And what did we come up with?

Amir Taheri on the Iraqi elections.
Myriam Benraad also on the Iraqi elections.
Iraq votes April 30th (security forces vote on Monday).  The western press is in a rush to declare the winner -- before voting even takes place. 
Yes, there are two Ava and C.I. pieces this edition.  They took on NBC News in the other one, while they take on Bad Teacher in this one and also cover Enlisted, Mother Up! and Cleaners. 
Robert Redford keeps finding new ways to make himself a professional joke.  Mike, Ann, Cedric and Wally covered this topic in "Idiot of the week: Robert Redford," "Robert Redford got busted as a fake ass" and "Old Man Redford exposes himself" and "THIS JUST IN! THE LYING ROBERT REDFORD!"

What we listened to during the writing of this edition.
Ava and C.I. explain how NBC News has lost control of the brand.
Short feature.  This is a State Department photo.  No credit was given on the State Department's Instram so we can't tell you who took the picture. 
We work through a few of the e-mails. 
Barack's sending what into Iraq?
How does a centrist see Barack's foreign policy?  Kenneth Pollack answers. 

Disabled Veterans of America issued the statement.
This is a press release from Senator Barbara Boxer's office. 
Repost from Workers World. 
Repost from Great Britain's Socialist Worker. 
Mike and the gang wrote this and we thank them for it. 

We'll see you next week.
