Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’ll have a National Review day! Our friend Jim Geraghty from Campaign Spot shifts from his normal Wednesday spot after yesterday’s server difficulties had to end the show early, and we’ll catch up with his excellent analysis of the race so far. In the second half, NR columnist and author David Freddoso brings us up to date on The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate.  (You can read my review here.)  With five days left, Freddoso’s work is more important than ever before.

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!
