This Week's Podcast: Mix Nutmeg, Oil & Sestak, And What Do You Get?

This Week's Podcast: Mix Nutmeg, Oil & Sestak, And What Do You Get?

Only one primary of note this week — a GOP House contest in Idaho — and a special congressional race in Hawaii.  But that hardly scratches the surface.

The oil spill in the Gulf leads to questions about the Obama administration's readiness.  The Joe Sestak "job offer" leads to a discussion of the differences between perception and the law.  The Rand Paul rumination about the 1964 Civil Rights Act leads to questions about libertarian philosophy.  And for all the hand wringing over Richard Blumenthal's military service, a new poll shows folks in Connecticut are not concerned — which leads to questions about how things are being perceived in the Beltway.

All that and, sadly, much more, in this week's episode of our "It's All Politics" podcast.

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