Welcome HLC listeners, Buddhists, Jains, Christians, Muslims and ye of no faith at all! Welcome indeed to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 220, yes you heard right. That’s number 220! This is the Judge da Buddha edition of the show with your judgemental hosts Todd Feinburg on the East Coast and Mike Stopa on the Left coast.
Today we discuss the latest Dem phenom, South Bend Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg. He of the Afghanistan tour (while mayor!), he of the openly gay (since 2015), he of the really garden variety liberal political opinions. He of the highly articulate Harvard speak. Is he real? Is he in fact the Bill Weld of the Democrat party? We discuss.
Then, Israel, Oh, Israel. The Trump administration has been better to Israel than any administration in history. They have accepted Israeli annexing of the Golan, they have signaled willingness to allow Israeli annexing of the West Bank. Why are American Jews writing lengthy missives denouncing Trump’s policies? Losing a little of the flock there, Moses?
Our shower thoughts, yes? Some comments on the burning church in Paris. And 88 years ago today Louisiana was six feet under water (most of it anyway). The story inspired Randy Newman to write Louisiana 1927. Enjoy!
