Last week, AP reporter Matt Lee grilled State Department spokesman Ned Price over U.S. intelligence assertions that Russia is planning a false-flag operation as “a fake pretext to initiate and potentially justify military aggression against Ukraine.” Friend of the pod and host of the Don’t Worry About The Government podcast, Chris Novembrino, joins Matt to discuss the drama—and whether we should just take the government’s word as gospel truth.
Whether it’s the illiberal Left or the illiberal Right, Matt’s operating principle is to assume that liberal democracy is both precious and fragile. On today’s episode Matt discusses this with Chris Novembrino, who hosted Matt on his podcast, Don’t Worry About The Government. They also discuss the Capitol riots, Marjorie Taylor Green, Josh Hawley & Ted Cruz, how experiences in school made them less into ‘authority’ figures, why Chris thinks it’s important to be a loving spouse (if you’re married), artistic freedom, and Donald Trump in a motorized scooter!
It’s been four years since I turned in the manuscript for my cult classic book about the serious challenges facing the Republican Party, Too Dumb to Fail. A lot has changed since then, so I thought it might be fun to revisit the book and see what stands the test of time (and what doesn’t). During this conversation with Chris Novembrino’s “Don’t Worry About The Government” podcast, we look back at Too Dumb to Fail to see how relevant it still is today.
