Missed Him in Seattle Last Night?: "Markos Moulitsas: Conservatives, Corporations and Congress" (video)

GRITtv, with video (14:40):
"Ann Coulter hasn't beheaded anybody, I'm glad that's the new marker for extremism" says Markos Moulitsas of criticism of his new book, American Taliban. To the argument that comparing the American Right to the Taliban is unfair and hyperbolic, Markos notes that you don't have to go too far back in U.S. history to find lynchings and other forms of violence used in service of repressive ideas.

Markos joins Laura in studio to talk about the book, the Democrats' disdain for their progressive base, the problems with the filibuster, and much more.
Howie P.S.: This is a shorter version of Markos' remarks last night @ Town Hall.
