Alert the Media: Filling in for Hugh Hewitt

posted at 5:50 pm on February 19, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Hugh Hewitt is out today, so I will take this opportunity to introduce Hot Air to our Salem Communications brethren.  Tonight, I’ll be filling in the first two hours from the Heritage Foundation studio in Washington DC.  In the first hour, we’ll take your calls at 800-520-1234 and talking about some hot topics:

  • Sebelius says the public option isn’t dead yet
  • Joe Sestak says the White House tried to bribe him with a federal job
  • Tiger Woods
  • Barack Obama joins the Las Vegas Tourist Bureau
  • Jeb Bush tells Obama to stop blaming his brother
  • Tim Pawlenty: We’ll be like Tiger Woods’ wife, taking a 9-iron to big government
  • Bill Maher: Fox News audience is equivalent of a Down’s Syndrome child

We’ll also talk with the Beltway Boys, Brian Westbury, and possibly Rep. John Campbell — and with our callers!  Be sure to listen on the live stream here, and don’t forget to follow along and take part in the Twitter chat by using the hash-tag #hhrs!

2010: The Year of Ed. :)

After being introduced by the EIB master himself and getting the EIB (excellence in blogging) award, I am sure you are up to the task.

AllahPundit?

Rush only hires illegal immigrants to fill in for him

Wow, our little bloggers are all grown up!

We’re in the same market. Question, will the Townhall player work on my Android phone as I head to a meeting….

Love Hugh Hewitt too. A professor I had as an undergrad invited him to give be a guest lecturer. He was great. He was the only person to express a conservative viewpoint in my years as an undergrad and grad student.

El_Terrible on February 19, 2010 at 6:14 PM

Congratulations Ed.

Streaming live now. I too would like to hear an interview with the reclusive, the one, the only Allahpundit.

Got it!

Colorado Anne on February 19, 2010 at 6:16 PM

Finally…the change I’ve been looking for.

29Victor on February 19, 2010 at 6:17 PM

I’ve never heard Ed before. What a happy-sounding, gentle, knowledgeable voice.

Colorado Anne on February 19, 2010 at 6:25 PM

..well, there’s a gem that’ll recoup my %60 Hughniverse tariff for this year. See if you can get that gig a bunch more times, Ed.

Not that Hugh is boring. He has been on fiyah the past few weeks. Guess the old pre-06 and pre-08 smugness is gone; he has really been pi$$ing all over TEH PANTLOAD’s incompetence lately.

Algore?

Everybody floss? The guy’s an effing moron.

Colorado Anne on February 19, 2010 at 6:47 PM

This is great, but I miss the chat that goes with TEMS.

The “Dr. Obama” clips are great. “Floss your teeth or you’ll get bad grades and have a heart attack, and of course the government will need to get involved in dentistry – it’s for the children”

Dentist: “No thanks, go ahead and start with the MDs first, OK?”

Colorado Anne on February 19, 2010 at 6:47 PM

Don’t be ignorant. Put air in your tires!

El_Terrible on February 19, 2010 at 6:50 PM

“Floss, because you’re screwed under commie dentistry if something goes wrong with your teeth, but you might get a pain pill if you’re a party member.”

forest on February 19, 2010 at 6:52 PM

Krauthammer + Ed !!!

El_Terrible on February 19, 2010 at 7:08 PM

Banner day Ed!

Blogger of the Year at CPAC, introduced by Rush, filling in for Hugh Hewitt, and now interviewing Dr. Krauthammer!! I’m jealous!

Keep up the great work!

Desert Gardens on February 19, 2010 at 7:23 PM

Doing great, Ed. You seriously need national syndication.

Maybe Salem will give you a show?

wildcat84 on February 19, 2010 at 7:36 PM

Corporate synergy, baby!
