This Week's Podcast: Deciphering Tuesday's Message

There's been a lot of misinformation about what happened in Tuesday's primaries and the special election in PA 12.

So there's no reason why this week's episode of our "It's All Politics" podcast shouldn't add to the confusion.

Anti-establishment messages in Kentucky and Arkansas, the end of the Arlen Specter era in Pennsylvania, and what to make of the results in PA 12.  Plus, Richard Blumenthal fights off the Viet Cong in Connecticut, and Mark Souder ends his abstinence in Indiana.

Even more tragically, you can listen to it right here:
