On the Show:
–At the Super Bowl Christina Aquilera messes up the national anthem, proving that it wasn’t prerecorded, the Black Eyed Peas do a terrible halftime performance, and a horribly offensive ad about Tibet for GroupOn was initially confusing to David.
–David Silverman, President of American Atheists, discusses Bill O’Reilly playing an on-air character very different from the real Bill O’Reilly, debates with David Pakman about whether he is actually atheist, and much more.
–Ronald Reagan has become the barometer for conservatives, even though his tax raising, deficit exploding, anti-war, pro-choice and other actions go against those claims.
–George W. Bush cancels a trip to Switzerland, and even though organizers claim it is due to security reasons, evidence suggests it is because Switzerland might attempt to arrest him.
–Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation, joins us to discuss militarism, corporatism, and sexism at the Super Bowl, then talking about the offensive GroupOn ads about Tibet and the Amazon rainforest.
–John Boehner got a chance to increase transparency through CSPAN, but said no, and we can’t blame him not wanting to be seen on TV handing out tobacco checks to fellow members of Congress.
–House Republicans no longer want to redefine rape, but a Georgia lawmaker wants to change the term victim to accuser until a conviction has take place, a patently absurd idea, and we explain why.
–Emails about the woman who brutally killed her dog because it chewed her Bible, Michele Obama running for President in 2012, Mexican drug cartels buying guns in Arizona, the NRA and more.
–On the Bonus Show Gabrielle Giffords gets brain injury treatment that troops deserve, Brazil looks to add happiness to its constitution, AOL buys the Huffington Post, Black Eyed Peas political statements, more.
