.

I’ll be talking about, and asking listeners to call in about, particularly egregious examples of Republicans behaving badly during this election cycle. In particular, I’ll be singling out Republican State Representative Mary Kiffmeyer.

Here’s the artwork that once adorned a wall at Kiffmeyer’s failed bank; I call it “Jesus At The Closing Table”:

(more details here)

I’ll also be joined by Spot from The Cucking Stool to talk about his video series “Standing on the Brink of Insurrection and Treason.” You thought GOPers were crazy? Wait’ll you here Spot discussing “Tenther” Tom Emmer’s thoughts!!!

We’ll also play “False Or False Witness!” where one lucky caller will have to correctly identify if a quote I read was actually uttered by Michele Bachmann (answer “False Witness!”) or if yours truly, the ol’ TwoPutter, simply made it up (answer “false”). The fabulous prize awarded, courtesy of show sponsor Common Good Books, is one copy of Bill Prendergast’s exceptional comic book: False Witness! The Michele Bachmann Story (Volume 3)!

So, again, tune in the radio today to AM-950, or listen live on your computer, here.

In case you missed last night’s “Minnesota Matters – Wednesday Edition” on AM-950 KTNF, you can listen to it, here! IMNSHO, it was a fascinating conversation, and I’d like to thank Toni and Colonel Joe for sharing their thoughts and answering questions!

One of the highights were both Tomi Backdahl, State Coordinator of the Minnesota Tea Party, and LTC (Ret.) Joe Repya clearly repudiating and distancing themselves from the following quotes:

_ Tom Emmer quote: “I don’t think you can call yourself a freedom-loving American and be a Democrat.” Marshall Independent, Sept 2009

_ Tim Pawlenty quote: “Children who are victims of failed personal responsibility are not my problem, nor are they the problem for our government.” — Majority Leader Tim Pawlenty, April 2001 – as quoted in the Aitkin Independent Newspaper

During the first segment, we played “False Or False Witness!” where one lucky caller (“Bill” from Mpls) correctly identified that the quote I read actually was uttered by Michele Bachmann (“Bill” answered: “False Witness!”). The fabulous prize Bill won, courtesy of show sponsor Common Good Books, was one copy of Bill Prendergast’s exceptional comic book: “False Witness! The Michele Bachmann Story (Volume 3)”!!!

The Bachmann MotorMouth Overdrive quote I read, is below the fold!

And one question we asked Toni, State Coordinator for the Minnesota Tea Party Patriots was submitted via comment here, on MPP – here’s that question!

I’d ask….

If the Tea Party guy actually realized the real Tea Partiers were protesting a tax CUT. The tea partiers were actually protesting the take over by a multi-national corporation, the British East India company. The tax cut made tea super cheap, allowing the British East India (Walmart) the ability to undercut all the American merchants.

So, I would ask the Tea Party guy if he is just as afraid of the corporate take over of America as he is of the government take over.

Thanks,
Alec

Well, thank YOU for submitting that question, Alec!!!

Also, LTC (Ret.) Joe Repya discussed his candidacy for Governor, and clarified that there is a big difference between “suspend” and “end” – and for the record, Colonel Repya has “suspended” his campaign.

So again, if you missed it, you can still listen to it, by linking here!

Al from Minneapolis won the “False Or False Witness!” game; here was the quote:

“And this is one of the very happy days that we have, when we can bring some federal money to a great project that’s been in in the works…wait….I know enough not to fight with a dump truck. He wins every time. This is one of the very happiest days that we have, when we can go ahead and add some sweetener to the pot to try and do something really good.” Michele Bachmann on August 25, 2009 bringing federal money to build more hangers and expand the airport in Paynesville

And you can watch Bachmann MotorMouth Overdrive say it – let’s look!!!

TPT, On Your Radio Today!

On September 15, 2009, in Uncategorized, by tommy

I’ve been asked to Guest Host for Mike McIntee today from 5:00 to 6:00pm on AM-950 KTNF, The Voice Of Minnesota!

