The Ed Morrissey Show: Kevin McCullough, Waking the Sleeping Giant; Update: Canceled

posted at 2:00 pm on March 5, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Update: Due to a personal issue (nothing bad, no worries), today’s show has to be canceled.  We’ll get Timothy and Gary on Thursday’s show instead.

Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), Kevin McCullough joins us again to discuss the intersection of faith and politics. Kevin and I will talk about Super Tuesday, the flap over Rush’s remarks, and the end of the federal “snowflake children” program.

In bonus minutes, we’ll meet Timothy Daughtry and Gary Casselman and discuss their new book Waking the Sleeping Giant: How Mainstream Americans Can Beat Liberals at Their Own Game. Don’t miss it!

We’ll also talk about The Binge Thinker, Kevin and Stephen’s exploding success in independent talk radio, as well as Kevin’s new book, No He Can’t: How Barack Obama Is Dismantling Hope and Change, being released this week! Don’t forget about Kevin’s previous book, The Kind of Man Every Man Should Be: Taking a Stand for True Masculinity, either.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page — be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!

Marizela Perez has been missing for a year.

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 a new update on the case on the one-year anniversary:

Exactly one year ago today, my 18-year-old cousin Marizela (known affectionately to her family and friends as “Emem” or “Mei”) Perez disappeared from the University of Washington campus in Seattle.

She is still missing.

Those words form on the computer screen with disembodied disbelief. But my heart is screaming:

SHE IS STILL MISSING. WHY, DEAR GOD, WHY?!!!!!

The not-knowing is every parent’s worst nightmare. It brought normal life to a standstill for Marizela’s parents, Edgar and Jasmin. And yet, they have to keep living and working and praying for their only daughter. Because that is what they must do. Their strength and dignity through all the suffering has been an inspiration to me.

There have been no new developments in Emem’s case. No word from the police or the medical examiner’s office. No activity on her bank accounts or social media accounts.

And no response from the Google legal department to our request for help in January.

Keep the prayers coming.

I spy an unclosed italic tag.

Ed, you have to close the italics AND the underline, I think.

Thanks for posting that. After reading her transcript, I hadn’t realized that all her testimony was anecdotal evidence. I guess that aspiring lawyers don’t learn about citing facts and sources.

Some of those stories made me really wonder just how smart a person needs to be to enroll at Georgetown. I’m guessing that answer is “not very.”

And that $1000 bet, how bold! That shows real confidence.

Waking the Sleeping Giant; Update: Canceled

So, does that mean the Sleeping Giant got to sleep in?
