Monday Political Periscope: Libya, 2012, On The Ground Report From NH, And More
GadaffiLibyan rebels claim to be in control of most of the war torn country’s capital and the international community is calling on Moammar Gadhafi to step down.But, the whereabouts of the longtime Libyan leader remain unknown. We’ll check in with Amb. Nicholas Burns, former U.S. Under Secretary of State and the former U.S. Ambassdor to NATO – who is now a professor of diplomacy and international politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government. Then, we’ll raise our political periscope – as we do every Monday – and examine some of the political stories percolating locally and nationally. Republican State Sen. Robert Hedlund and Massachusetts Democratic Party chairman John Walsh are here to discuss everything from Bay State redistricting to the president’s post-Labor Day unemployment address. We’ll also be joined by WMUR political directorJames Pindell for an update on Mitt Romney’s swing through the Granite State this week and a look at what the infighting inside the New Hampshire Republican party is all about.

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
