The Northern Alliance Radio Network will be on the air today, with our six-hour-long broadcast schedule starting at 11 am CT. The first two hours features Power Line’s John Hinderaker and Chad and Brian from Fraters Libertas. Mitch and I hit the airwaves for the second shift from 1-3 pm CT, and King Banaian and Michael Broadkorb have The Final Word from 3-5. If you’re in the Twin Cities, you can hear us on AM 1280 The Patriot, or on the station’s Internet stream if you’re outside of the broadcast area.

Today, Mitch and I kick off August by looking forward to the Republican convention and the State Fair. We’ll look back at the week’s stories in politics, too, and take a look at Barack Obama’s precipitous fall in the polls. Did John McCain’s ridicule get under Team Obama’s skin? We’ll also talk about the historical event yesterday in which one party tried to evict the other from the floor of the House, and discuss energy policy.

And then we’ll make fun of Sitemeter, too.

Be sure to call 651-289-4488 to join the conversation! And assuming we can access it this time, join Mitch and I in chat:
