Let’s try this again, and see if I can get it right. I’m on semi-vacation this week, blogging from the ancestral Morrissey homes in Southern California, so I want to give folks a chance to see the Best of the Ed Morrissey Show. Today, I’m re-running Michelle’s appearance, in which she underscores the point about runaway bailout programs six weeks ago, before that became apparent. It’s the only time I’ve worn a tie for the show. And hey, it didn’t look bad at all! Rick Moran joined us in the second half to talk about Barack Obama and whether he’s really a socialist, or just an opportunist.
