The Ed Morrissey Show: Guy Benson, Amelia Hamilton

posted at 1:26 pm on April 18, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), my Townhall colleague and good friend Guy Benson returns to discuss the top political stories of the day, including the polling that has kicked off the 2012 general election fight for the White House, and the continuation of the Senate’s (yellow) streak on budgeting.  In the second half, we welcome author and pundit Amelia Hamilton to discuss reaction to her children’s book One Nation Under God: A Book for Little Patriots.  For some reason, that title seems to have provoked a reaction from some of the usual suspects.  Amelia will tell us more, so don’t miss it!

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.

and hot, too? And they said the perfect girl didn’t exist…

Why are all these very attractive women republicans? I suspect foul play.

dunce on April 18, 2012 at 3:01 PM

Wow! Amelia, it says in your bio that you’re a dog lover. Do you love dogs? I mean really love dogs?
Woof!

OkieDoc on April 18, 2012 at 3:10 PM

If the angry one shows up here let Ed know. I have to go out for a bit. I’ll catch the rerun. Sorry.

Bmore on April 18, 2012 at 3:20 PM

Not dropping names (well maybe a little), but Amelia is a close personal friend… :)

What’s with Hot Air’s predilection for the cheesecake pin-up photos?

How about Byron York in a muscle shirt?

Our country is on the brink. Let’s get serious here.

Bmore on April 18, 2012 at 5:07 PM

Guy needs to improve his sense of humor. This whole episode is hilarious. Its good for a laugh if nothing else.

Bmore on April 18, 2012 at 5:23 PM
