TEMS Thursday: Guest hosting the Hugh Hewitt Show

posted at 5:12 pm on July 31, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

The Ed Morrissey Show will be pre-empted all week as I guest host for Hugh Hewitt on the Salem Radio Network, from Hugh’s studio in Southern California. My main mission this week will be covering the Pittsburgh Steelers’ training camp in anticipation of their march to their seventh Super Bowl title, but we’ll try squeezing in a little current affairs and politics topics as well. We have another great line-up for today:

Plus your calls at 800-520-1234!  Be sure to join the Hughniverse to watch the show live on streaming video, or tune in to your local Salem affiliate to hear it in the air, starting at 6 ET. And you’ll want to have the Hughniverse membership for tomorrow, when Adam Baldwin, star of the hit new TNT series The Last Ship, joins me in studio!

Kurt Schlichter is awesome. Guys, follow him on twitter. He’s a funny guy.

Also, I hope this show tries to get an interview with TN conservative Joe Carr who is fighting to replace illegal alien amnesty supporter Lamar Alexander.

Kurt Schlichter and this other atty creep posted hundreds of comments about how bigoted conservatives were for not insisting cpac allow goproud to set up shop.

So, screw him…

Kurt Schlichter isn’t really a Conservative like his book claims, unless that means supporting party over principle. I engaged in a 45 minute argument with him on twitter about the difference between party loyalty, ideology and principled actions.

Kurt seemed to think it was cowardice and being a traitor to not show support to Thad Cochran after what Thad Cochran did to Chris McDaniel. He argued the only thing important is taking back the senate at any cost, not that principled stuff I was talking about, which apparently was so last century.

Just like Karl Rover and many other establishment types, his loyalty is to Republicans, not Conservatives or doing the right thing, you know like standing on your principles when your own party messes over the good ones. Also, just like Karl Rover, Kurt uses the term Conservative loosely.

At best Kurt is as ‘Conservative’ as David Brooks from the NYT, Jennifer Rubin from the WP, Joe Scarborough from MSNBC and Rep. Peter King (the guy who loves Ted Cruz so much) from New York.

If your main issue is being an unprincipled Republican who’s only loyalty is to the party, Kurt Schlichter is your man.
