THIS WEEK, The Pontificast crew reconvenes at the Empire State Building in New York for a lively discussion of the following laundry list: Barack Obama’s historic win and his behavior since, Sarah Palin’s frenzied week of mainstream-media interviews, how the apocryphal young evangelical voted, and why on earth the Democrats want to start bailing out industries that are behind the times. Update: We say on the broadcast that we opened comments for this episode, but our comments-for-articles feature isn’t working at the moment. So unfortunately, if you want to rip us, you’ll have to do it to our faces: firstname.lastname@example.org.
