Senator Russ Feingold: “While America Sleeps”
No one was fully prepared for the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City, and more than ten years after that historic day, former United States Senator Russ Feingold cautions that America may still be unprepared against terroristic threats. In his new book, “While America Sleeps: A Wake-up Call for the Post-9/11 Era,” he examines America’s reaction to the 9/11 attacks, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the precautions taken by the U.S. to defend itself against possible future attacks, including criticism of the Obama administration for its actions in Iraq and over confidence in the degradation of Al Qaeda’s threat. Feingold analyzes the ramifications of Osama bin Laden’s assassination and advises Americans to avoid being diverted by partisanship and religious or cultural differences, and to guard against overall complacency in an increasingly globalized international community. Senator Feingold joins Patt in studio.

Comedy Congress: live from the Crawford Family Forum
Ladies and gentlemen, Comedy Congress is back in session! One by one, the GOP primary candidates fall away … what’s left? Good times and a good laugh with the political wits assembled … to quote a former Texas governor, “politicians born with a silver foot in their mouths!” This term, Patt, Alonzo Bodden, Greg Proops, and Ben Gleib address the hysterically important issues of religion, foreign languages, and negative campaign ads. Thanks to the primary race, the panel is overflowing with an embarrassment of riches. And with Super Tuesday just around the corner, join Patt as she gavels to order another witty evaluation of the latest gaffes and blunders in U.S. politics.
