Since Donald Trump is, in reality, a game show host, I thought that today, we'd play a little game of Who Wants to be a Dictator? Well, we all know the answer to that. But how easy is that for Don the Con to do? We'll find out today in conversation with Kenneth C. Davis, author of "Strongman: The Rise of Five Dictators and the Fall of Democracy". Later in the hour, I'll check in with Liam O'Mara, progressive Democratic candidate running for Congress from CA-42. Let's increase the squad's numbers! And a thought about taking care of yourself, especially during this pandemic...

Today is Thursday, our regular get-together with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. We're less than three weeks away from election day, and millions of American have already voted. Don't forget, the down-ballot races are every bit as important as the presidential race. We'll talk with Howie about the progressive pick ups possible this time around.

I've been watching the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett so you don't have to, and I never want to hear the words " I don't want to express a view on that" again. Thankfully, for the second half of today's show, I'm joined by Lisa Graves of True North Research. She most certainly will express her views, and she's got the bona fides to weigh in on this nominee as a former counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee under then-chair Patrick Leahy and more.

Every Tuesday, GottaLaff joins me to talk about what's happening in our world. Today also happens to be Day 2 of the Senate Judiciary Committee Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett, Trump's nominee to fill Ruth Bader Ginsberg's seat. Yes, we have a lot to say today...

They're really doing it! Instead of coming together to pass some kind of relief for the millions suffering from the effects of the pandemic, the Republican Senate leadership is forcing a rushed Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Today is Day One, when all 22 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee give their opening remarks, as does nominee Amy Coney Barrett. It's a depressing day in America. After an update on the news and a recap of some of today's hearing, we'll speak with Jennifer Taub about her new book, "Big Dirty Money: The Shocking Injustice and Unseen Cost of White Collar Crime".
