Jimmy,

It’s MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000. You can never say the whole thing correctly on your show. If it’s too long for you, just say MST3K.

The 10th and the 3rd links are to the same episode.

THose arent the same episodes, just the charlie sheen voicemails are the same because when you first heard them the people in Los Angeles hadn’t because KPFK was in fund drive on the 3rd. So I decided to play then again on the 10th they would play on the radio in Los Angeles. If you listen to the rest of the shows you will see the are indeed different.

Thanks for listening!

Jimmy, you seemed surprised by Pat Buchanan’s comments you quoted on your show, but actually they are typical of the man and of the specific political philosophy he comes out of. Pat is an old school conservative and a right wing populist. Old school conservatives (as opposed to neocons and neo liberals and other ‘market right wingers’) believe that society owes something to the poor and should ‘take care’ of them. Traditional conservatives are like the old slave aristocracy of the south, who claimed that they were caring for the people they exploited. Conservatives think the poor are inferior, but claim that the superior men (the leaders and the owners) have an obligation to make sure the inferior people don’t suffer unduly. It’s a school of thought that traces to the old medieval aristocratic tradition of the right. Although such conservatives are generally awful to the people they exploit, they pay a lot of lip service to caring for people. Populist conservatives of the nineteenth century type also argued for a fairer deal for American working people, these are similar to the anti-government right wing populists of today. Right wing populists claimed to represent the interests of the little guy against the rich, while actually acting as a control mechanism. It is true that such populists in the past were often critical of Unions, but Unions today are much less of a threat than in the past. Also, Buchanan is an old school nationalist, arguing for protection of national interests over international ones. So he is for tariffs and protective pricing against imports partly to protect the incomes of American workers. None of this is new for Buchanan; he has been espousing this stuff at least since the early nineties.

Duke,

Thanks for the info pal, I appreciate it. Where did all those kind of conservatives go?

They still exist, they are referred to in the media as paleocons (as opposed to neocons) they are largely marginalized because they are sometimes critical of corporate power. There are also paleocon strains in the paranoid ultra right movements which Buchanan is sometimes accused of being associated with.

Hey Jimmy, I know you already put a ton of work into the show, but is there any way you can link some of the clips you use? I really want to send that Buchanan clip to somebody but I can’t find it online. Also, while all your cohosts have been great and much appreciated, special props to Frank Conniff for consistently making me crack up while listening.
