Episode Summary

John Bowe
Tonight, journalist and author of Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy, John Bowe. Jon begins tonight's show with Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visit to New York City in a segment called "Ahmadine Minute". His visit sparked some controversy when Ahmadinejad wanted to visit the 9/11 site and when Columbia University invited him to speak. "Clusterf@#k to the White House" continues as the Democrats debate in front of the AARP in a segment called "The World According to AARP". One of the highlights of the debate was the fly circling from one candidates head to the next. The Republicans chose to speak in front of one of their key base groups, the NRA. Some of the highlights, Giuliani's anti-gun stance has changed because of, you guessed it, 9/11. As Jon notes, Giuliani has a problem always talking about 9/11. This is tragically due to Guiliani's medical condition, 9/11 Tourette's. Finally, Senior Historical Perspectivist Buck Henry drops by to talk with Jon about how choosing presidential candidates through the primary process has changed over the years and how come Iowa and New Hampshire are so important as early primary state's in a segment called "The Henry Stops Here".moreless
