He speaks with Steve Proffitt about the "bubble" and the way it infects how Washingtonians think, act and govern.
Thomas Frank, writer for Harper's magazine; author of "What's the Matter with Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America." His article, "The Bleakness Stakes," can be found in the November issue of Harper's, on newsstands now.
