Thursday HausGuests: Author David Daley and Gun Expert Larry Pratt

BIG HausGuest day!

HausGuest #1 – David Daley

David Daley is the editor-in-chief of Salon and the Digital Media Fellow for the Wilson Center for Humanities and the Arts and the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia.

He has JUST written this book and we’re going to be talking about it:51WHbE4YqqL

Here’s the book summary:

“With Barack Obama’s historic election in 2008, pundits proclaimed the Republicans as dead as the Whigs of yesteryear. Yet even as Democrats swooned, a small cadre of Republican operatives, including Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie, and Chris Jankowski began plotting their comeback with a simple yet ingenious plan. These men had devised a way to take a tradition of dirty tricks―known to political insiders as “ratf**king”―to a whole new, unprecedented level. Flooding state races with a gold rush of dark money made possible by Citizens United, the Republicans reshaped state legislatures, where the power to redistrict is held.

Reconstructing this never- told-before story, David Daley examines the far-reaching effects of this so-called REDMAP program, which has radically altered America’s electoral map and created a firewall in the House, insulating the party and its wealthy donors from popular democracy. Ratf**ked pulls back the curtain on one of the greatest heists in American political history.”

HausGuest #2 – Larry Pratt

Larry is the Executive Director Emeritus of the Gun Owners of America, a grassroots organization dedicated to preserving 2nd Amendment rights.
