Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we have a great program for you today! Jim Geraghty joins us to give us the Ledge Report for the first hour. Sean Duffy will call and update us on his fundraising effort in his campaign to replace David Obey in Congress — today is his “Strike a Blow for Freedom” day, and Duffy’s trying to create a contribution explosion to launch his effort. Be sure to open your wallets, because Obey’s backers will be opening theirs.

In bonus minutes, I’m excited to welcome Adam Baldwin of Big Hollywood to the show. I’ve been a fan of his work since My Bodyguard and he’s currently appearing on the hit NBC show Chuck, but we’re going to be talking politics today instead of entertainment. We’re going to talk about the history of political correctness, Adam’s thought-provoking post “The Anguish of the Apostate,” the Howard Zinn history on the History Channel, and much, much more. I’ll be doing my homework for today’s show!
