Sam's so casual today, he's strapping a heart monitor to himself to prove that even his heart rate is slowing down. As always, Sam will be taking your calls on all topics at 866-303-2270, and we'll have the SammyCam in full effect starting at 9:30 eastern. And you'll want to connect to that SammyCam, so you can feast your eyes on Janeane Garofalo, who'll come by in the third hour to hang out. Plus, the always dapper Joe Conason makes his regular Friday visit. Enjoy.

Well friends, it's an embarassment of riches today. Newt Gingrich says that Spanish is the language of the ghetto, then apologizes...in Spanish. (Check it out.) Rush Limbaugh slams Nancy Pelosi for wearing a headscarf in Syria, even though Laura Bush did the same thing when she went to the Middle East. Then Glenn Beck claims that he "can't win," because he's a white Christian human living in America, and most people hate those. He's sure got our number. In fact, today we're welcoming three guests with established histories of hatred for humanity. Blogger Atrios on the news of the day, writer Eric Alterman on Chris Matthews' man crushes, and columnist Spencer Ackerman on Iraq. Down with humans!

It looks like the "loyal Bushies" are fleeing this administration like Jews from Egypt. Matthew Dowd didn't even wait for his bread to rise. Tonight begins the Jewish holiday of Passover, but Sam's in the driver's seat for today, before he heads out of town for two days to get in touch with his roots. Today Sam welcomes back Professor Juan Cole, Clintonite Sidney Blumenthal, and Bill Scher from Liberal Oasis. Last stop for yeast!
