Healthcare maven James C. Capretta joins Jay and Mona this week to clarify the ins and outs (okay, mostly outs) of Obamacare and to suggest a Republican alternative. Jay and Mona contemplate the scaffolding of lies upon which the law was built.They then consider whether there’s been a sudden upsurge of racism in America – after all, Obama’s approval ratings are down!

Though the president’s capacity to damage America is diminished, his ability to sow chaos around the world is not. Jay and Mona look at Iran and more.

There are reminiscences of Bush’s choices to receive the Medal of Freedom, and a well-placed swipe at Picasso from Shostakovich. Plus: What do Aussies do to keep kids away from McDonalds?
