#RandiRhodes Show: Arguing With Idiots

by Randi Rhodes posted Mar 25 2013 4:36PM

Randi's off this week, but Nicole Sandler's sitting in with latest on what you need to know and some great guests...

The Supreme Court has a busy week. Today it's 'pay for delay'... a nefarious little Big Pharma practice in which brand name drug companies pay generic drug companies to keep low-cost generics off the market. Sleazy, right? This is something both the brand namers and the generics want to keep doing without the Federal Trade Commission's pesky big gubmint attitude getting in the way.

Tomorrow and Wednesday the Supremes will tackle marriage equality as the constitutionality of both California's Prop 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will be argued. You can probably guess where Justice Scalia's level of enlightenment is at on these matters.
On their way out the door for another two-week break, the Senate passed their first budget in 4 years. When they return from recess they'll take up guns, but as of right now it doesn't look too good for Sen. Feinstein's assault weapons ban.
Nicole will also unpack President Obama's Mideast trip, spend some time with ex-Rep. Bob Ney (of the Abramoff scandal) who's out prison with a new book and bunch of Boehner-bashing headlines, and she'll talk with the Nation Magazine's Dave Zirin about his piece "The Verdict: Steubenville Shows the Bond Between Jock Culture and Rape Culture."

Nicole Sandler is in for Randi Rhodes this week from 6 PM to 8 PM on WWRL AM 1600.
