Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’ll take a look at the past week with Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson of the Hugh Hewitt Show. Duane and I will talk about the New Tone in Washington, and who’s proving tone-deaf. Republicans got off to a fast start this week in the House, and we’ll discuss their new initiatives and who may be surprising some conservatives. We’ll also ask our Chatizens to think of a New Tone nickname for Duane, since we need something that doesn’t refer to war or violence. Duane “Umpire” Patterson? Duane “Director” Patterson? Duane “Manpris” Patterson? All of this and more — and stay tuned for a preview of tonight’s Hugh Hewitt Show.
