NARN, the Party Like It’s 2008 Edition!
posted at 8:00 am on May 28, 2011 by Ed Morrissey
The Northern Alliance Radio Network will be on the air today, with your hosts Mitch Berg and Ed Morrissey, on from 1-3 CT with live streaming video and chat. If you’re in the Twin Cities, you can hear us on AM 1280 The Patriot, or on the station’s Internet stream if you’re outside of the broadcast area, as well as right here on on the permanent Ed Morrissey Show page at Hot Air. And now, NARN expands another hour with Brad Carlson stepping up to the mike from 3-4 CT, starting next week!
Today, Mitch and I will talk about the Clark Griswold Tour of Ireland and the UK conducted by Barack Obama. Can’t you just hear Lindsey Buckingham’s “Holiday Road” playing when Obama toasts the Queen — except, of course, when they’re playing “God Save the Queen” instead. We’ll also discuss Tim Pawlenty’s big week, Mark Dayton’s veto of a bill supported by 76% of Minnesotans, and much much more! Will Mitch formally enter the presidential race this weekend? Join us and find out!
Be sure to call 651-289-4488 to join the conversation! You can also register for free 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.)
Update: Brad’s NARN hour doesn’t start until next week — sorry for the confusion!
We’ll also cover the the case of Marizela Perez, who has been missing in the Seattle area for more than two months. Marizela’s case has a connection here at Hot Air, as she is the cousin of the Boss Emeritus, Michelle Malkin. Michelle is trying to spread the word through Facebook and Q13Fox/KCPQ in Seattle. We want to encourage prayers for Marizela’s family, and also try to reach anyone in the area who knows where Marizela might be and ask them to contact the police.
The search has its own website now, Find Marizela, for the latest in the efforts to bring Marizela home. There is also a fund for the family to keep the search efforts going. Be sure to check there and at Michelle’s site for further developments, and keep the family in your prayers.
America’s Most Wanted is now on the case, too.
Michelle has an update from last Friday detailing the difficulties of working with the police on cases of missing adults. Be sure to read it all to understand what this family faces — and many other families as well.
Also, Move America Forward has started its Troopathon effort for 2011, and Hot Air once again is sponsoring a blogger team in the competition! The Hot Air Steamers will square off against 5 other blogger teams — the COINS, Team 6, The Greyhawks, The Anti-Jihadists, and our friends at Free Republic on their own as The Freepers. The Steamers team includes Maggie’s Notebook, Lonely Conservative, and No Sheeples Here.
We’re combining up to sell care packages for our troops overseas. We’ll all take part in the Troopathon on June 23rd, when we’ll find out how the Steamers managed to do against our stalwart competitors — but this is one contest where everyone wins, especially the men and women who receive these packages and feel some small part of the support we all want to give them. Be generous, and thank you for your efforts!
