Fortunately, things are slightly more sane at WPKN

WBAI's Mimi Rosenberg and the Pacifica National Board. They sure know how to bring the crazy.

Bonus video: we don't get any cowbell at WPKN staff meetings.

UPDATE 8/4/09: More cowbell!

Kerplunk - Common sense from Down Under: Obama - slow to support real democracy, quick to support autocracy

Kerplunk talks about Obama's support for would-be Honduran dictator Zelaya.
Isn't it remarkable that the person who was meant to re-establish America's moral authority in the world would throw his hat in with Chavez, Castro, Morales et al?

So who are they supporting?

In Honduras they have a one term limit for the position of president. The limit was introduced to ensure that the country did not go down the path of other Latin American countries that historically have seen democratically elected leaders usurp power for themselves in the same way that Chavez has in Venezuela.

Zelaya was trying to circumvent the Constitution by ensuring he could get elected for further terms.
Read it all.
