Earlier this week, Republican congressman Ted Yoho of Florida said some rather nasty things to and about fellow House member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat from New York. What are the lessons in all this? Professor Keri Thompson of Emerson College goes deep on all this.

In this week's podcast, we interview Professor Keri Thompson of Emerson College in Boston.  She is a senior lecturer on the topic of political communication.

Thompson is also an elected official from the town of Cohasset, Massachusetts. 

Listen to this week's lively conversation about bad language, misogyny, sexism, women in politics -- and politics in general:

Our talk includes a trip down memory lane, recalling when Tip O'Neill was Speaker of the House and Ronald Reagan was president.

We also talk about one particular episode of West Wing, "The Real Thing."

Here is a link to AOC's speech in which she blasts Ted Yoho for his lack of decorum and sexism in general:
