This Week's Podcast: Good Week For Lisa, Bad One For Charlie

I was so distressed by Roger Ailes' latest blast at NPR that now I can't even listen to the podcast without removing my armband.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't listen.

And lots to talk about in this week's episode of "It's All Politics":  Charlie Rangel's ethics woes, Michael Steele's viability woes, Lisa Murkowski's comeback in Alaska, the leadership elections on Capitol Hill, and the Word of the Year.

All of which you can listen to here:
