Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
It’s right there in the Declaration of Independence: the pursuit of happiness. From the Boston Tea Party to rock ‘n roll, Americans have always taken their fun seriously.

We cut loose, American style, with author John Beckman.
