Trouble in Philadelphia. Controversy engulfs the DNC amidst its preparations for the Democratic National Convention. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz resigns her position, while Hillary Clinton's campaign manager blames "Russian state actors" for their current party predicament. Dark times for the DNC? Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton names Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate. As the media waxes enthusiastic about Kaine's "fluency" in Spanish, we question his linguistic bonafides. Are Democrats pandering to Hispanic voters? Compensating for not adding a Hispanic candidate to their ticket? Is "a little bit better than nada"? Plus, we review the successful RNC Convention in Cleveland and the stirring capstone speech of GOP nominee Donald Trump, as we study the amazing implosion of Senator Ted Cruz. Also, commentary on terrorism in Germany and reactions to Peter Schweizer's stunning new film adaptation of Clinton Cash. With Listener Calls and Music via the Texas Tornados, Soundgarden, Green Day, Helene Fischer and My Fair Lady.
