Dom started today's show by discussing comments made on Erin Burnett’s CNN program in which Ken Cuccinelli defended his altering of the famous Emma Lazarus poem that adorns the statue of liberty, which states ‘give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore; send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I life my lamp beside the golden door!’ Cuccinelli, when asked about the poem on NPR, stated that those words are etched in the American pathos, but also said it should be added that the tired and poor should be those who are able to ‘stand on their own two feet’ and ‘not become a public charge.’ Burnett and Cuccinelli got in an argument, and the left has now picked up statements made in the CNN interview in which Cuccinelli references the immigration of Europeans in a positive light. Dom dissects that mess, and also discusses Sean Hannity’s defense of Cuomo taking offense to being called ‘Fredo.’ And because Cuomo has been so prominently featured in the news recently, Dom asked listeners to call or tweet in their ‘most annoying political pundit on TV.’ To wrap things up, Dom and Dan give their top 10 most annoying pundits, and discuss a couple who they left out and tell why.

Then, Dom is joined by Newark Police Captain Ivonne Roman who was interviewed by the USA Today Network earlier in this week, calling into question the physical fitness requirements of police departments, and how this prevents women from being equally represented in the profession. Dom insists that a stringent physical fitness test is absolutely required, while Roman argues why the test is unfair.

Finally, Dom is joined by Lenny McAllister of the Commonwealth Foundation on the topic of school choice, after Governor Wolf took aim on charter schools earlier in the week. Wolf said Tuesday that he would use executive power to hold charters to ‘the same ethical and transparency standards as public schools.’ McAllister explains the reasons he’s against executive decisions that hamper the citizens of Pennsylvania’s freedom to choose which school their children attend.
