The Ed Morrissey Show: Guy Benson, Mary Katharine Ham

posted at 2:49 pm on August 7, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), it’s time again for our Salem All-Stars! Guy Benson and Mary Katharine Ham join me today to discuss the defunding fight on ObamaCare, Barack Obama’s new effort to close down Fannie and Freddie, and the lack of data security on ObamaCare as well. 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!

Meanwhile, let’s see what we can do for TEMS veteran Caleb Howe, who has become seriously ill with liver disease. His best friend and debate partner Tommy Christopher says his family needs serious help with the bills:

If our modern times are testing your already-waning faith in humanity, then this small victory might make you feel a little bit better. Former editor Caleb Howe, also a one-time Mediaite guest columnist, is currently hospitalized with what Redstate describes as a “failing liver,” and no health insurance. A fund was established to help Caleb’s family on the website GoFundMe, and has raised $25,000 in two days, partially due to an assist by liberal blog DailyKos. What makes this story great is just how human it has been, and not completely in a good way. From GoFundMe:

This fund is dedicated to helping the family of Caleb Howe. As he lays in the hospital with a failing liver, his children, ages 11 and 14, are heading back to school in a few weeks. It would lift an incredible burden for Caleb & Donna if they could get even the smallest amount of help with these upcoming expenses and with anything extra that comes in, we will help Caleb & Donna with their medical bills as Caleb is uninsured. If you’re not in a position to give, your prayers are always welcome in lieu of a donation. Thank you for your compassion and help.

Full disclosure: Caleb is my best friend in the whole world, which I hope no one holds against him. We first met when both of us were sent to Denver to cover the 2008 Democratic National Convention, and despite having developed a deep hatred of him through his writing, we became instant lifelong friends. He is as talented at making political opponents hate him as I am, if not more so, but is also one of the finest people I’ve ever known, and a witty, intelligent writer, to boot.

Diane Sawyer, on ABC evening news, has just renamed Kansas as Oklahoma. You know all those editors and fact checkers. She did it in writing on a graphic. That state that produced Sebelious is either trying to go incognito, or wants to steal an Oklahoma football team.

Such is the knowledge and intelligence of the Ivy League misbegotten get.
