Is it democracy in action? Is it mob rule? Whatever you make of the protests inside and outside the town-hall meetings this month on health care, it's clear that people have questions that aren't being answered.
And today's Political Junkie segment on NPR's Talk of the Nation wants to hear your questions.
There are other questions as well. Why is Sen. Mel Martinez (R-FL) leaving his seat early? Why did Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) back out of a primary challenge to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand? What is Rick Santorum doing in Iowa? And exactly what role did Karl Rove play in the firing of those U.S. attorneys?
Join host Neal Conan and me every Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET for the Junkie segment on TOTN, where you can often, but not always, find interesting conversation, useless trivia questions and sparkling jokes. And you can win a Political Junkie T-shirt! (Neal is on vacation this week; guest host is NPR's Lynn Neary.)
Last week's program — featuring the machinations leading to the Sonia Sotomayor confirmation — can be heard here.
If your local NPR station doesn't carry TOTN, you can hear the program on the Web or on HD Radio. And if you are a subscriber to XM/Sirius radio, you can find the show there as well (siriusly).
