Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Andrew Malcolm joins us once again to discuss media and politics! We’ll talk about the Hollywood reaction to the Roman Polanski arrest, the news about Sarah Palin’s new book, and much much more!

In the second half, we’ll be talking with Senator James Inhofe about his upcoming trip to Copenhagen to attend the global-warming conference. We’ll also ask him about his efforts to strip funding from the budget for closing Gitmo and the new effort to remove immunity from the telecoms that supported the NSA in their mission to protect the US. 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.

Jazz Shaw of The Moderate Voice and The Monster moderate the chat, and they have Troll Gun Trivia Contest running before the show, for those who get there early — and are registered!
