Brian, Senor Cardgage and RadioNed make a correction regarding Ron Paul’s presidential exploratory committee and discuss what may be the final stop on the Trump Train and the end of the media’s fascination with the birther issue; new WikiLeaks issues including Assange’s comments regarding Facebook and a Santa-related memo from Canada; devastating tornadoes in the American South; the death of Osama bin Laden including Americans’ reactions, the story of what happened, and the fall out from his death; the Canadian elections; the latest news concerning the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill; and some developments surrounding medical marijuana and drug prohibition in the United States. The panelists also discuss their picks of the week.
