Ed Morrissey has recently finished conquering and looting another Caribbean island, so he’s a bit too busy counting up the gold coins and other plundered treasures to join us, so I’ll be guest hosting another edition of The NOT Ed Morrissey Show. Today we’ll be joined by friend of the show and designated spokesperson for Outside the Beltway, Doug Mataconis for the first half hour. Doug will be discussing the apocalyptic vision laid out in his essay, What happens to the GOP if Obama wins the election? (As well as my response at Hot Air today.)

In the second half, we hope to be joined by Hot Air’s very own lovely and talented Tina Korbe. We’ll ask her about some of her recent projections regarding the eventual GOP nominee (particularly if it’s Romney) as well as catching up on the latest items she’s been uncovering down in Washington.

The show is produced and made possible by the hard work of Chris, a.k.a. Duke of the dance, and the live chat during the show is under the watchful eye of Monster who is also the master of many of the interactive chat features which make the audience participation portion of the show so enjoyable. The NOT 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 Ed’s Facebook page, too!
