Coming up on today’s show, we have the author of Herding Donkeys, Ari Berman from the Nation here to talk about his article in this month’s Rolling Stone Magazine, entitled The GOP War on Voting.

We also have Dahlia Lithwick from Slate here to discuss her latest piece on how the Obama administration is letting former Vice President Dick Cheney get away with torture.

We’ll also be chatting once again with the editor and chief of Think Progress, Faiz Shakir, about Fear Inc., the new report by the Center for American Progress on the Islamophobia network in America.

Plus we also have the man behind idea in Arizona to charge family members an admission fee to visit loved ones in prison.

We’ll also discuss the disgusting audience reaction at the GOP Presidential debate last night when Brian Williams mentioned that Rick Perry has executed 234 people.  

Take a minute to ask Georgia to stop the execution of Troy Davis by signing the online petition and calling the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles at 404-656-5651.

Our writer/performer today is Frank Chow.
