Need to Know with Mona Charen and Jay Nordlinger The Big Think

Direct link to MP3 file

This week, The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol provides an antidote to pessimism and charts the way forward. He talks about ObamaCare and the brighter lights in the Republican party. Then, Mona and Jay discuss Jon Stewart (who has a problem with ObamaCare), Saudi Arabia (which has had it with Obama), Iran (which is growing cockier), Alice Munro (who has won a Nobel prize), and other timely subjects. Finally, go Saxons! (A football team, with a name less controversial, but also stranger, than “Redskins.”)
