Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’re going 90 minutes today with the election just around the corner. In the first 30 minutes, we’ll talk with Investors Business Daily’s Monica Showalter about the economic policy differences between Barack Obama and John McCain, especially on trade, and the odd phenomenon of feminist attacks against one of the highest-ranking women in America — and the liberals defending Governor Sarah Palin. Afterwards, we’ll have Jim Geraghty from National Review’s Campaign Spot for an hour, discussing the latest developments and the political undercurrents. Don’t miss it!

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!

Note: We had too many problems with the live Ustream feed today, so we called a halt to the show after Monica’s interview. Be sure to watch the replay, though!
