Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson of the Hugh Hewitt Show joins us for our Week in Review. However, I suspect most of our time will be spent on analyzing last night’s debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden. We’ll save some time to preview Hugh’s show tonight, after his marathon 6-hour broadcast last night.

Special note: Today is my 5-year blogiversary!  I started Captain’s Quarters on October 2nd, 2003, and I’ve blogged constantly since.  I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than with my friends at TEMS.  Big thanks to Jim Lynch, who first reminded me of it, and to Sister Toldjah, who is also celebrating Blogiversary #5 today.

Now you can join the conversation in the chat room! Be sure to register at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions. (And if the log-in prompt doesn’t come up in the chat box below, use this link instead.) Jazz Shaw of The Moderate Voice moderates the chat, and he has his Troll Gun Trivia Contest running before the show, for those who get there early — and are registered!
