Welcome to Left Out, reality-based independent radio on WRCT 88.3FM, and on the worldwide web at leftout.info. Left Out discusses the news from a perspective left out of the mainstream media. Left Out is co-hosted by Bob Harper and Danny Sleator. Today's program is produced by Deren Guler.
Today we welcome Thomas Frank, author of What's the Matter With Kansas, to discuss his most recent book, The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule. Thomas Frank's book documents the deliberate incompetence and corruption that the Republican party brings to Washington, and the damage that they have done in the process. Frank argues that, rather than being a failure, the Bush administration is, in the eyes of its backers, a huge success ... because of, not in spite of, their colossal incompetence!