Mike put in yeoman’s work over the State Fair’s 12 day run and is taking a deserved break – I’m happy to fill-in for him. Since Mike’s passion is citizen journalism, and his show is called “Quick On The Uptake”, we’re bringing in-studio Jeff Strate, Producer for the DFL’s SD42 cable access TV program, “Democratic Visions” – an all volunteer run program. Below the fold are YouTubes of the Democratic Visions program currently running on Comcast Channel 15 in Hopkins, Minnetonka, Edina, Richfield and Eden Prairie on Wednesdays at 5:30pm and Sundays at 9 pm; present and past programs are available at the Democratic Visions’ YouTube Channel.

DFL State Rep. and Gubernatorial Candidate Paul Thissen will be calling in at 5:30 pm, and at 5:45 we’ll be joined by MnProgressiveProject’s Grace Kelley to talk more about citizen journalism.

The studio call-in number is 952-946-6205; we will be giving away one copy of Bill Prendergast’s exceptional comic book: False Witness! The Michele Bachmann Story (Part 1).

So, tune in the radio today to AM-950, or listen live on your computer, here.

And go beyond the fold; there’s three YouTubes you’re not going to want to miss!

AM950 Radio owner Janet Robert talks about the success of her progressive talk radio station in a format universe that had been dominated by right wing local and national radio talk programs. Blogger Tommy Johnson joins Ms. Robert to weigh in on talk readio and the new media.

State Public Defender John Stuart talks about the challenges confronting Minnesota’s court system prompted by cuts to the number of public defenders serving the poor.

This video memoriam honors the 10th anniversary of the death of state legislator Willard Munger, Minnesota’s “Mr. Environment.” The segment features scenes from a documentary-in-progress about Mr. Munger.

This will come as no surprise, but: FactCheck.org just debunked a whole bunch of what Bachmann MotorMouth Overdrive recently claimed. Let’s look!

Q – Is ACORN providing workers for the 2010 census?

Did the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) sign on as a “national partner” with the U.S. Census Bureau to sign up over 1 million temporary workers to help with the 2010 census?

A – No. ACORN employees will not be taking the census. The group is one of more than 30,000 “partners” that will help publicize the event.

That’s the short of the most recent debunking Machmann MotorMouth Overdrive. Not that that will stop her from continuing to repeat debunked stuff; after all – she’s a republiCon.

Here’s some of the long, from FactCheck.org’s analysis:

ACORN “will be in charge of going door-to-door and collecting data from the American public,” said Rep. Michele Bachmann in mid-June. “This is very concerning.” Saying she was worried about ACORN’s supposed involvement in gathering census data, the Minnesota Republican announced that she won’t participate in the census beyond answering how many individuals reside in her household, “because,” she maintained, “the Constitution doesn’t require any information beyond that.” Actually, the Constitution, under Article 1, Section 2, simply requires that an “enumeration” be done every 10 years to apportion the members of the House, but that it be done “in such manner” as Congress “shall by law direct.” And Congress has seen fit to require everyone to answer truthfully whatever census questions they are asked, under threat of a $100 penalty for failure to answer and $500 for lying.

And Bachmann is flat wrong about ACORN going door-to-door and gathering data. Being “partners” with the Census Bureau doesn’t entail as close a relationship as one might think.

OK, Bachmann bein’ bein’ psycho-stupid and “flat out wrong” isn’t “news” to most folk reading this. What IS news, is:

Tonight, on AM-950 KTNF radio, Big E and yours truly (the ol’ TwoPutter) are Guest Hosting The Mark Heaney Show.

OK, that’s not “new” – Big E posted that yesterday.

What is “new” is that one of our guests will be Ken Avidor, cover artist for the new comic book “False Witness! – the Michele Bachmann story (vol. 1)” – and we’ll be giving away a signed copy of said comic book to one (maybe even two!) lucky listeners that call in!!!

Not only is this comic book funny, it has the added benefit of bein’ true.

Bill Predergast actually wrote it, but it’s our understanding Bill is out of town and unavailable, so we’ll be discussing this comic with Avidor, who is quite familiar with Little Miss Hiding In The Weeds due to his work over at DumpBachmann.Blogspot.com

So, listen in to AM-950 KTNF radio between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm for your chance to win this fabulous prize!

Oh – and you can order it online, here.
