Ricochet Podcast #85: Taxes Are Lower, Guns Are Available

It’s an all contributor edition of the podcast this week as we’re joined by UCLA professor and author Tim Groseclose and podcaster to the stars Troy Senik. We cover the week’s hot issues including Bachmann’s ambition, why Mitt Romney is like a NASCAR driver, Perry’s handling of the government injection question, the stunning (although not to Professor Groseclose) winning of the Weiner seat, and Romney’s ability to go the distance. We wrap up with  a look at — is it a cheap campaign stunt or something more ominous? We podcast, you decide.
