Jamie returns from San Francisco where he secured some badass upcoming guests for Citizen Radio: Comic Paul F. Tompkins and Robin Williams, the newest members of the Church Of The Smiling Vagina (COSV)!
Next, Allison discusses Don McLeroy, the creationist who sits on the Texas State Board of Education, and who calls evolution “hooey.” McLeroy is one of the leaders of an activist bloc that aims to rehabilitate Joseph McCarthy, bring global-warming denial into science class, and downplay the contributions of the civil rights movement.

Pastor Rick Scarborough and Vision America are recruiting pastors for political purposes. Allison asks: doesn’t this violate the separation of church and state?
Finally, Allison interviews Michael Anthony, author of Mass Casualties (http://www.masscasualties.com/). Anthony was an Operating Room Medic in Iraq, and joins Citizen Radio to talk about the widespread corruption he witnessed in the military.
