New Bloggingheads: Bad Craziness in Both Parties

This week’s episode of the Washington Monthly Show, a videocast/podcast via BloggingheadsTV, features former WaMo editor and Beliefnet founder Steve Waldman as guest co-host. We talked about the craziness breaking out in both parties at the moment–on the Democratic side a wave of media-induced panic over Hillary Clinton’s standing and on the Republican side the continued strength of Trump and the other “wacko birds”–and what we can expect in the future. We manage in just 30 minutes to deploy two 1972 and one 1968 analogy! Check it out.
