Monday Political Periscope – Debt Debate, 2012 & More
Obama and BoehnerWhen it comes to the deficit debate, there’s no rest for the weary. The White House and congressional leaders have struck a tentative accord to raise the country's debt limit, but the plan has yet to clear the full body. The bill needs to pass a 60 vote threshold in the Senate, and will need to garner 216 votes to pass the House. Leaders from both parties – including Vice President Joe Biden – are on Capital Hill this morning trying to sell the contentious plan to members. We’ll discuss the winners and losers, what it all means for the Tea Party, as well as the foreign policy implications. The Boston Globe’s national security and foreign policy columnist Juliette Kayyem and political analyst and talk show host Avi Nelson join us

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
