In the two weeks since the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, we've heard a chorus of chants from the left about the need for Republicans to do their jobs and rubber-stamp President Barack Obama's future pick for the vacant seat on the bench.

But just a few years ago, Democrats and liberals in the media were taking a different point of view.  Matt Kittle sits down with Eric Boehm to discuss how things change when the shoes are on the other feet.

Then, Dustin Hurst from the Idaho Freedom Foundation stops by to explain why the state government in Idaho is spending $150,000 to hire more inspectors who will target illegal barbershops and makeup studios.  The state's Board of Cosmetology apparently has nothing better to do.

All that, plus a look at how Colorado taxpayers are supporting lobbyists for state and local governments, and our weekly Nanny State segment on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
